Bottle:   Deep deep brown, dark brown hues, thin sudsy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Hmmm, slight Sour Red/Brown like funky sourness on the nose.   Sweet fruity sourness on the tongue.   This really is like a soft Sour Red/Brown.   I do not think this is what was intended at all.   Not sour per say, but very tart.   Underlying fruitiness, both light and dark.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Very light barrel aging on the finish.   Somewhat of a weird beer, a light Sour Red/Brown that seems barrel aged.   Four months old and it does this?   Strange...

Bottle at a tasting at Beer&Beyond shop. Dark brown with a creamy head. Aroma - roasted malts, dark fruits, wood, some funky notes . Taste - sweet-sour, caramel, pomegranate, dried fruits, bourbon, wood. Interesting, though a bit messy.

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.

unclemattie (4166) - Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2014
22oz bottle; Batch 02/1492; Bottled 2/18/2013. Deepest, darkest brown color. Aroma of funk, attic notes, large amounts of dark fruits. Scents of raisins, tart esters, sugary malt. Smells like a sweet Quad. Bold sour taste. IDK if it’s supposed to be this tart. Flavor of vinous grapes & chocolate, dark fruit, fig, dates, pureéd raisins. Finishes with flavors of dark malts syrup, tastes of chocolate, hidden hops. Sticky mouthfeel. It’s gonna take me a while to finish off this sour bottle. Overall, chocolate balsamic. (4064)

Cybercat (3278) - Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Strong aroma has a definite overtone of bourbon and whisky, plus a malty hint. Pours a rich, warm coffee brown with a thick dirty tan head. Flavor is quite sweet, a little too sweet for a beer - sorry, a point off there. It has a strong bourbon/whisky overtone and hints of malt and caramel. De trop de caramel, in fact. A good effort, but not my cup of tea - er, stein of beer. I’m glad other people liked it, though. Texture is thick and syrupy, fairly fizzy. I am drinking this, and it ain’t headed for the sink.

(22oz bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, roasted malt, wood, bourbon, maple syrup, and caramel. Flavor of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, wood, bourbon, plum, raisins, toffee, and cherry.

Cirrhosis (1203) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
Dark cola brown with a creamy cap floating on top. Prunes, a funk I’m not sure about, daaaaa the only thing I can think of is old urinal but that’s too harsh sounding. Taste the bourbon, taste the rye, the bourbon is better. So very sweet! Christmas spice is showing up now when warm. Thick and syrupy. Beer is not doing it for tonight, I’m sorry I’m really trying to like this beer but I’m not.

Iphonephan (3190) - McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2013
From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruits. This one is interesting. Plenty of sourness along side the oaky barrel aged flavors. Does not really work for me. But not a drain pour either.

brokensail (10795) - Orange County, 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.
