22 oz. bottle from notes. Pours a very dark brown color with mahogany hints and a smaller beige head that collapses into a thin ring. The aroma is sweet malts, pomegranate juice with a slight tart character, molasses, some chocolate notes. The flavor is more sweet malts, quite a bit of dark fruit character, chocolate, more rye than previous years, woody, mild acidic notes, molasses, brown sugar and light barrel influences. When this first hits the palate it seems to carry more body, but the second part of the taste is influenced more by fruit juices. Always interesting beers.

22oz bottle 3/26/16 3,700th Rating-42° in Snifter-Pours dark cola with a small tan head. Aroma of sour, bourbon, funk, malt, and caramel. Taste of the same with a lot going on but not in a bad way. This medium to full bodied brew hides the ABV and is rather tasty and warms the body on a chilly night.

22 oz bottle. Aroma of something that you just want to drink right away and not hesitate. Drinks if figs, currents, raisens and funky Brett. Rally nice balance however the barrels used in this I can’t decide are masked by the Brett or just not present. Really well rounded beer.

Pours deep mahogany into a snifter. Mocha head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface. Bourbon and caramel aromas. Sweet with oak and pit fruit front to back. Medium length dry oak finish.

Bomber to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DuffMan). Looks good; a slightly translucent dark cola with fizzy light beige head that slowly but steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty with notes of oak, bourbon, fig, and date with a mild Flanders presence. Tastes like it smells with a medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Chewy and malty for a sour, but enjoyable.

DuffMan (8942) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle, shared with josephson. Very hazy reddish brown with a tan head that retains well. Beautiful blend of brown malts and vinous barrel character. Burnt sugars, sour cherries, plums, with prominent funky and spicy notes. Very complex and interesting, and very drinkable. Outstanding.

Smells a bit sour, a bit sweet. Reminds me of sour candy. I am also getting some oak, bourbon and plum. Aroma is part sour, part Belgian, part barley wine. Nice dark brown color with a tiny ring of off white foam. Taste is sour with a good amount of bourbon. I can tell that this has been barrel aged. Aftertaste is like a boozy jolly rancher. Palate is great. This was my first sour. It is growing on me the more of it I drink.
