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.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Black with a small khaki head. Nice surface wisps. Thin collar.
Smell - Vanilla. Has a cream soda aroma to it. Some acidity. Some chocolate malt. A little butterscotch.
Taste - Has a little bit of cream soda to it. Bourbon barrel and a bucket of vanilla. But then it sours. Dark fruit sourness. Coffee roasted malts.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated. Moderate sourness.
Overall - There's a dichotomy to this. The cream soda flavors are nice. The sourness is nice, but a little out of place.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with minimal head and lacing. The smell is sour oak with roasty undertones. The taste starts pretty sour but that fades leaving light chocolate and coffee along with some vanilla and bourbon. I like that the flavors separate because there's a lot going on here. This one is lightly carbonated and finishes smoothly with the bourbon flavors. Overall I like this, but I prefer some of Almanac's fruit-based sours.
