Huge thanks to glazeman for this. I've been waiting to try this one for a while.

Appearance is good, but nothing too special - dark brown/black with a coffee and creme colored half finger head with nice head retention. Foam fades to a few bubbles that line the edge of the snifter and remain for the rest of the drink.

When I first smelled this beer, my first thought was that it was infected. I get cherry and raspberry tart with a small amount of bourbon and vanilla. More than anything else, however, it smells like a funky, bottle conditioned sour.

Taste is sour cherries, with some vanilla and bourbon in the middle, followed by roasts and nuttiness in the finish. I think this is most likely infected, but the sourness works well with the vanilla and hints of bourbon.

Mouthfeel is so-so. A little thick, but I would prefer thicker.

Overall, this is a good beer. Very good. Probably infected, but the tartness works well. I would love to try this again.
