UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Bottle dated 2/18/2013. Batch No. 2. Bottle neck label says "L’chaim sucka" so you know you are in for some fun. Pours deep dark brown with a dark kahki brown head. Smell is crazy. A combination of sour beer and chocolate, with something that reminds me if wine. Smells sweet with some citrus. Bit if the rye whiskey and oak on the nose, too. flavor is sweet up front with chocolate and lots of molasses. Fades into sweet black cherries and sour vinegar. Rye whiskey is present but it is not too boozy. Sweet lingering aftertaste on the palate. Like a slightly sour cherry cordial. Pretty heavy beer, with low-to-medium carbonation. Had no clue what to expect with this, but it actually turned out rather nicely. No single word to describe this. It is certainly funky. Share the bomber, just too much sweet for one.

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. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2013 The aroma is complex to say the least! Dark fruit, caramel, malts, cherries, - rich and inviting. Pours a soft black with a mostly diminishing dark tan head and lacing around the ring. The taste is very sweet. Cherries, prunes, vanilla, caramel. Medium to ful body with soft carbonation. Syrupy smooth mouthfeel. Overall, after the enticing aroma, I was disappointed by how overly sweet and syrupy this beer was. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Surprisingly works! Nice sweetness. Some bourbony infusion. And funk on top, but in a complimentary way. This is the type of sour I like.

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.

Danish pour at VA Wine Experience tasting. Pours dark brown. Funky dark fruit aroma. Taste is stone fruits, booze, roasted malts. Surprisingly drinkable. OmegaX (1375) - Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Awesome stuff. On tap at Oblivion. Nose is big pomegranate, bourbon, vanilla, toffee, molasses, and chocolate/roast. This beer is almost chewy. Thick, black, motor oil pour. Taste follows up like the aroma. Big time red/dark fruits with plenty of chocolate and bourbon, some nuts, caramel, vanilla, and a touch of alcohol. Very rich. Great stuff.

Bottle from the holiday pack. Pours Very Dark Brown, not much head. Nose is lemon, sweet doppelbockesque malt (why isn’t there a red squiggly line under that?), toffee, grapefruit, sourness. Flavour is very sweet and very sour, leathery, palate is heavy, this was pretty disgusting to me. It may be getting more sour as it ages. The heaviness sweetness and sourness do not blend well.

Ahhh finally found this beer (Oblivion Taproom). The pour was a brilliant deep red with silky lacing. The aroma was of chocolate, molasses, oak, vanilla and raisins. This one packed some serious flavor, a lot like liquor-soaked, chocolate-covered raisins with lots of deep malt flavors. Once again does this prove why they are my favorite brewery. maley1 (1298) - Calgary, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
Dark brown pour with small tan head that quickly fades. Aroma of chocolate, malts, molasses, vanilla, caramel and red wine. Taste of malts, caramel, vanilla, molasses, ripe red fruits. Slightly tart and sour in the background. Lots going on in this one, very enjoyable all round.
