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.

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.

Bottle, opaque coffee brown body, head the color of almonds, dissipates quick. Aroma is green apple, caramel, vanilla, boubon and whiskey, oak, faintly funky. Taste is caramel, spice, oak, green apple, whiskey, a hint of anise, and bourbon at the back in the aftertaste. Finish is sour with oak and bourbon. Palate is smooth, carbonation a bit sharp.

From the Hanukkah pack. Pretty wary about this could have been a mess but ended up pretty damn good. The sour was such a nice twist on what could have been a syrupy mess. Serving: Bottle
