Bottle. Almost clear deep brown liquid with small light brown head. Aroma of red berries, wood, light buttery bourbon, blueberries, dark toffee and light baby corn. Taste is light sweet, light bitter and light sour with notes of raspberry, bourbon and dark toffee. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Nice but weird. jcartamdg (3539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2012

22 oz. bottle via trade. 2011 vintage, bottle 56/210. Pours a murky dark brown with a little bit of amber highlights and a small beige head that quickly settles into a ring. Good blend of raspberry and bourbon barrel character; vanilla, caramel, and brown sugar sweetness, along with mild balsamic, plums, and raisins. Medium-bodied, with a funky, gritty mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Good sour, very mild and drinkable. dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Forgetfu! Pours a cloudy brown-red color with a small tan head. Aroma has raspberry, light bourbon and some wood. Taste is sweet and has from fruit tartness along with some richness courtesy of the bourbon. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Pretty interesting and quite good. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Thanks to forgetfu. Bottle pours deep brown with an extremely thin head. Aroma is sweet and somewhat tart with notes of burnt caramel, bourbon, raspberry, maple/brown sugar, and a touch of earth. Flavor shows additional light roast, oak, and a touch of vanilla. Overall body is moderate, with a nice balance between bourbon/malt sweetness and tart berry acidity. Even though there were some monster beers present during the tasting, I still enjoyed this one quite a bit.

Pours a murky red-brown color with a small off-white head. Heavy on the wood aroma with a lot of sweet, dark fruit and raspberry. A lot of vinegar and definitely some soy sauce to it as well. The salt and soy sauce flavors are unmistakable here. Lots of vinegar and wood, maybe some caramel malt sweetness, a bit of raspberry and other dark fruit. Really just not enjoyable at all. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Forgetfu with ANOTHER big hookup! Pours a nice dark brown color with reddish edges. Aroma of berries, the signature yeast of Jackie O’s, light vinegar notes, some wet toothpick. Flavor is sour, berries, vinegar, yeast. Damn right this is awesome.Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JAN 8, 2012

Deep brown. Sweet and sour aroma. Loads of bourbon, plums, vinegar, chalky raisiny notes. Flavor is a nice mix of bourbon, sour vinegar and bourbon. Crazy different and good.
750ml bottle. Rating #12, thanks George. Murky dark brown pour with a thin head. Tart fruity aroma, the berries come through nicely. Mild tartness, more raspberries, really nice. (2103) dimenhetfield (2554) - , Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Big thanks to MikeLovesBeer for sharing this at his BBQ. Not sure what batch this was but I’m assuming it was batch 4. Awesome sour nose with hints of fruit. Flavor was tart and just plain delicious. Loved this one. chibuck (3521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2011
bottle thanks to Mike... dirty dark brown, ok tan head... smells awesome, perfect tart raspberries, a bit of lactic, chocolate... taste is down from the nose, a bit overcarbonated, way too oaky, raspberries are gone, only a bit of tartness, some chocolate... great start but disappointing finish
