A - Dark cola colored body with a one finger tan head. Very stout like look.
S - Tart berry acidity, dark fruits, faint oak and a little roastiness to it.
T - Sweet berries and sour cherries in the beginning. To me, the cherry sour is really from the start to finish. Secondary flavors of roasted malts and faint chocolate notes.
M - Light bodied, medium carbonation. Really crisp and smooth body.
O - An interesting mix with the dark characteristics and the sour coming together.

22oz bomber poured into a tulip glass.
A: Thin head that is more fizzy carbonation than head. Deep plum coloring.
S: Prunes and cherry cola with hints of strawberry, alcohol, and charred tobacco.
T: Strong sweet and bitter flavors of dried fruit highlighted by prunes and apricots. Cherry cola slides around the tongue underneath the bitter flavors and shows its sweetness towards the end. Tart cherries really accelerate the acidity mid way through and blend into the malt.
M: Awesome mouth experience. Mix of sweetness and sour pucker right off the bat, relief provided by the carbonation and malt, then a return from the sour and sweetness. Bitterness backs off just enough and then swings back for the finale for a fun finish.
O: Alone in its class, in my opinion. La Folie and Crooked Stave are great wild / sour beers, but this is pretty darn close to a masterpiece.

NYE bottle share at Proof. Deepest of opaque browns with a thin white-tan head and thin tan collar. Aroma is like a port, dark fruit, deep red wine, some woodiness. Taste is extremely tart. Vinegary almost. I'm getting some of the wine like characteristics, with some roasted malt too. Very interesting flavor. Medium carbonation and medium-thick body.
