Bottle with hardly any carbonation. Rich aroma: dark cherry, fig, plum, Dr. Pepper, some balsamic vinegar and buttery oak and vanilla. Flavor has more pronounced tartness and a bitter sour cherry background. Has become very tart in its age, but still displays lovely barrel character and just enough dark fruit sweetness.

Bottle (thanks bu11zeye for this one)... Poured deep, dark brownish/near black with no head. Complete still and flat. Sour with oak and char and a good amount of sweetness here. Flavors and aroma were good, and usually I don’t mind less carbonated beers but this definitely would have benefited from a fuller, more vibrant mouthfeel.

Completely flat dark brown to black. Looks like molasses Sort of a mini cherry pie nose. Some caramel and mrs butters worth. Taste is intense! Insanely malty with lots if buttery biscuit notes. Tons of sour cherry and tart oakiness. Very tannic and almost grape skin like. Has a porter like chocolate taste

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle shared by KieferUGA. The legend of flatabbey continues. Taste was actually very complex and probably more dark than I have had in a sour. Aroma is light vinous, oak, some vanilla, dark roast. Taste has a mild tartness with lost of dark fruits and heavy roasted malts. Earthy, oak, some cocoa even. Just flat as flat could be which took away from the experience, but there was a good beer there for sure. Ok.

Bottle from the 2009 sinners club. How did you guess? Black colored pour without any head. Totally flat. Huge bourbon smell and taste with some sour kind of funk - not sure if that is intended or not. I think most of this went down the drain because it was just not a pleasing experience. What could have been a great beer was ruined by having no carbonation.

Thanks to my good friend in the desert for hooking me up with this bottle. Dark murky brown pour with no head. Sour dark fruit and vinous aromas. All kinds of vinous and sour stone fruit notes with caramel malt, vanilla, and woody undertones. Delicious with a great mouthfeel and good balance. A little light on the carbonation.

Slutfest! Black, little head. Aroma is sour cherry. Flavor is sour cherry with a soft chocolate flavor. Touch of a woodsy note. Really nice. A rather lovely beer in many ways.

Slutfest 2013: Currant and coffee aroma. Cloudy dark brown, no head. Currant and oak flavor with subtle coffee notes. Blood-like viscosity and body. Ecletectic.

375 mL bottle shared at Slutfest 4. Pours a dark brown color with a thin head. Fair head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, tart herbal finish. The taste is caramel, roasted malts, bright tart citrus, raisin. Medium bodied. Disjointed a bit, but good.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle. Sweet and sour nose with lots of fruit. Fig, cherry, plum, raisin. Beyond that there is some caramel, oak, and funk. Dark reddish-brown with no head. Flavor is also loaded with fruit but dominated by tartness and oak. Dry, with a hint of acetone. Long finish of earthy funk and sourness, punctuated by aforementioned fruit notes.
