Infinitely complex in aroma and flavor with notes of maltiness and tartness throughout. An unsurpassed old brown with the richness and complexity of a vintage wine.

Garrold (1337) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, dark, reddy brown. Film and halo of tan head. Sour cherry. Kirsch. Brown bread, grainy maltiness. Light bonfire toffee. Some dried vinous fruit in there, too. Taste is light sour. Boozy sweetness. An apple core dryness and bitterness, gives balance. Palate is smooth. Finish is dry and tart, with a little lingering, fruity sweetness.

Lele (113) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 22, 2014
Birra di grandissima complessità, lo si vede anche dall’aroma. In bocca si percepisce subito un agrodolce, o più che altro acido, per poi evolvere verso la fine in un affumicato e tostato di classe, che ricorda un whisky. Purtroppo è decisamente acida per i miei gusti. Ma a chi l’acido non dispiace, decisamente la consiglio.

Tap: brown color with some red hues. Light brown frothy head that sticks around the edge for quite a while with some spotty lacing. Sweet tart apple aroma with a smooth feel and acidic vinegar flavor finish. This vinegar is mainly in the aftertaste. Other flavors I noticed were rubber, tart raspberry, with some flat cola. Overall, pretty awesome.

Ein erstaunliches Gebräu, das in seiner Konsistenz stellenweise an Pflaumensirup erinnert und gewisse Aromen davon auch in sich trägt. Fruchtig und dick ist es, mit einer Menge Bumms und einer gewissen Säure. Zum Schluss hin kommt wieder der Pflaumensirup und rundet es gar etwas kernig und herb ab.

Ferris (4253) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Draft - Sour cherry, balsamic and some light oak. Dirty brown with a rich beige head. Tart sweet cherry, nice long finish. Not bad, hits all the right notes.

McTapps (4100) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a hazy deep brown colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of acid, basement and nuts. Taste of sour berries, vinegar, nuts, spruce and spices. Leavy and malty finish with a big acid-sour ending. Nice one.

Helsdon (159) - Toronto, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Finally unwrapped the bottle picked up at my local LCBO a few weeks ago. Pours a dark cola, and delivers a thin sheet of dense off white head, with lacing. Smells of sweet cherries and sour grapes. Nice contrast. The taste is not dissimilar. Lots of fruity sweetness and sour. Cherries and grapes. The malts take a back seat here, to the point where the beer taste a little, uh...thin, but overall a good beer.

Torrefacto (547) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2014
Color caoba oscuro con espuma beige ligera. Aromas frutos rojos y tostados más matizados. Cuerpo medio, inicio dulce y afrutado con trazos muy equilibrados de acidez. la madera y los tostados también se distinguen bien. El final es seco y el regusto ligeramente ácido. Muy rica.

Habanero (2624) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2014
Bottled. Pours deep amber with a small beige head. Aroma of cherries, berries and caramel. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. medium bodied, oily texture and flat to soft carb. An excellent Sour.
