750 ml bottle, bottle 1/13 1337, barrel TBB 1-6. Pours dark amber brown with a very thin fizzy head that quickly almost completely disappears, other than a little constant bubbling from the bottom of the glass.

The aroma is some sweet caramel, tart acidic fruit and funk with a little butyric acid.

The flavor is sweet sugary malts with tart sour fruit and a little funk. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with very low carbonation.

Overall, great name but a not so great sour.

Another Trinity grab during the summer road trip. Been in a cool cellar since August. Appreciate the reference, sort of.

A- Appears black in the glass but is closer to a very intense dark brown. A tiny head forms and dies almost immediately to nothing; looks more like a dark wine. Lacing is out of the question.

S- No idea where it's coming from but sesame oil really comes to mind and I've used my fair share of it; kind of overrides the rest for me. Dark roasty malts in the backdrop with some chocolate notes. Acetic and vinous tart fruits.

T- Sours and bugs take the spotlight here with a dose of both lactic and vinegar sourness. Raisins and mustard bring on a certain harshness with both coming on strong seemingly only adding to the strength of a big, vinous Chardonnay contingent. Roast chocolate grains are somewhat of an afterthought compared to the aforementioned flavors. That toasted sesame flavor comes and goes here throwing things off.

MF- Light-medium bodied with a consistency somewhere between slick-silky and foamy. Carbonation is medium-high and it all finishes out with a sourness that seems to grow and grow up to a very high level.

Not unsure what to say about this one but more like what should I say about it. A lot of things coming from different places seem to collide and overload the palate. I think the mustard on top of the raisins on top of the wine barrel on top of the souring bugs is just insanity but not really bad. That sesame feel is throwing me off big time but besides that its at least interesting.
