Draft to taster at Cincy beerfest 16. Pours a hazy caramel brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet, caramel malt, brown sugar, tart black cherry character, additional dark fruit, wood, vinegar, lactic sour notes, dark caramel, mild funk, just a bit too much acetic character for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pour. Dark ruby pour. Aroma is quite vinous, sweet, woody. Taste is at first sweet, then bracingly tart, then woody...never really had something progress in layers like this. Vinegar comes out as it warms, but still sweet and woody.

tap. Deep amber red with one finger head. Tart, but not really sour. Cherry and berry notes, light vinegar. I was hoping for some more yeasty funk. Certainly a tasty beer, but I was expecting something more based on the hype.
