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.

after4ever (8020) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2015
12-oz, capped, foiled. Pours a murky dark brown with a creamy but thin tan head. Big sweet nose, showing a nice combination of balsamic, berries, stone fruit, and a hint of red wine vinegar. Tart, sweet, and complex. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Berries, stone fruit, and vinegars return on the mid palate, along with a bit of woodiness. Strong biting tart finish.

This is from a 2010 Unplugged bottle I found in the back of the fridge. Muddy dark amber color with a small beige head. Nose of tart cherries. The flavor is dominated by the tart cherries with some wet oak and a bit of moldy earth. I dont get any smoke out of this. Im not a fan of sour beers but this one is okay. Now Im curious if it is any different fresh.

monkeychugg55 (1082) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Dark reddish brown with no head. The aroma is cherry, apple, smoke and Worcestershire. The flavor has got some toasty and slightly smokey malt, but turns nicely sour with some cherry and oak.

JPDIPSO (6178) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Brown, almost amber color with huge bubbles and nice effervescence. Head dissipates quickly. Smell is somewhat metallic, sour, and oak notes also. Taste initially is a great sourness that turns into a faint oak presence that could almost be seen as a sherry type taste as it lingers. 4/10
