375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Dark brown body. Medium off-white head.

Smell - Very weird. A dark malt funk. Not sure how else to describe. Nutty, maybe?

Taste - This is weird, too. Kinda nutty. Maybe some chocolate. Gets sour and a little vinegary. Woody, too.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy body. Well carbonated.

Overall - What a weird flavor. Not sure I dig it.

Another thanks ot rudzud for sharing.

No real head, super dark molasses brown beer faint brown light.

Nose is big brown soured malts, nice tart fruity almost cherry like, nice vanilla barrel, little bourbon note, nice acidic bite and lacto and other souring agents. Faint flash of funky cheese note. Faint booze as well.

Taste starts with sweet malts, sour brown malts, tangy funk, little funk, lacto and maybe pedio funk. Then done vanilla barrel, little bourbon note, sour cherries little tangy fruit. Then little booze, warmth and taste. Flemmy syrupy finish, tangy, acidic bite, bit more cherry and barrel notes, lacto sour feel.

Mouth is heavy, syrupy, flemmy, boozy, acidic, decent carb though.

Overall not bad, decent souring and fruit, bit to flemmy and acidic, decent barrel, tasty but not great.
