On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a bit of lacing. The nose has roast underlying some vinous notes and a light lactic acidity. Some cherry and light dark fruits. Flavor is roasty with a moderate lactic sourness. Red wine underneath as well as some oak. Medium body. Dry, sour finish. Interesting and good, but without the complexity of many Russian River sours. This probably could have used some more time in the barrel.

Travlr (11812) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Draft. Extremely dark but clear maroon, small tan edge head, solid lacing. Aroma of spiced and slightly sour Christmas fruitcake. You never really eat those, do you? I donít either. Taste of very softly sour prunes, raisins. Could be a tad more sour.

GT2 (8430) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Tap at CK. Deep ruby pour looking near black. Small, thin layer of foam. Nose is toffee, mild butter/diacetyl. Taste is tangy, barely sour, more just "tart". Dry, tannic, red wine finish with big barrel flavor. RR Consecration barrels? Small lactic and citric acid in the finish with refreshing saltwater. Very good overall despite the seeming off character in the nose.

patrickfannon (1240) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Glass at the RR/SN dinner at Monkís. Pours dark chicory, almost black, with a wispy, espresso head. Aroma of wet basement, dog sweat, briney sea air, dark chocolate, pinot noir, tobacco, and some slight oakiness. Light bodied, sort of tangy palate, and tastes very much like tart coffee with some salt in it. Not a big fan of this one. Alright.
