illidurit (2319) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle shared at the Collected Works tasting. Brown ale base is very clear - chocolatey bready malts, tending toward cocoa at times, with a winey acidity, a bit of vinegar, and cola.

douglas88 (8849) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 8, 2013
750 ml bottle released in September 2013. Pours a very dark reddish brown color with a medium white head. A slightly sour big spicy nose. The flavor is dominated by spices, brown sugar, plum, some slight sourness. A bit of heat and wine from the barrel. Interesting. Nutty with big spices.

mathieuc (3791) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
Pours a murky brown with almost no head. Not too much notes on this one but it wasnt too tasty and a bit awkard. Sour-ish/sweet, like a caramel apple maybe. Some spices that try to save the day but dont do much to make it more appealing.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours a medium-dark reddish brown, lots of off-white head. Aroma vinous and vinegary, lots of tartness. Maybe some stone fruit notes, too. Strawberry? Fresh apricots? Smells tasty. Body lively, finish sharp, tart, and then with a bright sweetness before fading back to a lingering if slight bitterness, woody notes. Holy hell, amazing. Will have to get another one to age; not sure what the vintage is of this bottle.

jackl (7466) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle. Cheers to Bruce. The pours deep red with a small head. The nose is spiced red fruits. Strawberry and blackberry preserve. Farmhouse yeast, a bit of fun. The taste is somewhat acetic. Berry punch, some lemon peel. Some rusty penny, a bit of mineral. Medium body, smooth. Overall, quite tasty indeed.
