Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton FL. Snifter pour. A rather dark, very hazy pour with thick fluffy white head. Head lasted awhile and some moderate lacing. Aroma was all over the place...bourbon barrel, rye, spices, fruits, leather, wood. The taste was similar and all over the place. I couldn’t really get more than serious barrel, rye, heavy malts, spices/herbs, and some fruit. I didn’t get the tartness some are referring to below. Not sure if i need this one again.

I think some of us who have tried this beer got one that just didn’t age well. I’ve seen a few reviews mentioning "sour cherry" and "very tart". I got one like you guys. It’s like drinking carbonated, unsweetened cherry juice. I love cherry juice, but with the beer aspects just barely in the background, it just doesn’t work for me. Oh well, it happens every once in a while.

Pours deep mahogany into a snifter. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet bourbon, vanilla, pomegranate and rye aromas. Thick with hot caramel and pit fruit upfront turning to a warming chocolate and pomegranate finish.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma very oaky, touch sour, cherries. Tart, oak, malty but not very heavy. . . really enjoyable. Unusual but very good.

(tap) clear dark brown colour with a small brown head; aromas of wet wood, dried fruit; rich, well balanced flavour with well hidden alcohol, very nice

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Draft at Moriartys. Pitch black pour that started with a tight white head that mostly disappeared. Big swath of flavors. Coffee and chocolate definitely, but deep dark fruit seems most prevalent. Blunt sour funk surrounding notes of dried blueberries, strawberries and blackberries. Raisins, dates and prunes as well but, to me, the berry flavors are stronger. Some ash and spice as well. Thick body nearly coats the tongue. The bitters balance out the sugars. Big like a Stout, but style-wise very different. Feels like a chewy malt Port cordial.

Pours black out of bottle. No real head or lacing. Wow totally not what i was expecting. Has aroma of funk and cherry. Taste is sour cherry. I hate it and like it at the same time.

Dark black in color... Aroma of coffee, funk, tartness... Flavor is huge... Coffee, chocolate are extremely prevalent and balance the tartness... Amazing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Treat after my first dose of radiation. Deep, dark, almost black but red, like super dark cherry juice. It also has a bit of a dark cherry nose, and at first sip I get some of it too. Quite fizzy. Tart to its core, this has quite a bit going on ... with hints of an almost gin-like sting. Funky, indeed! (#5425, 2/5/2014)

Poured from 12 oz bottle bottling date is 2/8/2013 into snifter. This was part of the holiday pack. Pours a dark brown color with maybe 1 finger head if you pour hard; head is dark khaki colored and leaves very little lacing. Aroma - dominant aroma is sourness and funk, underneath there’s a little chocolate. Taste is very sour (which I like) - sourness is very reminiscent of 100% cranberry juice, there’s a little sweetness, and some dark malt bitterness underneath as well as a bit of rye. If you lick your lips after a drink, you taste the sourness again and it lingers. Finish is quite long and tart. I like sours a lot, but this is very very sour and probably won’t be for everyone.
