This is a review for batch 1, or whatever they called the batch that was released at SAVOR two years ago.

A: Murky brown body settled down to a two-finger, off-white head with big bubbles. Some foam has little bubbles, this one's got big bubbles. Pretty good lacing

S: Musty, muted cherries.

T: Fairly similar to an oud bruin. Starts off with surprisingly bright, tart cherries, along with some vinous notes. The middle becomes somewhat bitter, with mineral water and a bit of basement funk. Towards the end, I occasionally get a hint of chocolate or roast, which works well. Not much of an aftertaste.

F: Good balance of carbonation; body is light but also creamy, which is a combination I don't feel like I get too often.

O: I really can't remember what this beer tasted like fresh, and I haven't had it since a week or two after the SAVOR where they gave it out. It's a pretty good beer. Not overly complex, but enjoyable and drinkable.

Complex yet very clean and simple. Reminds me of the FFF/New Belgium Gratzer if it were barrel aged, but with a little more everything on it...especially the nose of a sour. I savored this beer as it slowly warmed up to discover nice depth on most of the character notes. Would love to see this happen again.

Weird beer. Dark, thick, smooth. It reminds me of a double bock more than anything. Don't get the "wild" ale aspect, but overall it's very drinkable, tasty as hell. Worth the money.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: dark opaque brown, but essentially black at a glance; finger of light brown foam on top

S: rich brown malts and woodsy barrels supplemented with dim fruity notes, and suggestions of the wine and bourbon barrels used

T: incredible array of flavors - rich molasses sweetness weaves through the wine and bourbon highlights; brown and roasty malts converge, producing fruits like fig and date, and hearty breads; accents suggesting spices

M: medium-weight, smoothly gliding across the tongue; barrel vapors caress the roof; moderate carbonation; effortless drinking

O: this is the third brewing of the beer, and not having had the previous two, I can tell you that there is nothing wild about this beer - it is more reminiscent of a rich Imperial-style brown meets a strong dark Belgian ale (though the stylings are more "American" than "Belgian"), but it truly transcends styles. If you're expecting a wild ale, you may be wildly disappointed, but if you're bracing for a barrel-aged brown, you'll be more pleased. I was absolutely stunned by the ale, and highly recommend it. The reviews aren't so hot, but this may be reflective of the two previous vintages - and also the difficulty in categorization.
