Bottle... Cloudy Longhorn-orange pour with no head. The aroma is stacked with yeast-driven spiciness, some maltiness and a decent element of stone-fruitiness. Full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is tart, malty and fruity, although theres less fruitiness and sourness than I was hoping for. At least there is some slight cognac warmth. Finishes tart, raspy and dry. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

adnielsen (10573) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2014
On tap @ the release party @ Crooked Staves Source location. Somewhat hazy reddish brown appearance with a thin, disappearing tan head. Aroma has a bunch of plum / dark berry / dark grape fruits. Some tannic notes also present and actually a fair amount of roast / toffee / caramel / burnt malt. The flavor is moderately tart. Black cherry / dark grape notes are pretty apparent. Some woody / leathery notes. Light acetic acid. Finishes pretty smooth. Pretty fun brew and definitely easy to drink.

phaleslu (9705) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Pour from a 750 ml bottle at The Party Source/Ei8ht Ball. Pours a cloudy brown-amber with a tiny off-white head that quickly settles into a ring. Notes of sour cherry, brown sugar, oak, toast, balsamic vinegar, tannins, sour mash, cognac, and sweet and sour candy. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sour mouthfeel that is balanced by some sweetness and toastiness. Finishes drier than expected. Very nice take on the style.
