750 ml bottle shared with drsordr and Corey after changing breaks on the car. Pours a murky brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have Belgian yeast, dark fruits, sweet malts, vinous notes, hints of wood, a bit thin with some alcohol.

A pretty okay sour dark ale. Pours a murky mahogany. Balance favors the dark fruit sweetness over the Worcestershire sourness.

slowrunner77 (12844) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Brown murky pour. Light lacing. Aroma and flavor are sweet leaning, but not overly so. Yeast and berry forward, vinous. Thick body. Toffee and other dark fruits as well. Nice, if a little on the expensive side for "nice."

Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a medium, frothy beige head, long retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy cookie and bready malt, plums, Port, wet oak, cherries and soft Belgian yeast spices. Flavor is moderate bready and cookie malt, light earthy hops and bitterness, lightly tart prunes and cherries with earthy Belgian yeast spices, Port wine with a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

tekstr1der (501) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 29, 2016
1yr aged... Pours a murky brown ala the style with a tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is mild - soft malt and slight vinous notes among some yeast. Flavor has much more pronounced vinous quality, rounded well by caramel. Finish gets oaky, but not too dry. Pretty interesting combo of favorite styles of beer and wine.
