375ml bottle into snifter. Bottled Winter 2013.

A: Pours a very deep dark brown with a large, fluffy, and airy dark tan head that slowly faded into a thin film. Spotty patches of lace were left down the glass.
S: Smells like a great porter mixed with a bright, funky, sour ale with a splash of bourbon added. I get notes of chocolate syrup, roasted malts and vanilla from the base porter, and I get notes of bright, lightly tart lemon, acid, funk, and mild dark fruit. The bourbon is light on the nose but definitely notable.
T: Tartness is more lemony and citrusy than the nose let on, and shines alongside the roasted and chocolaty porter base. The finish is full of mild whiskey and vanilla, but these are quickly overshadowed by lemony, drying, and tart funky yeast. The finish has a stone fruit quality as well. Very delicious. More red grape-like flavor than bourbon.
M: Very drying mouthfeel with a fair amount of clinging tannins. Medium-fully body, tingly and fluffy carbonation. Tartness is drying and funky and not overly sour.
O: An excellent dark sour. Very dry and highly drinkable. Great flavor, not a ton of bourbon, but the sour and the porter mix very well.
