Blurring the line between beer and wine, this barrel-aged blend clocks in at 8.1% abv and is full of roasty, tart, tobacco, and leather notes, tempered by a solid malt backbone which provides for a wonderfully silky mouth-feel.

On tap at Bistro BA Fest poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of grape, tobacco, vanilla, toffee, light roastiness and light oak. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, toffee, tobaccvo, fruittiness, oak and light vinous notes with a crisp dry lingering tobacco finish.

VERY similar to the farmhouse noir (not a bad thing) which obviously makes up a large portion of this blend. Fruit and leather, wood and light to moderate funk, with a slightly more complex malt bill with dark roast and toast. Another gem.

Prufrockstar (1647) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle thanks to douglas88! Clear reddish brown pour, ring of khaki head, minimal lacing. Surprising amount of chocolate; leather/tobacco, cherries, oak, vomit (in the best possible way). Lightly metallic at times. Moderately sweet with big lasting sour end. Overall: this is a real treat. I would think of this as being closer to a sour red/brown, but who knows - I get all confused by these dark sours.

fiulijn (16931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Tasting at Matt’s
Dark brown color with sparse head. Intense aroma of dark malts, moderately sour, but also with a dusty note. Good body strength, yet the carbonation keeps the mouthfeel lean; a bit chocolately, and wisely sour; the final is drier and just a bit astringent.
