Bottled on 11/22/13.

Pours a translucent reddish dark brown. The 1/4 inch off-white head quickly disappears completely and leaves very faint spots of lace.

The smell is of barnyard funk, assorted dark fruits and faint alcohol.

The taste is of tart currant, dark grapes and unripe cherries.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation.

An amazing sour brown ale with delicious tart dark fruit aromas and flavors with Cabernet Sauvignon accents. World class.
