500mL bottle. 2016. Pours mahogany-red with a small tan head. Aroma is cherry, vinegar, oak, and some sweet malt. Taste is sour cherry, lots of oak, raisins, toffee, some funk, peat, and earthy yeast. Sweet up front with a growing sour acidity that dissipates in the finish. Very dry. Medium body. Medium, fine carbonation. Crisp-ish mouthfeel - with a little bit of yeast funk keeping it from nailing the crispness. Too much wood. The interplay between sour and sweet is great, but the woody/peaty/earthy finish and lingering taste leaves a lot to be desired. Interesting if not as satisfying as I'd hoped. ljthiessen (1397) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 28, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy reddish brown pour with a small off-white head. Quite sour but really nice, raisin, cherries, a touch funky, quite rich and a little boozy. gephross100 (943) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2017
UPDATED: APR 20, 2017 2016 bottle. Pours reddish brown with no head. Dates, plum, medium sweetness. Sharp pedio sourness. Light mouthfeel, average carbonation. wombat23 (1662) - Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Shared 500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a light beige head. Aroma of tart cherries and dark berries. Taste is tart cherries, dark berries, oak, booze. Interesting. It’s certainly correctly classified as a sour, but you can definitely still taste the underlying scotch ale base - and it works rather well together. Excellent. darbeer75 (953) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2017
Aroma: lots of cherry and some tartness; Appearance: clear dark amber pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: intensely sour with some caramel scotch ale in the background; interesting and different; Palate: heavy body with long, sour finish; Overall: good but better in small quantities. Will probably not get again but still enjoyed it.

Bottled at Ottawa gathering. Hazy mahogany, small head. Tart oaky nose. Mid sweet with vinegary sourness, full bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Vinegar and white pepper, oaky berries. Low bitterness. Vinegar is the lasting flavour. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2017

Growler pour. Light beige head. Dark brown body with reddish tint. Strong bourbon and hints of cherry aroma. Initial taste carbonation and sour cherries. Finishes with a vanilla bourbon whisky and toffee flavor. Great winter time beer with a unique flavor. Andrew196 (1973) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Dark amber, frothy beige head. Aroma of cherry, toffee. I love how the sour leads to the caramel burst towards the end, some whiskey and wood, very big, very good.
