On tap at Pizza Port Strong Ale 2010

A: Hazed vibrant amber. Creamy beige head.

S: Moderate acetic presence, notes of cherries, grapes. Vinegar is definitely strong. Some lactic notes. Light toffee. Some wet leather. Vinous impression.

T: Toffee, lactic sourness, moderate acetic presence. A clash of  wet leather, bitterness, vinegar, toffee, and strange funk. Very odd. Warring flavors.

M: Medium body, moderate carb, sticky mouthfeel.

Overall: nice aroma, bad flavor. Probably just a random barrel that got infected.

Serving type: on-tap

On-tap at Strong Ale

A: The pour is a darkish amber color with a finger's worth of khaki colored foam.

S: The nose is sort of what I expected from a bretted barleywine. It's extremely dry with lots of oak, but a lot of piney hops as well. A mild grassy funk, and despite the dryness, there still is a bit of maltiness.

T: Although I knew it was coming, the combination of intense dryness along with fairly powerful bitter hoppiness was just a bit...strange. There is a mild malt character as well as some dark fruit notes.

M: The body is medium with a fairly high level of carbonation for a barleywine and a dry, bitter finish.

D: Certainly an interesting beer. It was nice to try, but I'm not entirely sure how much of this I would want to drink in a sitting.

Serving type: on-tap
