1 year old bottle tasted at a bottle share -- Poured a nice active-foamy head with a muddy red color. Aroma is super tart smelling. The taste was very very tart, like tingling cheeks tart. I wonder if the little extra age on the bottle helped with that. Overall great beer.

Aroma of oak, sour cherry, and caramel. Pours hazy red brown with a small white head. Taste is sour cherry, sweet caramel, slight wine vinegar, and a sweet malty finish. Nice and tart with a sweet caramel mouthfeel. Love it.

bottleshare thanks to DexterCat. Nose is a ton of fruit. Literally a fruit bomb. Slight woody character. Taste is very puckering at first but mellows out. Nice.
