Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a clear amber with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong oak, lacto, and dark fruits. Thin mouthfeel with strong lacto and oak with light dry sourness. Very good.

Growler and on tap at rare barrel. Deep reddish brown color. Tart fruity aroma, lactic. Palate is lightly sweet with some drier notes. Tart cherry, oak, funk, mineral, charred wood. Excellent beer, on par with the Russian river beers in my opinion.

On draft at the brewery. It pours very dark red with an off white head. The aroma is black currant, cherry and dark malts with a touch of oak. The flavor is very sour with cherries, grape skin and some mild vinegar, but not as much as most of their other beers. My favorite of the night.
