Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at AndrewK's tasting.

Batch 5/23/13.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, fruit, whiskey, and funk aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit and slight cocoa flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is quite sour and puckering.

Very dark brown pour with a khaki head. Aromas of balsamic vinegar, red wine, chocolate, vanilla, and oak. Hints of whiskey, some lemon, a bit of grass, roasted malt, caramel, and dark fruits. Whew, a lot going on. Complex flavors of balsamic vinegar, caramel, chocolate, tannic red wine, whiskey, and oak. Notes of vanilla, dark fruit, some grass, and roasted malt.

First had: bottle from the '13 Cellar Reserve

Deep brown-black pour, opaque, with a small but firm cap of tan head that retained well and left gentle lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark roasty malts with a burst of tartness, dark fruits--cherries and red wine. This beer reminded me bit of Tired Hands' Guillemot Nebula, and that's a good thing. The taste followed the nose, tart black cherries, red wine, lacto, good notes of bourbon-soaked oak, all backed up with dark malts bringing in hints of burnt caramel and unsweetened chocolate. Medium-full body, tart, but not overly puckering, moderate carbonation, and a warm boozy kick. Very nice overall.
