A -Pours a dark caramel brown color that is cloudy. Beer foams over and overflows glass, 2 inches of liquid yields 6 inches of foam.

S - A lot of fruit and caramel flavors with tart cherries and a strong sour flavor that overpowers everything.

T - sour cherries, gym socks, spices, apples, dark fruit, subtle brandy.

D - Over carbed to say the least..

O - This was clearly an infected bottle, possibly at the bottling line. I've had this beer several times before and it tasted nothing like this. Disappointing would be an understatement.

Thanks to queens1130 for sharing this one at jmgrub's tasting.

Best by 1/1/14.

Pours a clear reddish-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, dark fruit, spice, and brandy aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour malt, dark fruit, and brandy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody and spice bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is fairly tasty but there seems to be some sort of infection going on with this one.

A - Pours a murky dark caramel brown with a fluffy tan head with good retention.

S - Fruity- apple, figs, sweet caramel candy.

T - Green apple, fig, molasses, leather, earthy.

D - Good carbonation with a lighter body.

O - It's getting colder outside so... Fruity and sweet brandy makes it sweet, a bit overly sweet, but great flavors.
