Popped this open for share, thanks Nate, about an 8 oz pour. Pours a dark brown body with a thin tan head. Smell is tart, cherries, lacto, white grapes, some bourbon, vanilla, and sweet malts. Taste is oude-tart forward with apples, grapes, cherries, and other sour fruits. Behind these flavors are the big base of black tuesday which imparts some chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla. Honestly though the black tuesday is subdued. Mouthfeel is medium, moderate carbonation, fairly smooth. Overall I'd be curious to know the proportions of the blends, this tastes like 75/25 oude tart. Regardless, it works well, I really loved this brew.

4.28/5 rDev +3.4%

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Tampa Bay Brewing Company snifter.
A: Deep brown with garnet highlights around the rim. Basically opaque except around the edges. Forms a thin tan head that fades fairly quickly, and low visible carbonation.
S: Bourbon and oak, vinous, tart cherries and some acetic character, roasted malts with some chocolate notes.
T: Follows the nose well - tart cherry, acetic, restrained bourbon flavor, oak tannins, roasted malts, and a touch of chocolate. Finishes tart with lingering vinegar acidity.
M: Lighter body than the appearance suggested, but not at all watery. Carbonation sensation on the low side. Alcohol flavors are obvious, but certainly not overly hot.
O: Very tasty. The sour flavors from the Oude Tart dominate the Black Tuesday character, but it's a nice blend. Significantly easier to drink than I thought it might be. Recommended.
