Let me start off by saying I'm not a huge sour fan. I try I really do and some day maybe I will be. But not yet. That being said, I can tell this is exceptionally done. Very compile beer. Tasted from draft. Pours very dark almost black with fine light tan bubbles. Good lacing, almost nitro looking. Aroma of dark fruits and bourbon. Lots of cherries with some prunes, figs and bourbon notes. Taste is very tart with dark fruits and bourbon flavors. I really want to like this beer but just haven't grown into the sours. If your a sour fan I'm sure you'll enjoy immensely.

bottleshare thanks to Beechner224. Aroma of cherry, raspberry, and lots of fruit roll up. Pours a flat ruby red, rather dark. Flavor is immediately puckering on the first sip. Second sip is still pretty tart but starts to show some of the fruitiness in the flavor. As I keep drinking the tartness subsides and the fruit comes through. Not getting any raisin flavor. Pretty good.

Bottle in trade. Pours a ruby brown, no head. Aroma is cherries first, then the sourness hits. Taste lots of cherry and tartness, mouth coating. The beer is pretty much flat, still yummy.

Pours a dark brown, with copper/purple hues. Small off-white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is very vinous and acidic....rich tart cherry, raisin, brown sugar over a light roast and slight funk. Taste is very complex with loads of cherries upfront, but works quickly into a nice, oak and funk interplay. Vanilla, brown sugar and some roasted nuttiness provide some sweetness among the tart/sourness/funk of the yeast. Really nice barrel character gives hints of bourbon, port, sherry along with more dark fruit and leather. Finishes slightly oily and moderately tart and vinous. Really unique beer.
