TheCametron (2112) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark, mahogany red with a short lived tan head. Yeast and berries on the nose with one synapse of the brain leading off with imperial stout whisky aged agedness. The flavour is tart, winey and full of dark fruit sweetness. It’s sour and nicely carbonated with a flavour reminiscent of some kind of Haribo. Finish is tart then tangy. Interesting and flavoursome.

czar (5666) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2013
pours medium dark brown with a small light beige head, some retention. nice fruity and toasted nutty malts, marshmallowed bananas, spices, vanilla, toasted candi, bit of cheese, low acetic, shy winey notes, pinch of cocoa powder. average carbonation, light to medium body, lightly acidic and grassy-peppery finish. enjoyed it for sure but it fell just a bit short, sort of.

mcberko (9323) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2013
On tap at Stumbling Monk, pours an opaque dark mahogany with a large beige head. Aroma brings out dark soured fruits, some vinegar, and some oak barrels. Flavour is supremely complex, with loads of soured dark fruits, moderate vinegar, oak, and subtle vanilla notes. Amazingly well-balanced, with a perfect sourness, woodiness and oakiness.

JohnnyJ (4908) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Draft at churchills. Pours a dark brown, with red tinge and a thin light tan head. Aroma is very oaky, with some dark fruit and caramel. Flavor also has a lot of barrel character, oak, dates, fig, light vanilla, some oxidation, caramel malt, bourbon barrel, and mild sourness. Interesting beer, pretty good, but I don’t think I would buy it again.

Tap. Dark red/brown pour. Dry oak aroma. Taste is leather, red wine, light tart, bitterness, and oak. Smooth mouthfeel. Okay.

Bottle sample at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Pours dark brown with a beige head, aroma of malt, chocolate, honey and wood, flavor is sourish, a bit bizarre with chocolate, wood, pickles juice, medium bodied

Very dark red - brown beer. Short lived pale tan head. Palate is dry and crisp. Sour, but not overly so. It’s notably Flanders Red sour, the tangy red wine barrel adds to it but it’s then rounded off by the oak and mildly sweet bourbon. Well buried chocolate. Dry finish. Somehow isn’t quite as good as it looks on paper but certainly tasty.

solidfunk (5254) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Awesome beer. Lots of sour apricot, plum and some booze. Pours dark brown with only a little initial head or lacing. Light sour finish. Comes together super well. On tap at Ebenezer Kezar’s.
