BrettTaylor (460) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a medium dark brown with ruby highlights and a two finger head. Head falls some, but is very persistent. Aroma - sour cherry, sweetness underneath, and a touch of yeast. Sweet and sour with a small to moderate funk, sweetness underneath, finishes with a hint of dark malt. It is not really rich or watery, but in between, fairly clean finish with a hint of cherry lingering at the back of the tongue.

Very dark with sweeter malt after taste. Nice aroma and color. Good brown beer, but unknown when I would desire the taste.

574deadzone (994) - North Central, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2014
Pours a cloudy brown with orange edging and a fairly thick khaki head that settles to a thick ring and film, leaving some dripping webby lace. Nose involves oak and apple cider vinegar, a hint of brown sugar. Somewhat sweet, quite tart, a bit bitter. Light bodied, very active, cleansing drying tartness on the tongue, finishing fairly lengthy with oak tartness. Pretty decent, not a lot of complexity, but it’s mostly agreeable and somewhat versatile.

CaraCurtis (116) - Nevada, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber/orange color, thin frothy beige head, with some apparent lacing. Aroma shows through with some oak and berry. A slight sourness to the taste, earthy, some dryness to the end and a bubbly mouthful that quickly dissipates., but is nice.
