Many thx to Thijs for opening this bottle

Poured into a westy 12 tastinglass

A - hazy brown to amber, thin tan head, small amount of bubbles.
the red color really comes out when held up to a light

S - sour and bourbon vanilla, with sweet malt to even the two out

T - You get a bit of sour up front, then a little booze, then oak and bourbon. Very tasty, all of the flavors are big, but very balanced.

M - Medium to heavy bodied, full carbonation.

O - This is a really good

12oz bottle purchased at Hair of the Dog last year on my trip to Portland. Best After Date of 4/30/13 and today is after enough. Pours a murky dark mahogany color with a very thin ring of head. Some lacing. The aroma is very boozey with some cherries, dark fruits, brown sugar, and earth. Some oak. The taste is boozey with sour cherries. Malts, dark fruits, earth and oak. Caramel and bourbon at the end with more tartness. Kind of like a sour old ale. Thick mouthfeel. The Sherry and Pinot Noir barrels are the most dominant flavors. I heard this was a hot mess fresh so that's why I decided to wait. Overall, glad I got to have it but its not something I could drink often.
