Complex beer. Aroma of malt, spice and sourness. Full and syrupy palate. Copper and brandy color. No head. Biscuit flavors with a sourness that compliments. Pepper and a dry finish. Alcohol stands out. SudsMcDuff (8551) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2015
bishops barrel #2 by itself was pretty enjoyable, but this version is just a pair of wet sloppy tits! just brilliant stuff .. . dark purple .. solid foam .. . dark prune, jam, caramel, cherry skin, and brett .. . medium mouth and a legit finish .. . . Hey, wait a minute! My hands are stuck to my head! What the fuck? TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
GABF 2014 Rating (Denver, CO). Pours a nice glowing amber hue, decent hazy body with frothy tannish head atop. Stays as a firm film, good stick around and lacing. Aromas are big funk, cobwebs and gentle spice. Cherries, wet wood and vanillin are a bit tannic dry and tart. Some cobwebs, mellow sour growth, gentle carmelized and biscuity malts poke beneath. Initial is a bit tannic, sour and tannic cherryskin meet a touch of red wine, vanillin and carmelized and gentle sweet biscuit. Touches of tartness, funk tapers off a bit with some cherryskin, a bit seedy with a more more dry and funky backend. Firm cobwebs, dust, and funk meet gentle toast, carmelized with vanillin, touches of earth and a mellow fruity element as we finish. Comes together, a bit vague but that brett and oak, cherryskin adds some complexity. Solid. dfinney23 (3424) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Not too surprisingly tastes like a more sour and funky version of the original BB#2. Good but the balance is a little off, IMO. GreatDane1632 (1177) - North Dakota, USA - JUN 11, 2014
On tap at Saint Arnold 20th Anniversary party -- Poured on draft and the more I drink beers made with Brett the more I thoroughly enjoy it. This was no exception, the w/o Brett version was an Ok beer, but this kicked it up a notch. Very pleasant.

Bottle... Cloudy caramel-colored ale with a small, brief, white head. The nose is all about caramel, sour berries – cherries & red raspberries mostly – acidity and mild funk. Full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is certainly caramely, fruity and tangy, but not sour or even tart. However, the balance of caramel sweetness and fruity tanginess is quite nice. Crisp, refreshing finish. Bottle courtesy of Rosebud butternuts! kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Pours clear red. Looks like brandy. The head is thin and white. Sour, funky aroma, a little tart and dry. Taste is sweet ripe fruit, oak, vanilla, sour yeastiness, and chocolate on the finish. This beer has a very confusing flavor profile. Its good though. Dogbrick (14386) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Sample at the tasting room. The beer pours a dark reddish-mahogany color with a minimal white head that disappears quickly. Sparse spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, brett and dark fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of tart cherries, brett and pale malts. The finish is fruity with a mildly sour cherry aftertaste. Pretty good all around. djd07 (16428) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2013
On tap at brewery. Pours a dark amber and ruby with paperthin white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is strong cherry, oak, and brett. Thin mouthfeel with light oak flavor and strong brett with light dry finish. Very good one off of the original.
