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.

Ratman197 (9948) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2011

GT2 (8507) - 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.

j12601 (6607) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2011
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.

egajdzis (5364) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2012
Murky brown with a small, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, cherry, wine, and light smoke. Taste of cherry, cocoa, roast, wild yeast, wine, and a tart finish.

Thorpe429 (5011) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2012
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.

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.
