savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 23, 2013
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.

Dark black in color... Aroma of coffee, funk, tartness... Flavor is huge... Coffee, chocolate are extremely prevalent and balance the tartness... Amazing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rougeau13 (2119) - 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.

blklab2007 (2062) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 8, 2013
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.

Sounds like it should be a muddled mess but this is some expertly blended stuff. Quite fruity with plum and apple, butterscotch and oak.

650 mL bottle. Don’t know why I expected this one to be lighter coloured. It’s brown. Small brown head. Bizarre aroma has roast and funk up front. It actually smells like a bunch of different beers blended together. The sour hits you first, and you’re thinking, hey, this is pretty good. Then you get hit with all this other, sweeter stuff. Chocolate and all. Big in a weird, small way. Very, very interesting.

Bacterial (1879) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2013
Dark pour, slight tan head. Big dark fruit nose, some caramel and vanilla. Very sweet, complex and interesting. Big fruits, plum and fig. Some heat mixed in there as well. Going to be hard to finish the entire bottle - be sure to share with some friends!

NikkTwist (1842) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Draft at Moriartys. Pitch black pour that started with a tight white head that mostly disappeared. Big swath of flavors. Coffee and chocolate definitely, but deep dark fruit seems most prevalent. Blunt sour funk surrounding notes of dried blueberries, strawberries and blackberries. Raisins, dates and prunes as well but, to me, the berry flavors are stronger. Some ash and spice as well. Thick body nearly coats the tongue. The bitters balance out the sugars. Big like a Stout, but style-wise very different. Feels like a chewy malt Port cordial.

BroSpud (1793) - , Massachusetts, USA - APR 27, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with an off white head. Fruity, musty and definitely funky aroma. Very sweet, probably from the pomegrante, and malty with dark fruit flavors among so many other flavors that change as it warms. This is quite an interesting beer and one that will probably improve with age.

BMMillsy (1628) - Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Bottle dated 2/18/2013. Batch No. 2. Bottle neck label says "L’chaim sucka" so you know you are in for some fun. Pours deep dark brown with a dark kahki brown head. Smell is crazy. A combination of sour beer and chocolate, with something that reminds me if wine. Smells sweet with some citrus. Bit if the rye whiskey and oak on the nose, too. flavor is sweet up front with chocolate and lots of molasses. Fades into sweet black cherries and sour vinegar. Rye whiskey is present but it is not too boozy. Sweet lingering aftertaste on the palate. Like a slightly sour cherry cordial. Pretty heavy beer, with low-to-medium carbonation. Had no clue what to expect with this, but it actually turned out rather nicely. No single word to describe this. It is certainly funky. Share the bomber, just too much sweet for one.
