Bottle. Pale reddish-brown colour, slight head which disappears quickly. Fruity and sour. Not overpowering. dnstone (4067) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 31, 2018
Light, clear copper color with strong off white head. Balsamic vinegar aroma. Tart balsamic and bubblegum character. This one is prob better than I rated it, but I didn’t care much for it.

375ml bottle. Poured an amber color with a small sized head. Funk, wood, some pinot, caramel, cherries, and some tartness. I'm a fan of Crux. Oakes (19697) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2017
Muddy light brown, thin head. Lots of sweet whisky on the nose, maybe some bugs and definitely some wood. Strong, sweet, lots of boozy whisky notes, and woody brandy. Bit too yeasty for its own good.

Cloudy light amber color. Prominent acidity, also prominent acetone, some fruits, some perfume from the hands of the bartender too.
Sample at What The Funk!? on 10/04/2017. The beer is a cloudy reddish-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of tart fruit, oak, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of vinous oak, red fruits, yeast and biscuit malt. The finish is oaky with a fruit and yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

The Second Beer of my #6000 celebration (#2 of 13 - six beers on either side of 6000 and the milestone itself). Perfect ruby coloured body with a great pink coloured tint and a great, three centimetre tall tan head that stays afloat for quite a while. Aroma of cherries, raspberries, dry oak, a touch of alcohol, toffee, caramel, cognac and a little dose of hops, but the cherries and oak are the strongest by far - very nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive cherry and dry oak flavours with some cedar, a little grain and a hint of caster sugar near the tail end. Aftertaste is rich and fruity with a lot of very dry and almost musty flavours near the finish that also show a touch of alcohol. Overall, a nice and robust beer with a nice fruitiness, but better dry oaky and complex woodsey finish. Great to finally sample and well worth trying, if you can find this - and also possibly worth considering aging a bottle or two, depending on the price (on the higher side). I sampled this, wax, capped AND corked 37,5 cL bottle purchased from Total Beverage in Thornton, Colorado on 15-March-2016 for US$12,99 sampled almost exactly a year later on 05-March-2017. 2015 Bottle, Date of Bottling: 17-June-2015.

Bottle in Encinitas with Bri. Pours reddish brown, light spicy/peppery and tartness, and LOTS of oak and red wine dominating the taste. A very nice take on the style. Not super complex but the heavy wine taste is interesting.
