Bottle thanks to Kenny. Gusher! It pours cloudy darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is tangy darks fruits, acetic, cocoa, roasty, juicy cherry, balsamic vinegar, vanilla and rubber. The taste is sour, acidic, lactic, roasty, earth, toast, cherry, balsamic vinegar, sherbet and tart green apple with a hot, acidic finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. I like the idea, but it is pretty damn acidic. Alright. WillRunForBeer (2782) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle from some nice RS members, thanks guys! Pours murky brown with a faint rim of off white head. Aroma is sour cherry, vanilla, brown sugar. Taste has lots of tart cherry, hints of vanilla, oak, AirForceHops (7899) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 25, 2014
750 ml bottle purchased from RS. Pitch black color, light bubbly, fizzy. Aroma is mild notes of vanilla, with a huge amount of sour cherry. Flavor has the tart of darkness base with a huge amount sour cherry, the cherry overshadows the vanilla on my taste buds. Mild funk with more of a tart feel, just like the standard TOD. Mouthfeel is mostly just tart, good but I don’t get much of the vanilla, could be just me. AdamChandler (5182) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 25, 2014
750ML through Bruery RS @ Fridge Temp. Thanks Eric for Trusteeing, split 3 ways in snifters. budznsudz (584) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2014
A - Very dark brown with these nice red cherry hues, 2 finger head that faded slowly. Gushed only slightly and at a slow pace.
S - Nose is just loaded with tart lemon, wine, oak and a lot of sour cherry. I only get Vanilla very lightly
T - There’s a ton of vanilla in this beer. So much vanilla, lots of sour cherry. This is more sour than regular ToD, a ton of cherry and it’s just intense. i get a little balsamic up front and oaky finish with more cherry
M - Moderate mouthfeel, not too thin really has a good feeling, hard to explain though
O - I enjoyed this more than I expected. I like ToD a lot but was nervous the cherry and vanilla would be too much. It is a lot but really nice!
Dark pour with not much head. Aroma of sour candy and funky toe cheese of my wildest dreams. Insane boost, cherry vanilla vortex smacks my stout loving tongue on its ass. Glad I’m a Preservation society member. This one’s a winner.

Bottle from The Bruery. Pours near black with a tiny tan head and a chocolate cherry aroma. There is a very sour cherry flavor over a chocolate base and a vanilla aftertaste. oRos (1674) - sacramento, California, USA - NOV 17, 2014
