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.

Draft at pizza plant. Dark Brown pour with a thick creamy khaki head. Funky nose with raisins and some plum. Taste is really sweet with Apple, funk, raisins, slightly bitter. Long gradually bitter finish.

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.

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)

sudomorph (1190) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
650ml bottle, bottled 2/18/13. Pours a deep brown/black with a thin, tan head. Aroma has smooth notes of tart cherries, caramel, vanilla, oak, and spice. Really nice. Taste is sweet/tart with cherries, spice, raspberries, and mild oak. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall complex with smooth barrel notes and tart cherry/raspberries.

650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, with moderate lacing, over a clear, dark brown/black (SRM 40) body....nose is fruits including pomegranate, plum, raisin, brown sugar, hints of whiskey....taste is sweet with tones of molasses, pomegranate, plum, brown sugar, raisin, hints of coffee, cocoa, chocolate, light whiskey, vinous tones, finishing with light bitterness.....mouth feel thick, quite sticky, mildly astringent, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds light tingle. This is a rich, very sweet, complex, voluptuous beer, that is reminiscent of many dessert wines. It would not be good in a desert. The sweetness, although with many layers, dominates. This is not a beer for those who like dry, hoppy, clean finishing beers. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

mansquito (6914) - 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.

MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a clear reddish brown beer with a medium sized beige head on top. Aroma is funky, doughy and had some roasted characters. Flavour is very sour, tarty and funky. Big oak and cherries going on here. Very nice surprise, didn’t see it coming.
