Poured into snifter. Dark purple/black with a sustained 1/8th inch head. Aroma: figs, plums, dark grapes, alcohol. Almost smells like an expensive merlot but with some barrel notes and wild yeast funk. Taste: slightly mouth puckering with tons of dark fruit and smooth wood undertones. The high abv is present but feels appropriate. As each sip ended I got a nice combo of dark grains and sour funk. Very enjoyable beer. I think this beer could turn a wine lover on to big, funky barrel aged beers. Wish I bought another to cellar.

There is an obvious cherry character to this sour. But the blend makes this a nice balance. Well done.

The nose is fruity and gives you the impression of even more tartness than is really present.

This beer is a nice combination of sour, barrel characteristics, and a little acidity.
