750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown. Almost black. Excellent head and seeming eternal retention.

Smell - You can still smell the roast malts back there. A little bit of vinegar acidity. Red wine vinous notes. Very nice.

Taste - Nice acidity. Very strong sourness. Dark cherry flavors. Red wine flavors, including astringency. A little bit of that porter comes through, too.

Mouthfeel - Overcarbonated. Nicely sour, almost too sour, but not quite over the edge.

Overall - Who knows what this tasted like fresh, but it tastes pretty damn good still.

Finally cracked open my bottle a few weeks back.

Color is a dark ruby with a light tan head.

Flavor profile is a lot of sour and fun. Cherries, oak, and tannin all present. A little bit of spices show (gift of the magi?). Some herbal flavors. Maybe a hint of orange peel. Very wine like. Reminds me of consecration.

Medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. Definitely a solid beer, but nothing out of this world. I would definitely drink this again.

On tap @ Bottleworks.

Appearance. Pours a dark brown with a little red, no head.

Smell. Nice sour brown smell, sour cherries, brown sugar, oak and melon.

Taste. Medium lactic sourness, lots of oak, some cherry and light fruits.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, virtually flat with just a faint bit of carbonation.

Overall. Nice sour brown but the lack of carbonation was a little disapointing ...I say a little 'cause, well you know, LA ;-)
