hopscotch (9242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours murky and brown with a small, creamy, well-tanned head. The flavor is bready, acidic and acetic - offering notes of tart cherries and sweet caramel. Medium-bodied and creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor offers sour cherries, caramel and a slight splash of red wine vinegar. Tangy, minerally finish. Pleasantly surprised by this world class concoction!

TheHOFF43 (1756) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle from Bacterial, from StFun. Pours a light brown with beige head. Tart nose, some wood characteristics. Taste is lacking bourbon, I wonder if it aged itself out since this is an older bottle? Subtle tartness, nice barrel.

Bottle shared at LeviLOL tasting - thanks me! Actually thanks to StFun! Really nice. Light brown pour with a tan head. Bourbon and slightly tart nose. Really nice taste - great balance between barrel character and just a touch of sour. Well done, mellow but lots of character.
