3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters showing a coppery/mahogany color, with a persistent layer of bubbly, tan head foam, and clingy dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was tart & sour with expressive esters as dark cherry & concord grape, and touches of wood and funkiness. Medium+ bodied, with lively carbonation, the taste was similar, full flavored notes, complementary warming, but non-boozy alcohol influence, with some vinous characteristics adding to the complexity. Very nice!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. Not one that I enjoyed on the evening. The pour is a dark amber/light brown color with an egg shell colored head that dissipates to a film rather quickly. The aroma is spicy. Lots of cinnamon with a weird sourness and a hefty dose of bourbon, that comes off like acetone. The flavor is, if even possible, more heavy on the bourbon with a sourness coming on the way back with a touch of lemon. The mouth feel is thin, light, no real heavy carbonation, and the flavors disappear quickly. The aftertaste is booze and a light sour. Should’ve enjoyed this one earlier in the night

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of sourness, some bourbon and oak, caramel malts, hints of dark fruits, and some light notes of acetone. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A solid beer but it’d be phenomenal if the light acetone was removed.

Thanks cards04 for this sample. Maroon colour. Great sour and grain aroma. So sour it bites in the nostrils. Tate is sour fruity lactose grain. I detected something a little off but not off. It was the bourbon which is subtle and effective. Smooth palate.
