Pour is extremely dark purple with a white head and purple hue. Nose has a tart fleshy raspberry, more malt body then the other sours of the night, chocolate malt and a bit biscuity. Faint plastic acetic note in there. Taste is much sweeter, a ton of fleshy raspberry, a bit too sweet, still has an interesting maltiness, chocolate malts and a touch of roast. Finish is sweet, berry sugar flavors, creamy feel, a hint grainy in the finish with the start of an acetic burn in back.

375ml bottle thanks to the person I trustee for. Dark brown, minimal head. Aroma is a touch of malt sweetness, vinegar, not bad. Flavor is nice, touch if chocolate, sour, fruity but the raspberries aren't very distinct. There is only the most mild hint of the whiskey barrel. Overall this is one if the better 2013 cellar reserve beers but still not worth the money in my opinion.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at his tasting.

2013 vintage. Bottled 9/2013.

Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Small chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is sour with malt, raspberry, acidic, wood, and slight whiskey aromas. Taste is much the same with sour raspberry, acidic, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a tasty mix of raspberry and whiskey barrel aged aspects all around.

Serving type: bottle.
