4.04/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A- Pours finger dark vanilla head with very low retention. Head sticks to the glass. Crazy amount of carb. Extremely dark red, looking dark brown, non transparent. The liquid is not foggy looking, just really dense.

S- Deep raspberry, base of funk and malt. The fruit cuts through the funk though leaving more of a prevalent fruit dominance. I am getting a touch of barrel there as well.

T- Tart raspberry that fades into a taste that I don't like... oud bruin. I hope it gets better down the glass, and I will change if it does. The raspberry is there, the barrel is there, but the co-mingling between the two don't mesh for me.

M- Kinda harsh with too much carb. I hope the bottle mellows out as I go. Tart acid hits the mouth. On swallow, too much carb interferes with the brew. I have another bottle to revisit in a year or so. Hope it gets better.

O- I had huge expectations for this one, but I was a bit let down as I didn't get a smooth beer with the adjuncts seemingly fighting each other.

Thanks Moc

The beer pours a dark black/brown with a 1/2 inch of a fluffy tan head that laces. The nose is a sour funkiness, sweet caramel/vanilla oakiness, tart raspberries, and acetone. The taste brings all the potent funk of a world class sour together with an abrasive oakiness highlighted by tart raspberries. It has an absolutely intense medium-full body, blending effervescent, saturating wood flavors with tart raspberries, funky yeast, a bone dry finish. This is definitely an incredible sour, which may highlight the barrel more than the raspberries, but still has a distinct fruitiness and is definitely delicious.
