Draught at SBWF. Hazy mahogany colour, mid sized head. Mild vinous tart nose. Near full bodied with well rounded mouthfeel. Acetic with some white pepper. Lemon, wood and red wine dominates. Lovely beer, but the Reserva is even better.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
