Bottled shared at Tired Hands on way back from Hill Farmstead (ugh).
Pours a dark cola brown with a light khaki head. Nose is acidic, oak, light nut, tart. Flavor is remarkably far away from any brown ale, tart, oak, funky, dark fruit, light bitterness.

Bottle @ ZZT 9 thanks to Martinus. A bit unclear dark red to brown color, small beige head. Smell and taste are wood and quite sour. Very hard to describe. Too sour for me.

375ml bottle, thanks to Paul and Renee. Dark murky brown with a light tan head. So at first this was a huge sour malty delicious beer but as it warmed up it changed completely. Makes me think of a flemish brown with some tang, malt vinegar, oak, some cherry notes. Moderate body and mild+ carbonation, seems a little thin on the finish but still tasty.

Bottle to taster (shared by GAbell). Looks alright; a murky brown with foamy beige head. Smells yeasty, malty, and mildly bretty. Tastes much tarter than it smells. Solid on the palate. Good, not great.

Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul.
The beer is cola brown with a thin, fizzy head. I don’t pick out walnuts, per se. Aromas of earth, musty funk, vinous notes, oak. Some cherry notes with a lovely sour quality. Piquant and delicious. Fairly light in body, though bold in flavor. Assertive without being aggressive. Quite tasty.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 375ml bottle opens with a tiny gush of foam, pours deep rich brown with red tint and a finger of head. Nose is dusty wood funk and musty tart subtle berry. Taste is tart earthy cola, nuts, funky oak, some dark berry notes. Finish is dry tart and at times creamy, vanilla notes, woody funk, bits of toasted walnut. A very balanced sour. Very nice.

Bottle... This beer rocks!... Hazy deep-copper ale with no head. The olfactory highlights include notes of funky wood, leather, caramel and fruity cherries. Medium-bodied and raspy with restrained carbonation. The flavor is moderately sour and fruity with a mild, malty, caramel sweetness that cuts into the acidity - but fortunately, not too deeply. Finishes bready and tart. Kudos to landhoney for suplying this world class bottle of beer!
