Notes: A super limited imperial brown ale aged for 6 months in one of our "magic" barrels, then another 3 months in a rum barrel with an insane amount of sweet Oregon cherries. Pucker up with Maceo and taste the Funk!

I am not a fan of farmhouse ales and yet when I have one offered I accept. Sour to nose, tart on palate and hint of cherries on back. 6/27/17

750ml bottle poured into a tulip

A- pours deep Amber-brown color with a small fizzy white head that disappears after a while

S- smells like a cherry pie, molasses-like rum barrel, lacto tartness and earthy oak

T- flavors of cherry pie burst out with undertones of cranberry and a rum barrel sweetness, hints of lacto tartness and earthy wood, the finish gives more cherry pie with some spicy elements on the linger

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a foamy dry finish

O- tastes like a liquid cherry pie, absolutely delicious

thanks to kevin for this one!

smells amazing! great cherry and nice acidic. you can tell this will be a treat

taste is even better than the nose! great sourness and tasty. tons flavor and some slight sweetness on the back en

feel is perfect, doesn't feel like a 9% beer. medium bodied for a stout

overall this is for real. those magic barrels that they have are something special for sure lol

Slightly better than Cascade's Sang Noir (both of which add cherries).

Pours a dark brownish red with half finger head that dissolves quickly. Aroma is strong vinegar. It smells very sour. I also get cherries and caramel and earthy notes from the brown ale. The taste is explosive. I get lots of dark cherries, but the brown ale brings chocolate, caramel, and earthy notes to add complexity. The rum barrels aren't center stage, but the vanilla and spice is present in the background. Mouth feel is intense and full with perfectly balanced carbonation. One of the best sours I've had.
