500ml bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Blend two. April 2014. Awesome big tart blackberry aroma. The nose alone makes my mouth water. Beautiful dark red brown color. Thin whitish pinkish head. Loose bits of lace. Some chocolate, raspberry-like character. Nice oak. Mildly peppery. Some caramel. Medium to bigger body. Drinks a bit bigger than 5.9%. Full feel. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate-plus sour taste, moderate-plus sweet. Light bitter. Very enjoyable stuff. This is fantastic. Was on the fence to 4.3.

Bottle (batch 2) courtesy of Errl shared with the group. Pours a hazy dark reddish purple brown color with a small pinkish head. The aroma had wonderful tart blackberry, oak, some acidity and funk. The flavor had tart/sour blackberry, oak, funk, some acidity but in a good way, drinkable with a nice sour character.

375 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Bottle thanks to errl! Pours a clear, dark red, nearing purple color. The aroma is a lot like a blackberry pie that you dont have to worry about picking the seeds out of your teeth. I get blackberry sourness, vanilla, a little crusty notes. Awesome beer. Mild sourness, and big on the fruit. Delicious!
