OLD GABF rating. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma of vanilla and caramel, citrus, and bourbon. It tastes wine like though despite the look and its roasty caramel, vanilla flavors. The vinous character comes with cherry, lacto, and lighter citrus, and grapes all covered up in bourbon. YES!
Incredible flavour profile. On tap at Birreria Volo. Bold taste, spices, bourbon. It all works. Academy award of a top and unique beer. Full mouthfeel. portableparty (2380) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2017
On tap at Bricks in Blaine. Pours black brown with a tight quick khaki head that leaves a thin film. Aroma is sour fruit and malt with bourbon showing itself. Taste is sour acidic fruit rotten and malt try’s to balance it out with more bourbon presence. Palate is medium mouthwatering and dry. Good interesting beer. mansquito (6815) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2017

750ml corked bottle, 2011 project. Sweet dark fruit aroma with notes of red wine, roasted malt, bourbon, chocolate and oak. Pours dark caramel colored with a thin light brown head that has no retention or lacing. Starts with sweet dark fruit, chocolate, roasted malt and a bit of spice with a full mouthfeel and a still lively mouthfeel. Finishes dry and smooth with bourbon, oak and lots of red wine flavor and character. Complex and hides the booze excellently. Wonderful!

Taster at McLadden’s Northampton. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves trace lacing. Lots of fruit and tart notes on the nose. Lots of sour action on the tongue which seems really fruity though there’s some bourbon and chocolate on the edges. It’s doesn’t seem like it’s anywhere near a 12 percenter.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 I dont know how someone can’t enjoy this beer. Really by far the best sour I have ever had. Nice is light barrel light brett. Aroma dark fruit grape juice some very light funk. Tart on the tongue but still balanced. Nice head that fades. Taste is all over the place. Fruity sour sweet light barrel. If you can pull ever flavor out of this beer you now can rate ever sour and imperial stout out there. Porter? Well I guess not very hoppy. But really amazing. Wow Incredible!
