650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, with moderate lacing, over a clear, dark brown/black (SRM 40) body....nose is fruits including pomegranate, plum, raisin, brown sugar, hints of whiskey....taste is sweet with tones of molasses, pomegranate, plum, brown sugar, raisin, hints of coffee, cocoa, chocolate, light whiskey, vinous tones, finishing with light bitterness.....mouth feel thick, quite sticky, mildly astringent, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds light tingle. This is a rich, very sweet, complex, voluptuous beer, that is reminiscent of many dessert wines. It would not be good in a desert. The sweetness, although with many layers, dominates. This is not a beer for those who like dry, hoppy, clean finishing beers. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a clear reddish brown beer with a medium sized beige head on top. Aroma is funky, doughy and had some roasted characters. Flavour is very sour, tarty and funky. Big oak and cherries going on here. Very nice surprise, didn’t see it coming.

Ron (2451) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with a thick dense light tan head. Aroma of toffee, vanilla, oak, citrus, rye and fruity yeast esters. Flavor of bourbon, rye, oaky vanilla, fruity esters, cherries and mild cocoa. Medium to full body with a soft smooth mouth feel. Unique blend of beers with a great barrel character. I was hoping for more malt, because the alcohol was not well hidden.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 2/18/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big sour cherry, green apple, raisin, prune, caramel, toast, toffee, chocolate, oak, clove, red wine, vinegar, musty funk, leather, herbal, light vanilla, light bourbon, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky yeast, dark malt, and moderate bourbon barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big sour cherry, green apple, raisin, prune, caramel, toast, toffee, chocolate, oak, clove, red wine, vinegar, musty funk, leather, herbal, light vanilla, light bourbon, and yeast/oak earthiness. Nice amount of fruity/earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of sour cherry, green apple, raisin, prune, caramel, toast, toffee, chocolate, oak, clove, red wine, vinegar, musty funk, leather, herbal, light vanilla, light bourbon, and yeast/oak earthiness. Fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast, dark malt, and bourbon barrel flavors; with an awesome sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth and moderately creamy/acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding sour strong ale! All around fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast, dark malt, and bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

22oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick dense light tan head. Aroma of toffee, vanilla, oak, citrus and fruity yeast esters. Flavor of oaky vanilla, fruity esters, cherries and mild cocoa. Medium to full body with a soft smooth mouth feel. Really good beer, unique blend of beers with a great barrel character.

unclemike (2213) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Amber red colour. Malty sweet aroma, some heavily caramelized crystal and toasted malt with a sweet cherry fruitiness and a spicy hop bouquet throughout. Pine and earthy/mildly resinous hops. Sweet malts up front balance with the strong hoppiness later on. A bit of honeyed character. Some pine and black pepper on the finish.

suprchunk (2085) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Dark brown pour. More black. Small tan head. No lacing. Nice aroma of acetic sourness and molasses. Maybe too much molasses. Taste is the same with chocolate. A bit sour but way too much sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rougeau13 (1970) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2013
Very dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma of sweet pomegranate, wood, chocolate, rye bread, prunes, bourbon and spice. Taste is rich and sweet, very slightly bitter, woody, and full of dark fruit. Low carbonation, oily, full body. A little dry. I thought it would be way too muddy with all those beers in it, and it is perhaps a tad sweeter than I’d like, but it comes off pretty well.

Bottle poured a dark brown color with a fizzy tan head. Aroma has bourbon barrels, rye, funky esters, dark fruit, and cherry. Mouth feel is medium with a thick coating for a sour and carbonation medium low. Flavor is rich on the barrels, dark fruit, and cherry tartness.
