A - Pours a dark brown that's pretty mirky and has a tan head which about 1.5 fingers. Some lacing is evident and a bubbly ring stays behind as well with some fizz bubble here and there. Really nice to look at.
S - Fruity tartness, dark fruit such as plums or raisins. A nice meld of both tart and sweet here. Neither overpowers the other in terms of nose, which makes for a nice combo. I don't get a lot of oak notes here even though it was barrel-aged for quite some time.
T - Tastes like it smells. A mix of sour apples, cherries, lemon citrus, along with some sweet raisins and plums. There are some oak notes here that also contribute to the overall balance of this beer. Really a great meld of flavors.
M - A little too much carbonation for me. The finish isn't as dry as I expected but that doesn't bother me at all.
D - Easy to drink and very tasty.
O - Definitely ordering more of these, very good

2009 project in a snifter type glass. This beer is amazing.
A. Deep, deep ruby/mahogany. Fairly clear where you can actually see trough the darkness. Off white head is a thin layer of tiny soda bubbles, dissipating to next to nothing.
S. Lactic, lots of sour cherries, a little bit of funky barrel, a little red wine
T. Lots of lactic tartness, lots of tart cherries but with a little residual sweetness, just a faint red wine barrel. Not very complex but absolutely delicious. If I had to complain, id ask for a little more funk to balance the sweetness and add to the complexity.
M. Medium-light carbonation, medium bodies until the finish, where a nice slickness coats the mouth, leaving a lingering flavor of tart cherries.
O. First off, the cherry-ness is perfect. Not medicinal, not cloyingly sweet, not overly candylike, but like good ol' Belgian kriek cherries. The beer is fairly one dimensional, but lucky for it (and reeeealy lucky for me), it is an amazing dimension.
