Port barrel aged and on cask. Had at the mountain brewers festival. This was a highlight for me. Notes of plum, raisin, port, vanilla, dark stone fruits. A solid sour beer. Reminds me of Squatters Root Cellar or a Flanders red ale. Had many samples of this one. Loved it!

Hazy brown with a tan head. Taste is biscuity, tart and vinegar. Toasted malts and vinegar. A nice palate cleanser and good beer.

Draft. Murky brown color, brown head. Aroma of sour brown bread, dark fruit. Aroma has both sweet and sour notes, reminds me of a Flemish red. Weird.

On Tap @ Burger n’ Brew: Rich brown color with reddish tones and a thick head. Aroma is mostly malt with some spices evident. Taste is a smooth maltiness with cloves and a bit of hops to finish. A nice, rich winter ale.

Very good, and very basic for the style, some sweet fruity maltiness, really easy to drink, hoppiness comes through in the end. Not bad, but not my favorite.
