Bottle. Poured flat and syrupy. Dark brown. Looks like a sherry. Aroma is very over stimulating. Sourness and balsamic dressing. Leathery. Tart yet sugary. Some acetone. Nose is dynamic. Need to cup a handful of arugula and toss it into this beer because it's salad dressing. Balsamic, acid, dark fruit. Oakiness is like a steady current. A big, crazy, sour Old Ale. The body is viscous and prefers to linger. It's highly tannic. Warms the cheeks. A very unique beer. I enjoyed it!
