A: poured from a 750 mL bottle into a snifter, dark red brown with a short tan head that dissipates quickly, clear

S: balsamic vinegar, oak, sour cherries, dark fruits

T: the sour flavor here is quite powerful but balance by oak tannins, tart cherry, vinegar, hints of flavor from the cognac barrels slip in as the beer warms

M: medium body, quite chewy, mouthwatering

O: bottled Jan 2014, this beer was purchased in Orlando, Florida in May and cellered, it was an excellent purchase, thanks to the store owner who whipped it out of hiding behind the counter
