Batch 001 on tap at Capone's
A: Pours a very dark brown with a cherry hue. The head is ivory to tan colored, and leaves a thick lacing on the walls of my glass.
S: Funk up front, leaning towards barnyard, not much leather. The signature 'Tion aroma follows the funk. The currant and raisins wrap up the nose and give it a nice balance.
T: The funk and sour are muted compared to the nose. There fruit flavors are muted a little, but what has seemed to have faded the most over time is the funkiness. More recent batches have a more pronounced flavor.
M: Medium bodied, with nice prickly carbonation, and a lingering sourness.
D: This is a great beer, but not as good as fresher batches, IMO.
Serving type: on-tap

A - Looks like blackberry soda.
S - Can definitely sense the currants and Cab barrels. Little worried it wont have a strong ale taste though.
T - Yeah, in my honest opinion it's a little lacking in the beer/ale flavor. It tastes like a dry soda. It's not bad, very drinkable, but I would love to try a stout aged in Cab barrels. I'm not a huge sour advocate, but if that is your thing, try this! You will like.
M - Very carbonated. Adds to the soda feel. No head. Reminds me of a Lindemans.
O - Obviously a very high quality offering but not for everyone. If you are into Lindemans or sours this is a must try.
