trapped (784) - New York City, TURKEY - SEP 17, 2014
Drought. Inky black with miniscule beige foamy head that dissipated quickly, soir cherry-coffee-bourbon aroma, pleasanty sour taste with bourbon at the background, low carbonation, medium finish with sour aftertaste. Very refreshing and easy to drink despite the alcohol content.

teromous (55) - - SEP 11, 2014
My bottle says 2014 edition and says 8% ABV. Appearance: Very dark brown with some hints of mahogany as light passes through. Slim white head and no lacing. Aroma: Here is a very familiar scent of tart smelling cherries, musky shed and mildew on wood. It is exactly what I would expect from a beer like this. Taste: EXTREMELY tart to the point where it makes me cough a bit. I get some tart cranberry and crabapple. Palate: Very dry, very tart. Extremely puckering and fairly hard to enjoy a whole bomber. Overall: This really is a good beer but I would highly recommend sharing this. It is a treat albeit very, very overly tart. I sincerely enjoyed this beer but I wish they would sell it in mini-bottles. I wouldn’t buy a bomber again unless it was for a much larger party. This has a very sour wine-like (not spoiled) quality about it.

Tortman18 (188) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Very dark, opaque brown/ruby, with a thin cap of off-white head. Lacing was very wet. Aroma is very tart and sugary with hints of cherry, lemon zest, grapefruit, caramel and red wine. The taste is like a lemon warhead. Very tart and dry with a lot of caramel, cherry and red wine. The finish was very dry and became eve more tart as it lingered.

RedSox2004 (1253) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Dark, opaque ruby red with a one-finger off-white head, good retention and slippery lacing. Aromas of red wine grapes, oak, black cherries, tobacco leaves, leather and alcohol, all of which create a sense of strong sourness. Taste is all tartness, strong but clean, with notes of red wine, unlit cigars, oak, vanilla and berries. Medium-bodied, high carbonation, prickly and puckering mouthfeel, and a very nice tart finish.

Pours deep mahogany to cherry red. Very little head but no problem there. Huge wine and fruit nose. Big tartness up front with a wine and slight funk. Effrevescent and a really nice tart finish. Great beer!
