Great nose with faint but distinct fruit (cherry?). Lots of depth and complexity of taste. Very tart yet not too tart. Porter character is important but nothing too dark or sweet about it. Incredible beer! One of the best favorite dark sours that I've tasted.

Disclaimer - I think that the 'dark sour' style tangent is a dreadful mess

on-tap, noble fir

This, like the other farm2barrel offerings, comes with quite the hefty price tag. Fortunately I found it on tap and got a nice reduction in the $/oz ratio. After the farmers reserve 3 and 4, this was just such a disappointment. It was sour, sure, but the combination of roasty and funky just doesn't make sense to me. The barrel notes were subtle to me, outweighed by char and roast, and a tannin sour bite.
