Bottle 220 of 395. Batch 3205-7

A: Pours a nice clear ruby. Appears to be flat or close to it, no real head or lacing at all.

S: Hmph, is this a barrel aged sour? Interesting. Lots of sour fruits, vinegar and acetone. But there's some sweet caramel and toffee mixed in. So sour it stings the nose.

T: Whoa. Some nice caramel, brown sugar and toffee but mostly it is annihilated by a huge wave of sour fruit. Tart cherries I think. Some vanilla in the finish. Instantly it's giving me heartburn.

M: Flat, medium bodied and smooth however.

O: Super sour, loaded with vinegar and acetone to the gills. You can tell this beer had potential but the sour aspects just destroy any semblance of flavor. Having said that, this is easily the best dark horse sour I've had so far. Not that that is saying much. Mostly they are all like drinking nail polish remover.

2012 vintage, Bottle #28 of 395, Batch #3205-7. 750 ml C+C bottle into a tulip. The cork was a huge struggle to get out. I had to use vice grips and a corkscrew, it still took ten minutes...

A - Pours a slightly hazy dark golden body, its quite pretty actually. No head to speak of, just some small bubbles around the edge and thin lacing.

S - Huge bourbon presence. Vanilla, toffee, butterscotch, and charred oak. A bit of sour cherries on the finish. Smell is pretty amazing if your a fan of whiskey and Flemish browns/reds.

T - Starts off with some light cherries, vanilla, and oak. Very thin tasting.The taste is decent until a huge wave of vinegar and acid washes over. A quick and unpleasant taste of paint thinner and then a finish of oak and booze. Its not bad per se, its just not great. The biggest issue is the insane level of acidity that accompanies the light flavors.

M - No surprise here, its dead flat. Not a huge issue for me (I enjoy unblended lambics and flat stouts...) but to some this may be an issue. A bit of spritz would help out immensely but the beer does work as a flat one IMO. Heartburn is the biggest issue here.

O - Not as bad I as was expecting. I'd even go so far as to say I like it despite its short comings. Its flat, super acidic, and lacking in complexity. However the aroma is a like a light bodied barrel aged oud bruin and the little flavor it has before being interrupted by volcanic vinegar is kind of nice. Decent for sure.
