mcberko (6692) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
500mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with an amber tinge and a small beige head. Aroma is complex, with notes of cherries, funky notes, light tartness, and miscellaneous dark fruits. Flavour is tart and dry, with red notes, medium brett funk, and light acidity. Quite vinous, with loads of red wine and moderate brett on the finish. Elegant stuff. Finishes rather acidic.

Ferris (4472) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle - Sour cherry and dark malts with some oak notes. Deep mahogany with a decent brown head. Rich malty and sour tart cherry. Simple, but underlying complexity and nice to drink

Leighton (11299) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle shared in London during the CBC 2nd birthday. Thanks, Paige! Pours cloudy red-brown with an off-white froth cap. Leathery fruits in the nose, moderate funky accents. Medium sweet flavor with good tangy fruits, further leather, touches of earth. Lightly acidic with tangy fruits. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Tangy finish, some sour berries, chewy leather. Lovely beer.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. The nose is a mélange of cherry, oak and red wine. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and laid-back carbonation. Tastes a lot like the Guillemot Nebula, but there’s more cherry in the nose and flavor here. Tangy, lightly roasty finish. Bottle provided by landhoney!

AdamJackson (2689) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Acquired in a trade. Thanks Tooch! No idea why mine is totally covered in red wax but whatever.

A - Pours a reddish amber brown out of the bottle. almost pitch black in the glass. Mild carbonation forms and resides.

S - Nose is pretty interesting. Obviously sour fruits dominate. Lots of oak. Biscuit and cinnamon notes and vanilla bean. Acidity that levels on fresh espresso.

T - The whiskey comes through very strong in taste. This is quite nice! It’s sweet, dry and cloying all at once. Lovely tart blackberry / cherry mix. The whiskey is solid leaving behind wood, vanilla and cereal. The fruit & whiskey is blended in no way I’ve ever had before. Really solid beer.

M - Silky smooth with coffee & berry acidity throughout. Slick almost and not overpowering.

O - Low ratings so far makes me think this one isn’t a large bottling run but I’m glad to have tried it.

Sarlacc83 (772) - Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle from Jim. Thanks! A: Dark black with an off-creme head. Good legs. N: Lactic acid, lemon zest, grapefruit, banana, horse blanket, some touches of coffee, cocoa, and plenty of oak. T: Very sour with an element of bitterness. Oak is prevalent, and there’s a touch of whiskey sweetness. M: Light and chipper. Graceful comes to mind. O: Complex and elicious. Would definitely have this if it came across my path a second time.

illidurit (2157) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Thanks to Michael for this one. Awesome aroma, strawberry/cherry cobbler, scones. Solid tart Flemish overtones but there’s more to this one. Oaky and leathery, windfallen cherries mixing with earth, lactic acid, tannins.
