Appearance: Deep brown glass glows a bit but has no clarity. Halo of tan tiny bubbles holds but doesn't really lace.
Smell: Dark malt extract with a sour cherry twang. A powerful nose gives you bang for buck.
Taste: A real kick in the teeth this one. Sour brett cherry bourbon malt bomb on aisles 4-9. As I get somewhat accustom to the tidal wave, a lot of smokey charred barrel starts to come in, as well as a heady alcoholic slap.
Mouthfeel: Cask to still carbonation drags this back a bit. There's plenty of body to support a little fizz.
Overall: Sour beers don't sit well with me. Love the taste, don't like the indigestion later. Still, was glad to get a nose and taste of this monster. If the Sour doesn't scare you, it's an experience you shouldn't pass up.
Thanks to Illudium for the sample!

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.

This beer was a deep mahogany brownish color. Poured on tap and very little residual lace, almost non-existent. The aroma included hints of leather, and raisin, but the predominate smell of wet paper and whiskey.
It's taste was acidic and sour to start but finished very clean. Hard to describe how it the alcohol hits your palate, They taste is there, then faded. For the amount of alcohol in this beer, I could not taste it. Well blended
Drinkable from a well balanced abv point of view, but underwhelming on the taste factor. This beer was incredibly thin and underwhelming. After a few sips this beer clearly warmed my belly up.
If you are into freaky, sour, aged beers, then this might be something you will like. I'll probably never reach for it again. For the number of different beers used to make this blended selection, one would think that it might be a bit more complex. Not so much. I think they missed the mark on this one.
