Opened at 4/20 tasting.

Pours a rich cloudy mahogany, brownish head that's thin but pretty attractive.

Smells of tartness, bourbon, caramel and chocolate.

Wow, taste is surprising. Pretty crazy mix of sweet bourbon inflected caramel maltiness and sour vinegary Flanders Red character...never had anything quite like this, great stuff.

Good creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation, very rich flavors but still pretty drinkable.

The most pleasant surprise of the night and one of the best of the tasting.

8.8/10

Poured into a snifter. Big thanks to khumbard for this. The cork on this was horrible and broke at two points while I fought to get it out.

3.25 A: Dark brown color. Just under one finger of frothy/fizzy beige head that falls quickly and leaves no lacing.

4.25 S: I didn't realize this was a sour until right now. Not what I was expecting, but I'm not unhappy about it since it smells great. Subtle acetic acid with more emphasis on a tangy lactic acid component. Brown sugar, caramel, quince, and chocolate. Notes of plum and purple grape. Funk is fruity and earthy, but not too powerful. The barrel is used perfectly for this beer. The bourbon complements lightly without interfering with the base beer's aromas. Light leather and earthiness with vanilla and oak notes.

4.25 T: The taste is a lot more "wild" than the nose suggests. This isn't to say this is overly sour because it isn't, but I was expecting mild sourness and I got moderate. Lots of tanginess in here in the form of fruity raisin, not quite ripe plum, quince, crab apple, and white grape. Brown sugar, caramel, chocolate, and maybe a hint of molasses. Again the bourbon is subtly complementary. Light earth and leather, but stronger vanilla and oak.

4.25 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a pleasant spritzy creaminess. Supremely smooth. Great here.

4.5 D: This is a great beer without really any problems.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber body with a khaki head. Settles to nothing. A thin collar.

Smell - Bourbon comes through and lots of caramel and vanilla. Red wine notes and other dark fruits. Nice acidity.

Taste - Follows the smell. Bourbon blends nicely. Deep caramel and a rising acidity. Vanilla and bourbon linger on the palate.

Mouthfeel - Way overcarbonated. Medium heavy body. I think this could be much better with lesscarbonation.

Overall - Excellent flavors. The bourbon blends very well. Just too carbonated.
