Bottle shared by wolf. Black in color, good frosty white head. Aroma was dark fruits, raisons, figs. Taste was sweet raisons other fruits, and a little spiceyness. I couldnt pick up on any of the sour (brett) in there. Texture and carbonation level were good as well. Overall a solid beer.

750ml bottle with thanks to WeeHeavySD from a trade in June of 2007, so at least a year old, but maybe a bit older. Thanks Jon! Pours a clear dark ruby brown with a sizable fizzy yellowish tan head that slowly settles to a thin cap, moderate retention and minor lacing. Aroma is ripe dark fruits, raisin and plums, along with hints of vanilla, caramel, nutmeg and other warm spices. Flavor is more ripe fruits, light spice; a sour note on the finish that works well. A well rounded enjoyable cool weather treat that opened up nicely as it warmed, thanks again Jonathan!

Thanks BOLTZ7555 for this awesome beer. Pours a dark cloudy brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit, and some spices. It also has some aroma of a sour beer that I really like. Flavor was great, it was sweet and sour at the same time. Really glad I was able to try it...I might have to get some more;

brokephibroke (307) - Mead, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Murky brown black tea like pour with basically no head beyond a few off white bubbles. Not to aromatic, some spice, cloves? Maybe plain yohgurt. Taste is superb: sweetness up front with dried fruit and honey, sour backbbone and a spicy, noticable rosemary finish. Minimal carbonation with a nice coating palate. This is a fine, fine beer!

Bottle. [thank you, myrup]
Pours deep dark chestnut brown with a small, staying, creamy, light-beige head. aroma has laurels, cloves, vanilla, cinnamon, roasted malts, plums, hazelnuts and chocolate. Actually a bit Christmas-y. Low carbonation with a nice, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is great, good, fruitiness with raisins, plums and a bit of hops. Coriander, lightly roasted with some hazelnuts. Brilliant aftertaste with dry chocolate. o sign of the alcohol. Really wonderful.

WeeObese (18) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 10, 2008
The beer pours a deep dark brown, with a small head that does not last long. The aroma the best part of this beer. Dark malty sweet aroma, slight molasses, followed by a nice sour funkiness. Great aroma. flavor is simiiar to the aroma but with a roasty flavor that I feel is a little strong. Overall, it is a nice balanced beer but much of the funkiness is overpowered by the roastiness. As the beer warms the rosemary becomes more apparent. I really like this beer a easy to drink especially for a 9% AVB. I hope as it ages the brett/sour comes out more and the roastiness fades a little.

750ml bottle(Patrons & Saints Club)-Pours an amber body with a small covering for a head with a lot of floaties. Aroma of fruit, sweetness, and a lambic smell. Taste of malt, sweetness, fruit, raisin, and spices. This full bodied brew finishes with a nice smooth finish. A nice well balanced brew.

Bottle. Aroma of malt and yeast and a slight sweetness. Pours a dark dark red brown color with a small tan head that dispates quickly. Tastes slightly of raisin, yeast darker fruit and also a nice cream feel that has chocolate and coffee in it. So far my favorite beer yet
