brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Very dark brown, almost black, with a khaki head. Sour, acetic, fruity nose. Currants, leather, oak, and green apple. Mild alcohol and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is tart and acetic as well. Big currant, raisin, green apple, and lemon. Leather, chocolate, oak, and balsamic. A touch boozy on the finish.

Yay for Mendocino! Both coasts! Bomber from the Vacaville BevMo. From case No. 02! Yeah. Big whoops. Anyway... It pours like Guinness with a widget. Very dark brown with lots of little bubbles that collapse beneath a foamy dark tan head. The aroma is challenging. Like mustard? Plus a lot of dark malt, wood, dark fruit, whiskey. Full bodied. Flavor is very strange. Swear I get mustard, but that’s immediately followed by a cascade of different dark malt and woody/whisky flavors. You name it, it might be in here. Except for scotch. Not getting smoke. I even think there may be chocolate and coffee. This is really fantastically complicated. Super brilliant ale.

Sammy (9977) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours dark brown with some white head. Nice sour cuvee taste, though way too sweet finish. Nice drinkability, to be shared. Bottle from somewhere this year, in the USA.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle from Hebrew 2013 Super Jewbulation Holiday package. Pours thick and turbid dark blackish with almost no khaki head Nose is very tart and lactic, with notes of cherry, berry, and oaty lactose. Tastes much sweeter than every tart or oud bruin I have ever had, and too sweet to be considered a strong ale. I don’t do this much, but I;m summarily Sommeliering thia into the sour red category, albeit on the sweet side. It works for me in that regard, and has welll hidden alcohol, with a sweet tart fruit presence.

Bottle at WTWBA. Dark cola pour with a frothy head. Rich dark fruit. Sweet. Very good!

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Bottle, shared with Parksy, phantomhennes, TvM, and heavylaevy. Murky dark amber brown. Funky malty nose. Flavours of chocolate, brown bread, sour cherries, barnyard. Malty, funky, modestly sour-- a combination that really resonates with me.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Draft served in a snifter at Heavy Riff. Pours a deep brown with amber edges and a small beige head. Abundant berry fruit in this one, along with plums, chocolate, figs, raisins, vanilla, caramel, oak, bourbon, and a bit of rye spice. Medium-full bodied, with a tart, funky, sweet mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. A little bit of umami character on the palate, too. Yet another complex, interesting, satisfying barrel aged beer from these guys.
