poured 22oz bottle into teku. Drink after 8/2013

A - It pours a dirty ruby with an off white 2.5 finger head that fizzes. Fades quickly into a collar and leaves behind a few traces of lace.

S - Faint cherries, dark tart fruit, and red wine. Some oak and brown sugar round it out.

T - Red wine and oak seem to be the most prevalent with some medicinal cherry flavor. Not very sour and only somewhat tart. Dark fruits and brown sugar fill in on the finish. There is a booziness to this beer.

M - Carbonated and light bodied, very dry.

O - This was good, but I didn't like as much as most. A bit too much red wine and the cherry flavor was medicinal for me. Good, but not exceptional.

22 oz bottle from 2012 bottling. Says best after 8/2013. Aged since 11/2012. Poured into Belgian ale glass directly from aging refrigerator so served around 52 degrees.

A) Reddish to cordovan, moderate carbonation bubbles. 2/3 finger head when poured, not very much retention, thin ring left.

S) Sour cherries, mustiness from yeast, maybe some citus or lemongrass

T) Very smooth and very complex. Cherries and citrus, not too much funk at all, not very sour at beginning. Finish is sweeter. Really well done.

M) Medium to full bodied, not as much carbonation as indicated by looking at it, really no evidence of the 11.4% alcohol content. This is really well-done.

Russian River Supplication has been surpassed. This is masterful. Will have to grab more than one bottle the next time they release.
