22oz bottle #1/230 shared by jtclockwork, thanks-pours a tan head that slowly foams over after opening and copper color. Aroma is vinuous/acidic, medium malt, tart/barn. Taste is vinuous, medium malt-caramel, medium fruit-raspberry, wood. Finish is acidic/vinegar, which didn’t work for me, but front and mid-palate are quite enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Waxed bottle shared by jmborggren. Pours an opaque deep amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a nice tart fruity quality, oak, mild herbal notes and some toasted malt. The flavor has more tart fruits, a big woody component, some toasted malts, this was pretty drinkable, not a big sourness now but good.
