Thanks Mark! Pours a brown coffee color with a solid quilt of tans. Smells of oak, cherry, touch of chocolate, maybe some raspberry musk. Decent nose. Flavor is richly cherry, some more dark chocolate, some more musk. There’s oak, some tannins and a nice tartness. A bit of umami in the flavor that gives depth to all the components. Medium on thin with moderately reserved carb and a dry finish. Good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Pours clear and dark mahogany with a small, fragile, off-white head that’s gone in a flash. The aroma is fruity, vinous and earthy – cherries, oak, wet leather, and tangy-dry red wine. Medium-bodied and watery with feather-soft carbonation. The flavor offers sour, fruity red-raspberries and sour cherries accompanied by whispers of earthy, berry-skin tannins and faint bitterness. Super-tart, sandpapery, bone-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks, Chris. Dark amber color pour with an off-white head. Aroma is quite sour and fruity. Some red wine vinegar, cherry, and Jolly Rancher. Lots of apple and lemon. Some caramel, too. Flavor has a subtle nuttiness which is kind of weird with the intense sourness. Lots of acetic and lactic character to this. Fruity cherry and Jolly Rancher. Some carame, oak, and lots of green apple.

Somehow actually tried a jackie os this weekend. And this one was not foul, obviously an intentional sour, leans towards sweet, tannic, berryskin.
