22 oz bomber. Deep brown with a large tan head. Aroma is of blackberry pie, oak, bourbon, light funk, prune, clove and spiced cake. Taste is of tart dried cherries, oak, whiskey, vanilla, acetic, heavy tannins, and berries. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle. Big foamer of a beige head. The look is reddish garnet wine like. The smell is wine, funk, wood, hay, whiskey, fruit cobbler, and leathery. The taste is similar with tartness, tangy, hops, fruits. onceblind (10095) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Deep dark brown hue under a foamy beige head. Lovely nose that’s deeply complex, a bit roasty and woodsy and whiskeyed, with a little cherry fruity sourness underneath it. Bright tart flavor at the start with a bit of wild funk and berries, with dark malt roasty sweetness, whiskey, oak, and a fruity dark malt finish that’s slightly funky sour.

Deep "groovy" brown body has auburn-mahogany highlights and a quickly receding, off-white head. High clarity.
The acetic acid is strong in this one. Lots of cherry, raspberry, strawberry-like esters with light balsamic character and a vanilla-caramel maltiness that is seemingly fairly well-attenuated. Pretty aggressive, with some light alcohol heat/vapors and not much going on other than an assault of sour acids and light wood.
Very sour in the mouth with cherry-like notes, strong wood and lingering heavy acetic acid. Oaky, caramel-laden notes intensify the beer, as well, and it’s lightly boozey with too much sweetness on the end as well. Peppery carbonation and a slick texture. Well, if you love acetic acid....
bomber from AFH, foamed quite a bit. dark brown appearance. Looks great with a 2 finger dark white-ish head. Smells very oaky, tannic, raspberry, blueberry and peach. Very light tartness, funk that starts and ends around the middle leaving a cherry pie flavor. i think I’ve enjoyed every vintage of these. Reminds me of Melange 11 but on the lighter side.

Cellared in my cellar since purchase. Small slow gusher upon opening.Black in color liquid. The aroma is very acidic with sour grapes and funky Oak. The flavor is dominant and funky oak, mild red grape, acidic aftertaste. Finn and body without any character. To be fair I don’t really like the style at all .... I purchased this on a whim.

Bottle. Poured clear dark brown with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and sour aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted malt complex sour flavor with a medium to heavy complex sour & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer also exceeded my expectations. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2016
