Bomber. Pours a rich copper, ruby color with reddish hue. Slight off white head. Acidic aroma, some malt noted. Taste is a tart fruitiness, sharp on the tongue. Very interesting flavors, good combo with sweetness of the malt. Let it warm a bit, and you get a different beer. Barrell aging becomes more apparent. Buttery, banana finish. Very Good, excellent for the sour style!

Clean ruby copper pour with one finger of tan head. Acetic nose, lots of diacetyl in there too. Popcorn and butter on the finish. Some cherry skins and a medium tartness. Tastes like lots of pediococcus made lots of diacetyl. Medium body.

Root beer colored pour, on tap at Churchkey. Nose holds balsamic and red wine vinegar, plum, oaky vanilla, and wood. The flavor is extremely acidic, with more fruity vinous tones and acetic abrasiveness. Damn solid.

Pours a clear light cola color with a thin white head. Aroma with tons of oak and wood. Some funk and cherry with notes of toasted bread and notes. Flavor is sweet when it first hits the tongue. Funky and fruity, with some cherry notes. Moderately tart and dry finish.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 3, 2011
22oz bottle: pours a transparent deep mahogany with ruby hues and a well-lacing light tan head. Has a lightly fruity, vinous and tart nose with notes of toasted oak. Starts with pretty good fullness and effervescent carbonation with some sweet dark caramel and black cherries with a decent balance of tartness before a drier finish with some lingering buttery oak. True to style and nice complexity.

This poured a dark amber color with a beige head. The aroma contains some nutmeg, some woody notes, dark fruit, and vinegar. The flavor contains cherries, vinegar, and caramel. The finish is sour but also a bit malty. Overall this is a pretty good beer.

Sample at a tasting at Suttree’s. Pours nice ruby with orange hue, slight white head. Aroma is red wine vinegar, some fruit and raisin notes. The flavor is caramel with an acetic kick. There’s even a bit of toast in there. Sweetish finish with a bit of burnt sugar. Nice aftertaste.
