GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2011
On tap at Fergie’s 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 you’re picking up at the time it’s either and both. Dark fruits, smoke, yeast, floral notes and some citrus. It’s all there. Rich texture and a long, boozy, dry yet still crisp finish. Best beer find for me during Beer Week.

egajdzis (5299) - 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.

Draft. Dark pour with a small fizzy foamy head. Notes of dark cocoa. Wet leather. Cigar. Brandied sour cherry. Feels burnt dark and juicy at the same time. Bitter smoked dark chocolate cherry cordial.

Damico (2553) - 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.

oOJUXEOo (271) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2011
On tap at Local 44. First glance it looks like a stout or porter. Has a tan head, rich brown in color below that. Aroma is wine, brett, fruit. Taste is sour of course with some light toasted malt shining through. Very nice beer.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 10, 2011
On tap at Teresa’s. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that sticks around for a bit. Not much lacing. It certainly looks like a porter. It certainly doesn’t smell like a porter though. Light brett funkiness, light cherry, some roasted notes, and a little bit of the red wine come through. Initial taste is a lacto tartness with a little bit of cherry. Some roasted notes from the base beer then come through as well as some of the red wine and oak. The finish has a decent tartness. Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation. Pretty good beer overall. Certainly unique. I wouldn’t describe it as sour, but a tartness is present throughout.

j12601 (6584) - 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.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2011
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.
