Bottle - Orange and spicy. Cloudy orange with a thin head. Slightly sour and spicy with orange and light malts. I am not a huge fan, to spicy and maybe better with the age they recommended. jtclockwork (16857) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2014

Bottle shared on the RBWG bus tour. Pours is a burnt gold. Aroma has a surprising amount of toffee, moderate oak notes, some red table wine. Flavor is wood heavy, slight ethanol hotness, with decent vinegar punch. drsordr (2778) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2014

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 Bottle shared by Mister Quig, pours reddish brown color with medium head and lace. Smells boozy with Captain Morgan, brett, sugar, sour brown, and raisin. Light to medium in body. Kind of like a sour imperial brown. Weird bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2013
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy orange-brown body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of herbs, caramel, horse blanket, vinous, wood, and fruit. Flavor of brett, citrus, wood, yeast, caramel, and vinous with a dry finish. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle, shared by jack (thanks bro!). Batch 3, I think. Pours a cloudy mohagany with a medium sized off white head. Flavor is spicey and funky. Really interesting funky brown-nutty, funk, lots of barrel. Delish. OldMrCrow (2444) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods Roosevelt. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours cloudy brown like unfiltered cider. Chardonnay and mulled citer aroma. Sweet-and-(a bit)-sour, in Jolly Pumpkin territory without the great JP house character. Nutty, peppery, plenty of oak. Notable heat. I was really looking forward to this one, but now I’m just trying to figure out what to do with 750 ml of it.
Addendum: Most of went down the drain, and I feel stupid for spending 14 bucks on this one.
Bottle from the brewery.
A: Latent swirling head. Brackish brown color that’s rather unattractive.
N: Heavy pie cherry, lacto, some marionberry, oak, cocoa, and caramel. Nutmeg and cinnamon. All over the place and not in a tasty, complex way.
T: Pepper spiciness, caramel sweetness. Slight sourness. Pretty nasty.
M: Medium mouthfeel. Somewhat sticky. OK
O: Honestly, this is terrible. Going to dump the bottle and find something better. It’s like an infected barleywine.
