Amber red colour. Malty sweet aroma, some heavily caramelized crystal and toasted malt with a sweet cherry fruitiness and a spicy hop bouquet throughout. Pine and earthy/mildly resinous hops. Sweet malts up front balance with the strong hoppiness later on. A bit of honeyed character. Some pine and black pepper on the finish. Bacterial (3138) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2013
Dark pour, slight tan head. Big dark fruit nose, some caramel and vanilla. Very sweet, complex and interesting. Big fruits, plum and fig. Some heat mixed in there as well. Going to be hard to finish the entire bottle - be sure to share with some friends! suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Dark brown pour. More black. Small tan head. No lacing. Nice aroma of acetic sourness and molasses. Maybe too much molasses. Taste is the same with chocolate. A bit sour but way too much sweetness.

Bottle at a tasting at Beer&Beyond shop. Dark brown with a creamy head. Aroma - roasted malts, dark fruits, wood, some funky notes . Taste - sweet-sour, caramel, pomegranate, dried fruits, bourbon, wood. Interesting, though a bit messy. TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
650 mL bottle. Don’t know why I expected this one to be lighter coloured. It’s brown. Small brown head. Bizarre aroma has roast and funk up front. It actually smells like a bunch of different beers blended together. The sour hits you first, and you’re thinking, hey, this is pretty good. Then you get hit with all this other, sweeter stuff. Chocolate and all. Big in a weird, small way. Very, very interesting.

Bomber, cellared for about 1.5 years. Tart dark fruit aroma with some caramel, bourbon and a bit of rye. Pours dark brown with a thin light brown head with excellent lacing. Starts with rich dark fruit and caramel flavors. Finishes smooth with tart cherry flavor and a bit of vinegar. Good, but the finish is a little vinegary. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 23, 2013
22oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick dense light tan head. Aroma of toffee, vanilla, oak, citrus and fruity yeast esters. Flavor of oaky vanilla, fruity esters, cherries and mild cocoa. Medium to full body with a soft smooth mouth feel. Really good beer, unique blend of beers with a great barrel character. BroSpud (2323) - , Massachusetts, USA - APR 27, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with an off white head. Fruity, musty and definitely funky aroma. Very sweet, probably from the pomegrante, and malty with dark fruit flavors among so many other flavors that change as it warms. This is quite an interesting beer and one that will probably improve with age. Westchesterco (2293) - mclean, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Poured from a bottle it is a dark brown with a tan head with a funky wine aroma and tastes like very sour cherries
