Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Josh! Clear ruby red pour with thin to no head, aroma has notes of vinegar, lemon, hints of caramel, toffee, touch of red ripe fruit with some cherry, touch of alcohol and vanilla notes as well, touch of honey. Taste is a nice mix of bourbon, vanilla, some vinegar and lemon notes, touch of bread, hints of caramel, slight red ripe fruits with a hint of bourbon, finishing fairly sweet, slightly sour and dry. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Hazy amber in color with a tall off-white head and high carbonation. An interesting nose. Raspberry, lemon, grass, and leather. A bit of oak and red wine vinegar, maybe some alcohol. The flavor is somewhat acetic and extremely dry. Lots of leather and oak, a bit of grass/straw, and some red wine vinegar. Lightly fruity with some lemon zest and berry notes. As with the nose, a little bit of alcohol heat. Just okay in my book. dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle. Some talk about the high price but its worth it. Poured a murky brown color with a smaller white head. Aroma was fruits, sour notes, very malty and funky. Flavor was very sour. I loved the fruits and spice that balanced with the funk and sour notes. Sour, sour finish. Amazing beer

Reddish color with an offwhite head. Aroma of cherries steeped in an old balsamic vinegar and some new leather shoes. Flavor is lightly sour, some of the leather comes through in the flavor and some cherries as well. travisf (10) - - AUG 5, 2012
Wow was this sour!!!! I didn't get much funk, but wow was it sour. This was a 25 bottle. It was nice to try, but I wouldn't pay that kind of money for it again.

Bottle. I hope it tastes better than the description: olives and leather?!?! Dirty red-copper with minimal head. Strong wine-vinegar aroma. Tastes like the description. Not sure that I have ever tasted pickles or olives in a beer. Cool malt undertones but sensing that the emperor is a little underdressed. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUL 29, 2012
