Ratman197 (10220) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2011
On tap at Bistro BA Fest poured a hazy brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of port, carmel, barnyard funk and fruittines. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of fruittiness, barnyard funk, light carmel and light vinous notes with a crisp dry lingering funky fruity finish.

Draft. Dark mahogony beer with a dark cream colored head. Port and malt aroma with toffee. Port and malt flavor with light fruitiness. Medium bodied. Port and malt lingers with light fruit and light earth.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Marin 21 (aged in Port with brett and other bugs). Pours with a murky brown body and a thin tan head. Aromas of red wine, vinous, funk, horseblanket, acidity, currants, vinous, dates and brown sugar. Flavors of brown sugar, acidity, tongs of funk, alcohol, red wine and berries. Not a ESA as the site currently has it. Not a traditional old ale either (including traditional old ales with brett c...this is sour). Acidity and a bit thing, some tannins and light bubbles. Good, interesting. Like a young Consecration.

JohnnyJ (4553) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Draft. Hazy reddish brown pour, small off-white head, which diminishes to almost nothing. Strange beer. Lightly sour, oak, fruit, grape, and sweet malts. Not really what I was expecting. I am not sure if "English Strong Ale" is correct for this beer.

AgentSteve (1640) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Pours medium ruddy brown with no head. Slight Brett in the nose along with malt and wood. Same in the flavor. Very faint Brett characteristics with a sweet finish of vinous fruits.

On tap at the Bistro BA festival. Pours black with no head. Light sour aroma. Interesting - mildly sour - almost creamy texture. Malt flavor - and not a lot of bitter. A little grapey - slightly oaky.
