2013/Batch 2.

Appearance - Poured into a Fantome tulip. Color is dark brown with a beige head starting at about a finger. A partial cap remains along with spots of lacing.

Smell - Tart cherries and blackberries with a big sour vinegar kick, caramel and molasses hiding underneath that along with just a little bit of chocolate. Whiskey and oaky vanilla are faint but are quite nicely blended.

Taste - Wow, definitely big sourness here. Very vinegary and acidic with no funk noticeable. Other flavors from the nose are pretty much buried, or at the very least way less distinct. Dark fruit, and vanilla/oak in the finish stand out.

Mouthfeel - Pretty nice feel to it, has the light smoothness of the 'porter' base beer and the carbonation is kept in check. Sourness forces this to be a sipper for sure. You get the feeling this is in the higher realm of ABV for sours but not much of the nearly 10% is obvious.

Overall - The scent delivers what's advertised and hints towards greatness, the taste unfortunately didn't live up. It's a good beer, but I found the sourness too overbearing to mingle with the porter base and whiskey barrel. 375ml solo was quite fatiguing. It will be pretty interesting to see how this ages.
