Pours a deep ruby with a thick 2 finger head that leaves good lacing.
Nose is dark fruits, soured grapes, some sweetness and some nice funk going on here.
Taste is figs, raisins, plums, some sweetness and a nice tart finish with a little bitterness. As is warms, some chocolate comes through.
Mouth feel is creamy with some medium carbonation.
A nice dark ale with some sour funk, though not overly sour. This observation from one who is not a big sour fan. Another great beer from Jolly Pumpkin.

Green capped 750 ml bottle from Gator Beverage, Batch 165, 167, 172, 174, dated 10/23/13 poured into Unibroue tulip on 5/12/14. Pours opaque brown that turns a bright ruby color when held up in the light. Big fluffy off white head that lingers for a good while. Aroma is sour cherries, some dark fruit, light spice, oak. I was expecting something different but this smells excellent. The flavor is chocolate covered cherries, light spices, a hint of balsamic vinegar, dry oaky finish. Sweet around the edges of the tongue. Medium bodied with effervescent carbonation. Goes down pretty easy. I really didn’t know what to expect from this brew, but it is really nice and seems pretty unique. I would have this again.
