2 years in the cellar. It has a nice deep brown hue. The aroma is certainly that of funk. The flavor is complex, rich, delightful, and inviting. The finish is a bit on the rough side but it may be due to the low temp at which I'm consuming it. Is it worth the $23 I paid for the bottle. In my first few sips I have to say, yes.

on tap @ Mackenzie's (Surly tap takeover leftovers)
A- Very dark color. Can see a hint of red if held to the light, but otherwise could easily be mistaken for a dark beer. Thin head that dissipates quickly.
S- Cherry. Cherry sour everywhere. Smells just great, with a hint of the oak barrel.
T- Cherry tart. Definitely get some red wine feel in there. Very bright and sour, although not a ton of complexity here it's not necessary as the base flavor is delicious.
M- Very nice, a little chewy. Well carbonated, extremely drinkable.
O- Clearly excellent. Happy 5th anniversary indeed. Unique take on the style from a wonderful Minnesota brewer, and makes me look forward to sampling the Pentagram in my basement even more.
Serving type: on-tap
