4/8/2016 -- from backlog notes: 750ml. Bottled 2/20/2013. Dark fruit, some nutty, chocolate, mild leather, earth. Not much in the way of aroma from the barrel it seems, but definitely some warmth to this. Thinner than expected in body for 11%, though kind of slick texture. Interesting one to try a smaller bit of. Desverger (17716) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2016

, Copenhagen - murky brown pour with almost no head. Sour malty and fruity, notes of vinegar, wood, grapes, high acidity into the finish.

Bottle courtesy of elliesbrown. Cheers, Zack! Pours brown-Amber with a teeny off-white head. Nose is brandy, malt, vinegar, funk, barnyard Brett, and some oak. Flavor is similar with malt, vinegar, balsamic, funk, barnyard, and some lingering brandy. Light in body, ok with some age, and nice overall. egajdzis (7454) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Hazy brown color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, lacto, wood, apples, and light alcohol. Taste of dark fruits, grapes, apple, caramel, wood, and some tartness. Slight alcohol burn. phaleslu (12120) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2016
750 ml bottle shared by jmborggren - thanks again, Jeremy! Bottled 2/20/13. Pours a cloudy amber with minimal off-white head that settles into a thin ring. A bit oxidized, with wood, caramel, candy apples, brown sugar, cardboard, brandy, plums, and berries. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, tangy mouthfeel. Grew on me. Gets bigger, more balanced, and tastier over time.

Bottle at Wtf 2. Pours a dark brown with small off white head. The aroma is cherry, vanilla, oak. Thin mouth, tart cherry, wood, leather, vinous, very good. arminjewell (9758) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Pour out of bottle, dark brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, caramel, hints of some apple, brandy notes into a bit of tart lemon, some oak, some dark fruits into a bit of grape, wine notes. Taste was a mix of oak, grape, apple brandy into a bit of tart lemon, slight funk, touch of caramel, toffee, finishing slightly tart. A bit too much for me. burg326 (5779) - Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Poured a dark brown color with aromas of light funk, some sweet apple brandy, dark fruit and light caramel. Flavors matched the aromas with just the right amount of sourness that blended all the flavors nicely. Abv is hidden as well. hopscotch (11759) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle... Pours murky and brown with a fleeting, white head. Smells like a malty, fruity duet of caramel and grape Kool-Aid. Full-bodied with modest carbonation. Tastes like grape Kool-Aid – tart, fruity and sweet in both the flavor and aftertaste. Bottle courtesy of ctipping! jrob21 (4326) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Finally opened this after holding on to it for the right person to share it with. Nice aroma with lots of earth and wood. Light on the sour specturm Good dark fruits and cherry. Pretty subtle on the palate. Lightly sour but still good and relatively complex. The 11% is definitely hidden.
