Pailhead (6495) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of cherries (sweet and lightly tart), light lemon,apple, cola, caramel, vanilla, fruit, and faint whiskey. It pours a dark brown with an orange glow around the edges of the glass. It has a one finger beige head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is minimal lacing. The flavor starts with quick dose of light chocolate and fruit. The finish has moderate-heavy sweet and tart cherry, a touch of lemon, apple, faint vanilla, a touch of whiskey/bourbon, and oak. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, I’m not sure this was intentional, but it comes across as a decent dark sour.

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)

22 oz. bottle Batch 2, bottled on 2/18/2013. Dark, muddy brown black color with a small layer of white head without retention in the snifter. Aroma is interesting. Light funky berries, dull whiskey with wood barrel. The flavor get even better.

Flavor starts with black berries and slightly tart through the center of the sip. The tart berry is smoothed out by subtle whiskey and oak wood. The body is leaning on the full with a soft creamy texture. This flavor is really interesting and I had to read the label and the pomegranate now makes a lot of sense in the flavor. It is extremely easy to drink and I have to remind myself not to chug this like "Pom" juice aged in whiskey barrels. Overall, the layer of depth and complexity took my completely off guard. Jeez, this is nice.

Beerman6686 (6435) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Poured a murky lighter brown with a white head. Aroma was of caramel, dark fruits, and light Brett. Dark fruit and light lactic fatness actually kind of work together here.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruits. This one is interesting. Plenty of sourness along side the oaky barrel aged flavors. Does not really work for me. But not a drain pour either.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate, roasted malt, oak, maple and some dark fruit. The flavor is equally complex. I get quite a bit of tart dark fruit (mainly cherries and grapes) as well as some roasted malt and chocolate. The oak also comes through in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

TheBeerGod (6070) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. Batch No. 2/Cases 1492. Bottling date 2/18/2013. Opaque murky, mahogany pour with a tall, dense brown head. Aroma is sweet and loaded with caramel but with an underlying spicy rye note and sour fruit. Taste combines tart fruit, spicy ye, chewy caramel, vanilla, light molasses, brown sugar and soft woody notes and blurs them with the sour fruitiness coming out on the back end while the sweetness and woody notes are up front. The boozy notes from the barrel aging treatment are mellow but constant throughout. Body is medium and slightly chewy up front but rapidly changes to dry and tart during the finish. The carbonation is soft and there is stickiness galore as well as mild warmth. Ends with more sour fruit notes, funky yeast, chewy caramel, brown sugar, light vanilla, booze and soft wood notes. Nice!

22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 6/12/15, Batch #2, Bottled 2/18/13
Press a dark brown color with a slight orange hue and a small head. The aroma is sweet, dark malts, some bozzy notes, chocolate, and funk. Tastes rather funky and a little sweet. Medium-full body, average carbonation. Decent, but maybe a bit too much going on.

thornecb (5616) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2014
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.

mansquito (5596) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2013
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is bourbon, cherry, sour funk, and a bit of hops. Taste is straight strange. It seems like a Flemish red at first, but very quickly turns into something stranger once the whiskey and malt flavors start to kick in. Good balance, but still obviously a combination of a whole lot of different beers.
