750 mL bottle. Pours deep brown. Smells of nutty malts and dark fruit acidity. Tastes of toasty, nutty malts. Dark fruits, like cherries. Vinous and becomes close to vinegar. Finish is oaky and toasty. High carbonation. I liked it. I was in the minority.

750ml cork and caged bottle. Snifter glass. Dark murky brown body, one finger white head, not much retention or lacing. Smells like a quad, sweet caramel and a bit of yeasty mineral and toffee. Mild acetic acidity, very muddled without much of a dominant flavour. Fairly bland. Medium bodied, decent carbonation, but a weird sweet and sour aftertaste on the backend. As figured, this combination didn't work too well on my palate.
