22 ounce bottle - $10.49 at Lucky's in Woodstock, Georgia.
Bottling Date: 2/18/2013.
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, near black body with a tall, surging, medium tan head. While it does quickly settle, it doesn't quite evaporate on you.
Smell: Sweetish, malty with varied, churning notes of roasted barley, caramel, baker's chocolate, toasted bread crusts, and nuts all cut by a jutting tartish fruitiness that, when co-mingled with the sweetish tones, has a quality like a good quality balsamic vinegar. I'm on-board with this one.
Taste: Roast, caramel, and some noted nuttiness with a fair degree of sweetness, but, there's a very quick jolt (just like in the nose, BANG, it's there) of tart fruitiness akin to a gulp of sangria. Interspersed with an agreeable bourbon barrel quality. A little earthiness underneath it all, with a low tone of black pepper. A little late-arriving vanilla and rye. Takes on the vinegary quality on the back half and into the semi-sweet, smooth, agreeably warming finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: A pleasing beer and another quality release from the good folks at Shmaltz.
Serving type: bottle

This poured a dark cranberry red to almost brown that gave it a purplish hue in the bar. The head was a tightly knit cap of dense brownish foam.
The aroma is tart, a tad sour and full of balsamic funk. A good amount of sour cherry can be had along with some barrel wood.
The flavor is well matched between barrel and sour. The taste is tangy and tart with cherry, vinegar and sour. The barrel manifests itself in a bit of oak and a touch of vanilla for sweetness. This taste profile compliments the sour cherry very well.
The feel is a bit puckering but not over done and adds to the personality of this ale.
This is listed as a strong ale but this certainly could mask for a well done European Flanders, Oud Bruen or any other sour style ale.
Serving type: on-tap
