3.61/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a pint glass. Bottleneck label says Batch No. 001/999 and Bottling date 3/6/2012.
A- Pours a full-on opaque black color with a 1/4 inch tan head that fails to retain long before it shrinks away to a paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and a partial sheet of surface foam. Lacing barely hangs on long.
S- Intense burst of raisin, almond and pecan. Some sweetness in the context of molasses and syrup.
T- Heavy, deep booze bite in the front with a sweet start and a bitter finish. So, right off the bat, I'm getting the Jewbelation, Lenny's RIPA and Messiah nut brown. Loads of syrupy malt mesh with the alcohol and slam down on the palate. A lot of tastes going on at once but not necessarily complex enough to achieve much depth of flavor.
M- Sluggish and viscous with low carbonation fueling that sentiment. Syrup continues to be the word that pops up as the beer leaves plenty of residue behind on the tongue.
O- Definitely a sipper, and definitely an experiment. Just a bit too heavy and strong for the ABV and kind of all over the place in terms of flavor balance.

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
