A - looks like a less carbonated cola, with a fizzy little head that dissipates quickly but leaves a small frothy ring for the entirety.

S - smells like certain wine barrel aged barleywines I've had, though there is a sweet hint of boozy bourbon. There's plum, golden raisins and a little licorice. Acetic funk develops a little later on and brings a tart white wine presence to the nose. Deeply intriguing and inviting nose.

T - first sip is perfectly sweet with plums, cherries and raisins, and a little warm bourbon. Again, like a barrel aged barleywine. But then the tartness kicks in at the back of the palate and takes this beer to the next level. Like the nose, one is reminded of tart white grapes and white wine -- a strange juxtaposition with the sweet dark fruit flavors. As the beer warms there's creamy vanilla from the bourbon, which is really nice paired with the big cherry presence. This one's a real complicated and enjoyable sipper.

M - mouthfeel is fuller than one would expect given the tartness, but still has a nice bit of effervescence to it.

Overall, it's tough to pull off dark sour beers, but this one's a real stunner. There's not a clue of the big 9.6 ABV in this beer. Another home run from Crooked Stave.
