COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer sat quietly, aging in our barrel room for over a year before we decided it was time - time to blend in some beautiful ripe red grapes, Brettanomyces, freshly emptied wine barrels and time, this beer is infinitely complex and a challenge to the perception of what beer can be. This beer is re-fermented in the bottle and will age for years to come. Straight from the Captain’s cellar to yours, we hope you enjoy.

Murky darker brown. Aroma is milk chocolate, some sour berries, also lemon. Fits together better than it sounds. Taste is incredibly sour, creeps into your tongue and stays there. Well the finish is enjoyable but the immediate touch is too harsh for me.

Nickls (2608) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Tap. Foamy light tan head, ruby murky brown. Sour dark cherries, oak, light toffee, some mineral, and dark sweet grapes in the aroma and a soft balsamic sourness. Flavor is sour but really well balanced, oaky and a touch dry, sour dark cherries again and a bit vinous. Lighter body with tight carbonation. Nice.
