Bottle at home and pours at WTF. Pours with a hazy brown to deep bronze hue with a small tan head that fades. Aromas are of funk, dark fruit, raisins, currants, very vinous, brandy, earthy leather and light chocolate. Moderate tannins, some brightness, cherries. Flavors are floral, fruity and funky brett, almost a touch tropical, mejool dates, medium sourness, floral, a touch raspy on the back of the throat. Lots of barrel. Good funk, vinous, rich. Fuller carbonation, pretty dry, puckering, tannins. Enjoyable!

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draft on tap at The Source (Denver, CO). Pours a deep dark brown hue, some blackish depth with just a hint of ruby glow. Cakey frothy tannish head atop. Good stick around, lacing is ok and pretty. Aromas are a bit deep and dark, cherry, oak some carmelized malts. Gentle toast, spice and faint smokiness. Some funky brett, farmhouse and straw. Initial is a bit deadened, toasty and carmelized. Some sour dark fruit, black cherry and oak. Some earth, funk, and more oak. Firm wood influence, gentle spice. Middle is a bit more funky, brett and cobwebs with oak, basement and house yeast spice. Backend is a bit more tart but some bitterness comes in, earth and gentle sourness tapers out, tannic oak. Ok, a bit funky, the sourness never rally asserts with some solid red fruit influence. Nose a bit deadened.

Similar flavor, sour, tart, funky, woody and fruity with a light puckering feel. Medium body with a lingering finish. Dank.
