3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2013 The aroma is complex to say the least! Dark fruit, caramel, malts, cherries, - rich and inviting. Pours a soft black with a mostly diminishing dark tan head and lacing around the ring. The taste is very sweet. Cherries, prunes, vanilla, caramel. Medium to ful body with soft carbonation. Syrupy smooth mouthfeel. Overall, after the enticing aroma, I was disappointed by how overly sweet and syrupy this beer was.

Surprisingly works! Nice sweetness. Some bourbony infusion. And funk on top, but in a complimentary way. This is the type of sour I like.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle, bottled on 2/18/2013. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown with some reddish tints, and about a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like tart dark fruit (cherries), vinegar, whiskey, wood, lemon peel and some blackberries. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some raisins, caramel, vanilla and a bit of chocolate. I think the tart fruitiness is dominant, but the whiskey flavor is noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and has low/moderate carbonation. I thought this was a good brew, I wasn’t expecting the tartness so it was a nice surprise. Definitely worth a try. $10.99 a bottle.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome stuff. On tap at Oblivion. Nose is big pomegranate, bourbon, vanilla, toffee, molasses, and chocolate/roast. This beer is almost chewy. Thick, black, motor oil pour. Taste follows up like the aroma. Big time red/dark fruits with plenty of chocolate and bourbon, some nuts, caramel, vanilla, and a touch of alcohol. Very rich. Great stuff.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from the holiday pack. Pours Very Dark Brown, not much head. Nose is lemon, sweet doppelbockesque malt (why isn’t there a red squiggly line under that?), toffee, grapefruit, sourness. Flavour is very sweet and very sour, leathery, palate is heavy, this was pretty disgusting to me. It may be getting more sour as it ages. The heaviness sweetness and sourness do not blend well.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ahhh finally found this beer (Oblivion Taproom). The pour was a brilliant deep red with silky lacing. The aroma was of chocolate, molasses, oak, vanilla and raisins. This one packed some serious flavor, a lot like liquor-soaked, chocolate-covered raisins with lots of deep malt flavors. Once again does this prove why they are my favorite brewery.
