Bottle. Little Leeds Beer House. Label states 2014 project. 9.8%. Clear, dark ruby red. Thin, dense, lasting, sticky, light tan head. Looks good. Nose has stewed cherry. Cherry pie. Booze soaked wood. Sour cherry. Some vanilla. Light cinnamon spice. Some bitter chocolate notes. On top of all that, there’s a fusty, mouldy yeasty thing going on that sits just right. Taste has sweet and tart sourness in equal measure. A bit like like an old balsamic vinegar. Smooth palate. Light acidity. Lightly acidic, earthy, stone fruit finish. Very nice.

Bottle purchased at Red Apron/B Side. Poured a very dark brown color with a small, but long lasting tan head. Aroma was some very dark mild bourbon notes, which become stronger as it warms. Vinous notes are very prominent. Nice oud bruin character to this one.

March 12, 2016 - on tap at Rare Beer Fest held in the Minnesota History Center. Orangish red pour with limited head. Like the Noyaux, this was nicely balanced with the fruit, wood and wine, but also had a nice bourbon flavor mixed in. SirLimpsalot (4238) - SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2016

Had this on closing night of the Amsterdam Cafe in San Francisco...a casualty of Tenderloin gentrification. This beer was recommended to me by Bay Area beer guru, Douglas Smith, who like me, cut his teeth on wine. Feel extremely lucky to have heard his discourse on corks, bottle caps, and micro-oxidation at a bottle share with a Speakeasy Syndicate vertical. Needless to say, the recommendation more than panned out.
