Didn't think I would ever get to try this, but thanks to rudzud for it.

Pours a light fizzy head that fades almost instantly. Dark murky caramel ruby maroon color.

Nose brings nice blend of sour malts and caramel candy malts, nice toffee and caramel, candy, etc, with great sour tart fruits and souring bacteria, with a nice tart guava and guava extract, and plenty of candied dates, nice buttery vanilla oak, oak is so buttery.

Taste brings sweet and sour, big on both. Are nice barleywine like malt profile, with caramel candy malts and little whisky like barrel note, lots of buttery and vanilla oak rounding. Some sour malt notes, and into tart fruit, nice sour like guava note with big guava juice, into a candied date again, nice dark fruit. Back end gets a bit of a meh sour porter note, and acidic sour vinous note. Finish is sticky syrupy and flemmy, more candied dates and guava paste, bit some bitter tannins as well, little oak barrel and dark sour malts.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, syrupy but sour and acidic, flemmy, hint of booze.

Overall really interesting nice sour, great guava and date fruits, nice sour malts and candy malt flavours, and nice barrel rounding, but that tannic somewhat unpleasant finish takes it down a notch.

Received a long time ago in a trade, shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear mahogany hue with some
thin head that fades to leave a light halo.

S - Aromas of guava and dates. Nice amount of oak solid barrel, buttery oak, light vanilla, almost vinous quality. Very nice. Candied dates, super pleasant.

T - Taste is loads of guava, shockingly loads of guava, sweet sugar dates, caramel, toffee, oak, slightly medicinal sweetness. Finish is quite tart with light vinous notes. Loads of oak tannins that for me distract me.

M - Mouthfeel is very nicely carbonated with the alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this was a bit of a confusing beer. I like the aroma, and the taste, but the super tannic finish just hinders this beers potential.
