My man Kiddwhiz hooked this up, thanks man! Poured from bottle to Duvel tulip. Bottle dated 8/17/2011. The beer pours a deep rich black color with clack edges, only towards the end of the glass did I see a deep mahogany hue when the beer was thin, otherwise very dark. A nice 2 finger light tan head with good retention and lacing. The aroma is prevalent the second you crack the bottle and builds with intensity as the beer warms. Tart and sour upfront with hints of fruit: apples and a hint of cherry, a distinct oaky zinfandel tone that works well with the fruit. A hint of funk on the back end as well. Smells great. The flavor starts very much the same with an immediate sour tartness on the tongue. The apple and cherry fruit flavors are more pronounced and work well with the sourness. The oak zinfandel is less prevalent but provides a gentle tone that lasts throughout the beer. Finishes dry and sour with a lingering sour apple flavor. A thin caramel malt flavor and mild bitterness accompanies the more dominant theme of the beer. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall, this beer was a treat and a half. I wish I could find more to enjoy, extremely recommended.

Bottle pour for Best Damn Night Of The Barrels held at The Beer Company in San Diego, CA.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, grain, and wine aromas. Taste is much the same with a super sour fruity wine flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and quite sour.
