Bottle from the Hoarders membership, sampled on 9/3/17. Pours dark red to copper with a medium beige head. Nose of malt, funk, sour cherry and caramel. Malt and caramel flavor giving way to some oakiness and sour cherry before a funky finish. Everyone else dumped this one. While these flavors aren't necessarily meant to come together, I thought it was decent enough to finish the glass. bytemesis (9208) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 18, 2017

Bottle split at ABC Beer The Hague, 24/09/2015. Many thanks to whomever brought this. Aroma is malty brown brown, apple vinegar, tart pinch of acid and brown sugars. A dark brown coloured pour with a halo tan head. Flavour is composed of tart lacto, brown sugars, apple, leather. Palate is sour and tangy, highish carbonation. Good.

Dark brown but not clear as others claim. Small head even with aggressive pour. Caramel and brown sugar aroma, some red wine. Flavor is not overly intense and much better than the Cinnamonk I last had, but just an average sour. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2016
bottle. whoops another terrible abortion from bruery. This was terrible, vinegar added to a medicore scotch ale. koleminer20 (3976) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed this baby at a line share at Witch’s Hat on St. Patty’s Day. 750 mL bottle poured by origins unknown, once again. People just kept showing up at our table. Didn’t hate it, but couldn’t keep track of them. The pour is interesting, to say the least. It’s a solid brown, with hints of lighter red shining through. There is a big frothy light khaki head that foams down, leaving some good lace. This thing is exceptionally clear as well, I’m not sure what to make of that. The aroma is a god-damned scotch bomb. There is some wet barrel staves in there, and it’s got a heavy sweetness. There is a little tartness to it, but it’s just not very good. The flavors are a little better. There is a souring to it, which honestly seems like it’s from the barrel, rather than intended. There is again a lot of scotch, but it’s a touch more balanced than the nose. It’s not bad, but it’s far from good. The mouth feel is light, thin, and slick, with a pretty bubbly sharp carbonation and a lingering sourness on the back end. I would never drink this one again, but hey, it’s a retired Bruery beer. ebone1988 (2122) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2016
