4.1/5  rDev -1.7%

12oz brown bottle with a bottled on date.

Look: Deep brownish burgundy hue, good lacing

Smell: Big tartness, wood, mild char, cherries, faint rum, mild spice, faint leather

Taste: Sour throughout, very woody, subtle rum, warming alcohol, green peppercorn, chicory, lemon pith, brown sugar, hint of barrel char, rose water, dry finish

This is one spectacular sour ale, without a doubt a sipper though specially the strength. Great to finally see these beers come to market because Todd and I have been at the brewery when the are pulling nails if you know what I mean.

bottle pour @ star bar, #5 in the barrel aged bike ride

Burgundy body - extremely wood-forward, sour cherries, molasses, tart lactic funk. Over 10% and barely noticeable - rum barrels provide interesting flavours though I'd be hard-pressed to detect true rum flavour. Definitely a favorite of the day - tasty stuff
