tmoreau (4678) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2017
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters displaying a hazed amber color, with a presentable layer of off white/light tan foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was subtle funk, tartness, slight oak, spice, fruitiness as cherry, berries, and plum, with a touch of vinous nature. The taste was similar notes, medium bodied, continuing tartness, warmth, and some earthy & rind-like bitterness. Nice sip & savor brew.

Capa (3500) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 30, 2016
Deep brick red with a tall head. Tart fruity notes, cherry, light spice, sweet balsamic vinegar, molasses. Medium bodied. Finish is long on the fruit and sour, too. Quite an enjoyable winter sipper.

3.8
Scipio (1238) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Pours a very dark amber with a thinner, creamy looking, beige head that remains for a very long time. The aroma is heavily tart, with spices, cherry, yeast, apple, and minor notes of caramel and cinnamon. The taste is a balance between sour and malt. Cherry and apple tartness along with cinnamon stand out most. Underneath I find fig, spice, yeast, and some chocolate. Its pretty dry and has sour cherry aftertaste. Medium in body here, with a slick texture, and some fizzy carbonation. This is one of the better Christmas beers that I’ve found.
