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.

Really excited to try this one, had never seen or heard of it before but a beer that's made up of seven different aged beers sounds GLORIOUS! Hopefully it tastes half as good as it sounds. This is the 2014 vintage
A: very very dark crimson brown, looks black until you hold it up to a light, with a thin quickly dissipating light khaki brown head.
S: Aromas of very strong sour ales, can't get much more than that, maybe once it warms...
T: initially very sour. The mid-palate of this beer is where I get kind sidetracked and the after taste is where I get completely lost - not in a bad way but in a way that makes it hard to describe accurately what is going on in this beast. There is some strong maltiness at least for a sour, not overpowering but pretty noticeable for this style of beer. waiting a bit for is not a bad idea with this one. picking up a slight dried fruit aftertaste, raisins or dates. There is also some metallic taste to this in the mid-palate perhaps from the yeast strain used. Great sour factors here but subsides after 4 or 5 sips, then there is a pleasant sweetness to it, unfortunately the rye from r.i.p.a. and the bourbon whiskey is lost in translation.
O.A. : I wish there was a little more complexity in the beer for all the different ales that were used to mix this one, still very good to try if you like unique and sour aged beers.

Pours a maroonish amber with an off white head. Aroma is dark fruits, a touch of roastiness, minimal rye spiciness, and minor bourbon barrel presence. Flavor threw me for a loop from what I was expected based on the aroma, in a very good way. Sweet and slightly tart raspberry, a little pitted dark fruit, sourdough bread, a toached of roastiness and chocolate, rye, and a touch of bourbon barrel. Medium bodied mouthfeel, with nothing unique about it. Overall, solid and enjoyable beer.
