3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12.68 oz. bottle from the brewery. Batch 8. Deep mahogany color without any head. Great nose! Black Cherry, notes of oak and Lees. I get a lot of barrel notes in the flavor. Musty oak, pond moss, Dark berries, red wine, wood sourness. Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel with with a sour and warming finish. ABV is not noticeable. Mild vinegar notes that are slightly off putting. Overall still pretty good.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2013 Thanks to Tommy and Chris for this, so refresh my memory on how this is 10% because it feels like I am drinking supplication with currents...maybe even a bit sweater...hints of oak, dry backbone, and some sourness.
Alright so now I can rate this good and proper. Sour red brown pour with some light fizzy carbonation. Aroma of sour cherries and hints of oak. Flavour is sour boo ya shak a, little bit of oak right in the middle, acidic finish on the back of the throat. Just fucking great. Love it.

Batch 005 poured into a tulip glass. Well balanced sour with deep, dark fruit and slight wet blanket interplaying. Slight honey in the background. Oak is lightly pronounced. Amber-caramel and hazy with an off-white head that is nearly non-existent but leaves a collar. Tart and tangy with dark fruit. Above average carbonation. Very dry. [Woo hoo!!! I was the 1000th rating of this beer!!]

Chocolate, tobacco, currants, dark fruits all figure prominently in the aroma. Clear dark brown body is topped by a decent off white head that recedes to ring. Sweet up front with a creeping tart sour followup. Plenty of dark fruits and citrus and some mineral qualities. Champagne-like effervescence and medium body. Tulip glass. Allowed to warm from fridge temperature. Bottle. Batch 001X1.

Really good sour. Pours a translucent brown with no head. Smell is sour fruit funk. Taste is of course a fruity sour that makes your mouth water. Really nice and refreshing.
