Bomber purchased at the brewpub. Deep brown with a good sized beige head. Aroma is of tart cherry, wood, plums, brown sugar, and vinous. Taste is of red wine, tart raspberries, cherry, blackberry, wood, vanilla, and quite tart. Dry and delicious. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2012
On draft for GABF 2012. Pours a dark brown color with red highlights and an off-white head. Nose is cherry, oak, tartness, red grapes, and vinous fruit. Flavor is similar: malt, vinous tartness, oak, cherries, and red grapes. Light to medium in body and very nice overall. crossovert (12874) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Nice sourness to go with the sweet port. A sweeter sour but not devoid of complexity. darker than I expected. daknole (11047) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Thirdeye11 on the GABF party bus! Dark brown pour, light brown head. Aroma of cherries, plums, leather, cocoa powder, lactic tartness, some light woody smells. Flavor is rich and full bodied, sour, cherries, wine barrels, red wine, sour grapes...fine brew! douglas88 (9174) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle share on the brewbus by Thirdeye11 I believe. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. The aroma is massive cherries, oak, caramel, candy, big barrel. A sweet favor with lots of tart elements, cherries, toasted malts, figs, some sweeter spirit (not sure what this was aged in), and lingering sour fruit. Very nice.

(Draught) Pours an opaque dark brown (near black) body with a small tan head. Aroma of vinous, caramel, cherry, cranberry, and minerals. Flavor of vinous, light sour cherries, caramel, earth, chocolate, and raisins. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2012
(draught) cloudy brown, medium tab head with fine bubbles. Nose of tart cranberry and other berries, cream, wet wood. Taste of tart cranberry, light raisin/fig, complex and tart. Medium body, tart linger, nice carbonation level. HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Tap flight at the brewery. Brown colored pour with a red hue and a medium lacing white head. Aroma of lightly aged balsamic vinegar and red wine vinegar. Taste is slightly sour but not at all funky or overpowering. Reminiscent of a less sweet Duchesse De Bourgone. Clean finish. A refreshing sour and good for noobs to the style. Bartender says this must have mellowed because it was really sour a month and a half ago. Well done. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2012
On tap at the brewpub.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of dark fruit and cherries, as well as some toffee malt. The flavor is quite funky, with some leather notes to go along with some barnyard funk. I also get some tart cherries and tart grapes, as well as a hint of sweetness from the toffee malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
