5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle:   Deep deep brown, dark brown hues, thin sudsy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Hmmm, slight Sour Red/Brown like funky sourness on the nose.   Sweet fruity sourness on the tongue.   This really is like a soft Sour Red/Brown.   I do not think this is what was intended at all.   Not sour per say, but very tart.   Underlying fruitiness, both light and dark.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Very light barrel aging on the finish.   Somewhat of a weird beer, a light Sour Red/Brown that seems barrel aged.   Four months old and it does this?   Strange...

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!

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. blutt59 (6562) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2013
bottled, thanks to bu11zeye, dark brown pour , really nice mix of red wine and malty chocolate, just the right amount of sourness Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, 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.

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.
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. TheBeerGod (6209) - 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! Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2013
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. thornecb (5880) - 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.
