Dark coppery color with a thin tannish head. Tart, fruity, but dark. Cherry, fig, leading to a punchy finish. Light oak and earthiness.

750 ml bottle shared by Scott. Poured a reddish/ amber with a smaller to average beige tight foamy head. Aroma of vinegar, balsamic, wet barrel, sour cherries, model glue. Average body with average carbonation, a weird combo of sour and big maltiness along with a lingering sour burn. Flavor is tart, along with cherry skins, vinegar, slight red wine, wine soaked bread. Very nice.

Liked this a lot. Tart enough to be interesting, some funky moldy bread aroma.flavor kind of reminded me a little of sourdough bread. A little oaky, some red berry/fruity flavors. Solid beer, would get some more.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A corked and caged 1 pt. 9.4 oz. bottle yields a clear, dark brown liquid with hints of red hue. There is a substantial tan head that lingers until the glass is empty, leaving good lacing. The aroma is earthy, fruity and spicy. There is also a hint of alcohol in the nose. Palate entry is sweet and short-lived as flavors of dark cherry, raisin, port wine and peppery spice quickly take over. The oak barrel aging really peeks through in the finish, which is gloriously well-balanced, complex and long-lasting. ABV comes in at 9.0 percent. Very Good.

Seriously good. Brown, slightly fruity, and sour. There’s a bit of vinegar taste that makes it feel slightly "cheap" but other than that, a surprising entry into the world of sours by Samuel Adams.
