jefcon (1921) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Great balance of sour funky aged elements and complex yeasty brown malts. A big beer on the palate, with a lot going on: cherries, old stone fruit, raisins, barnyard and heat from the alcohol.

mcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small white head. Aroma brings out Worcestershire sauce, balsamic, acidity and wood. Flavour brings out lots of tannins and red wine barrels, followed by some balsamic, a touch of sweetness and light acidity. Very tannic and earthy. Unusual and doesn’t really come together.

[ keg ][ 5oz ][ @Flying Saucer ][ $5 ][ mini tumbler ][ 06.04.16 ]

hazy ruby, thin cream head lasts, craters. Metallic cherry syrup and brown sugar dominates the nose. Flavor similar, metallic high carb amidst Woody brown sugar early that evolves into chocolate by end, wood lasting and lasting amidst light underattenuation. Finishes too sweet and thin, oppressively oily.
