Pours a hazy brown with minimal head. A brisk pour yielded a moderate, big-bubble foam, but this was more a product of a very aggressive pour, rather than any genuine head.

Aroma is interesting -- funk, barnyard, fruit, malt, caramel and as it warms, booze. The flavor brings a lot of these same notes. Sour, tart, fruit, caramel, vinegar, malt and a fairly healthy booze presence. The sourness on this beer doesn't ride the sides of the tongue like a typical sour -- rather, it's a sort of tart bitterness that rest on the center rear of the tongue. Mouthfeel is fine.

Interesting beer. I felt the booze was a bit more prominent than I would like. Perhaps it's because my bottle was relatively young? I think this is one that could be aged for years -- I may buy another and throw it in the cellar for a few years. Really interesting, dynamic brew. Something about it made me think of Consecration -- but this has a lot more going on, with a thicker syrupy mouthfeel. I felt like it was a bit unnecessarily abrasive however. I'm really interested to see if that changes some with age.
