Damico (2524) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2012
Pours dark unclear with a small caramel head. The aroma is light tart roasted malts. The flavor brings smooth sour roasted malts as well. There is a basis of cherry notes more on flavor than aroma that come from the wine barrels and give integral flavors.

Draught at TND: Aroma of funk, oak, cherries, slight acetic acid, slight malt, and a hint of barnyard. Poured dark brown/ruby in color with a small, creamy, dense, tan/brown head that lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of Bourbon, oak, vanilla, coconut, slight malt, slight tart cherry, slight Brett, slight acid, and a touch of roasting. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Funk, oak, light Bourbon, slight acetic acid, slight coconut, light vanilla, slight malt finish is a tad dry.

Pouring at the Night of the Funk in Boston. Pours a deep black with a medium to large beiged tan head. Roast, soft acid, light candied fruit. Soft acid and a touch of nuttiness. Cool and smooth, roast and malt. Faintest hints of cocoa, more cool roast and acid. Very nice. Different and pleasantly surprising.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2011
On tap at Fergieís Pub in Philly during Philly Beer Week. Wow - this is hard to put your finger on. Huge nose of red wine and oak. Is it a beer or a wine? Depending on what youíre picking up at the time itís either and both. Dark fruits, smoke, yeast, floral notes and some citrus. Itís all there. Rich texture and a long, boozy, dry yet still crisp finish. Best beer find for me during Beer Week.

Tap at London grill. Dark brown pour with a thin beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, nut, fruit and vanilla. Taste of roast, wood, fruit and vanilla that finishes sweet and tart. A good brew.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Draft at London. Pours a very dark brown color thatís completely opaque with dark golden mahogany edges and a one finger off white head that immediately fades into a thin lasting ring. Sweet vinous aroma with subtle earthy funk, dry brett and subtle acetic vinegar. Strong barrel presence with lots of oak and red wine character. Slight vanilla with lots of red grape, dark cherry and other berries. Faint malt presence. Sweet and slightly tart/puckering up front with some light funk. Sweet vinegar acetic acid is very mild. Bursting with red wine flavor. Lots of grape, dark cherry and other dark berries. Slightly dry with a roasted malt backbone thatís more prominent than in nose. Lots of oak too. Dry toasted wood and subtle sourness kind of clash with the roasted bitterness. I admire the effort but this one didnít really suit my tastes.
