Huge thanks to pitasoup for this one, trade done from Reddit.
Light fizzy head, slight yeast chunks at the bottom, dark murky molasses brown ruby colored beer with touch of light coming through.
Nose great, tart fruit, sour malt, bit lambic like tartness, light acidity, hint of dark malts, light raisin, bit of tart cherry, great tart fruit, hint of vanilla oak.
Taste starts nice and tart, soured malt, light wild funk and acidity, brown sugar, molasses, raisin, like sour candy, whisky sour cherry, light earthy nutty like malts, light sweetness, little syrupy, hint of vanilla and oak. Long tart finish, dry bready malts and earthy light funk, light tart cherry. Sticky syrupy as well.

Served in a Duvel Tulip - In 2011, Thanks Kyle2k10.
Looks like mulled cider with a murky brown body and tinges of red and yellow. Small 1 finger off-white head. Decent lacing.
Smells like Supplication, which makes me excited in anticipation of that dry fruity sour goodness. Funky yeast, new oak, and lots off stewed Autumn fruits.
Wow! Too sour, and I usually love sour beers. It's like a slap in the face with acid. I should've let this age a bit because I think it would be more enjoyable with more time to bottle condition. The flavors would have a chance to meld and the sourness would be suppressed a little bit more. Taste is more of the same from the nose, but not as well executed. Vinegar notes and some cherries come out. Leather is certainly there too as the bottle suggests.
Carbonation is there, but it's low to moderate. Feels thin despite the big bold murky body which leads you to believe otherwise.
This is not a bad beer, and I think it would be better in time, which is why my overall score is a bit higher. I'd rather drink this than others I rated 3.5 in the overall field.
