3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Figured it was time to pop the cork.
This was a bitch to open - required the lobster claw cracker to pull the cork - but it cam with a loud pop. Pours a brown ale with cherry hues and a good broken sheet of light cream foam. Smells of sweet balsamics, some brown sugar and some oak. There is the vinegar tone, indicating the tart quality, but the nose lacks depth for me. Flavor has a nice tartness, cherries, oak, hint of bourbon, slightly bitter, and a hint of sweetness. I like the balance in this one. Medium bodied with lower carb and a dry finish. Nice beer, the nose does not match the flavor, but it is a nice beer.
