Bottle thanks to Lauren. Pours a dark murky crimson with a very slowly advancing ring of bubbles, fighting their way upward through a thick, dark swamp. Nose is a strange collage of burnt brown sugar, leather, fermented apples, sweaty socks. Thick flavor profile of massive, wet barrel, wet leather, caramelized brown sugar, finish is all fermented apple and sour cherry. Heavy and kind of oppressive, major alcohol heat on the finish.
To my friend this was disgusting throughout, though I can see the merit in it to an extent. That being said, it's a mish-mash of flavors and styles that aren't very harmonious or pleasant on any level. I'm pretty surprised at how much the brett influenced this. It reminds me of McKenzie's barrel work from 2009-2010. If you like massive barrel influence and slightly sour old ales with burning alcohol heat throughout, seek this out immediately.

From 11/20/13 notes. Have been holding onto a bottle yourefragile picked up for me at the release for a long time after hearing bad things, in hopes time would help the booze fade. 750ml bottle poured into my Cigar City snifter.
a - Pours a murky reddish brown color with no head or carbonation evident. Doesn't look too good.
s - Smells of alcohol, caramel malts, dates, figs, sweet dark fruits, solvent, and lightly sour dark fruits. Sweet and sour, and not a very good mix. Too much alcohol, though not as offensive as I was expecting.
t - This is more what I was expecting (and hoping was not the case). Tastes of alcohol, solvent, sour dark fruits, sugar, harsh bourbon, vinegar, and molasses. Taste what I imagine cleaning products taste like, and vinegar. Very bad tasting.
m - Medium body and no carbonation. High alcohol heat in the taste and extremely harsh.
o - Overall I was hoping it wouldn't be as bad as I had heard it was, but it was just awful. The look and mouthfeel are not great, the nose is worse, and the taste is downright awful, full or harsh alcohol and sugar. I like boozy and sweet beers more than most people and this was a complete drainpour; I couldn't choke down more than 5oz.'s of this one. Would never have again.
