UPDATED: SEP 16, 2011 Pouring at the Blind Tiger for Mike’s 50th birthday extravaganza. Had to throw this in as an edit due to putting my rating of Ithaca’s soured barrel aged version of this in the wrong spot. Problem now solved. Pours a light ruby and cola brown with a thin beige head. Malty, sweet, light soy sauce aromas. Sweet toast. Long pruney malt. Light booze, malt, more sweet malty soy sauce. deyholla (12038) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Sampled from the tap at NotB. Poured a cloudy copper amber with a brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma had a red wine tart note with some sweet grain, sweet bread and a bit of earthiness and a good amount of backing barrel. Flavor started with slightly sour red fruit with a growing sweet bread and grain note that leads in to a slightly dry finish with some backing barrel. blipp (9598) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 8, 2010

Deep brown amber pour with a thick tan head. The nose is spicy and fruity. Plummy with some nice Belgian yeast as well. Sweet and fruity with some raisiny/date sweetness. Sweet and a little bit woody. It tastes like the base of their Rejewvenator.

Draft at RnH with Andrew and Grandpop. Pours a dark brown body with no head. Aroma is sweet bourbon, oak, dark fruit, and sweet malt. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with great sweet bourbon notes of front and finishes with an interesting sour, tart twist. The geektoberfest title really through me off.

Aroma: It has a dry, somewhat wine-like, slightly sour nose, with a little wood and dark fruit
Appearance: This one poured a brown color with a small, lasting beige head and light lacing
Flavor: It has some Belgian yeast, a little funk, hints of wood, and some raisin/dark fruity flavors
Palate: The body is on the medium side, and though it feels a bit muddled, it drinks alright
I wasn’t particularly impressed by this one. I still found it to be decent, but mostly, I thought it was a bit too confused, and it just didn’t seem to have any real direction. I wouldn’t rush back.
