New batch E!045. Amazing. Had it years back when cheif was still there and was amazing then. But Ididnt remember it being this good. Slightly sour and a bit fruity with a some vanilla taste in the finish complement of the burboun barrels. A very complex beer and overall just awesome. One of the best beers I've had in a while. Right up there with brute, le blue and the original ithaca 10!

Shared a bottle with a few friends. Old Habit pours a dark reddish-orange color with a small head. The nose contains brown sugar, oak, cherry and rye. A very interesting beer so far and we have not even gotten to the taste ! Taste has spices, such as cinnamon and vanilla, along with plums, cherries and roasted malts. Mouthfeel is medium, some carbonation. The finish is a tad bitter, but still pleasant. Overall, a unique beer done well that I was glad to have had the opportunity to try.

A thanks to JLindros for sharing this bottle. 2008 Vintage (infected). Reviewed from notes.
A - Poured a ruddy cloudy garnet hue with a nice three finger head with tons of side lacing.
S - Aromas of barrel and sour/funk infection. Yep, this 2008 batch is definitely infected but smells nice and tasty. Almost like a funky lambic.
T - Sharp bitterness and slight metallic taste with light funky flavours. Off funk, as opposed to barnyard funk. There is slight rye and cherries but mostly just infection.
M - Mouthfeel isnt all that bad but there is more of that sharp, metallic feel and taste that lingers.
O - Overall this isnt that bad considering its infected. It makes for an interesting brew.
