COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A few times a year, we will cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, unplugged. Always handcrafted, this beer is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. A complex and intriguing original. The mystery began with wild yeast spontaneously fermenting a rich treasure of malted barley and cherries. Unlined Oak casks breathe deep vanilla hues and chords of smoke into this sour brown ale. Our Master Brewer has forged a smooth garnet tapestry that defies description. Wander off the beaten path.
2006 vintage - 7%
2010 vintage - 5.5% (separate entry)
You can tell the vintages apart as the 2010 bottles have the © symbol to the left of the UNPLUGGED banner while the 2006 does not.

Richmond 13th. Aroma is interesting, sour cherry and worcestishire (sp?). Flavor is more sweet cherry and an interesting vanilla finish. Very good.

degbert (1772) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle. Holy mother. Nose is INCREDIBLE -- brandy, buckwheat honey, cherries, vanilla, caramel. Pours a rich gold -- almost brandy colored again -- with a very light head. Taste is incredible -- more of the same as the nose, with rich sourness (if that’s possible) and some faint bitterness on the close. In-freaking-credible.

coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle in trade with Fear025. pours a deep copper with a thinner oily tan head. Note: this sucker is the last to lurk in the upstairs fridge...mainly cause the pickles have been secluding it next to the maraschino cherries. Nose hints of a gentle sour ale even before I have the brains to read the label. Some fusel tones then rich viscous fruit hit the tongue with a slight sour finish. Plums and some soft wet wood circle the mouth. Slow lazy carbonation. Body is ciderific and light to medium. Thats all I got folks.

3.5
dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle pours hazy amber with a fizzy head. Aroma is dominated by notes of cherry with underlying hints of oak and funk. Flavor shows basically the same. This reminds me somewhat of dissident, just quite a bit less spicy. Overall body is moderate, sweet, and lightly acidic.

3.8
Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Bottle drank in our room at the Pfister, Milwaukee. (Great party Simon. Congrats!) Medium brown color with a tan head. Softly sour aroma with a bit of malt and dark cherry in the background. Flavor is tart and sustained by a bit of caramel and fresh cherry notes.
