12.7 oz bottle, 3-4 years old. Pours hazy amber brown with no carbonation (bad bottle seal?).

The aroma is tart and sour vinous fruit with some sweetness.

The flavor is sweet sugary fruit with lots of tart sourness followed by some maltiness and some slightly harsh leathery alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with no carbonation.

Overall, there's lots of sweet fruity sourness, but no carbonation and some odd notes.

Buddy brought to bottle share. Great nose. Sour fruits. Tart. Nice. Taste was decent. Very fruity. There was zero carbonation. Also, it was very dry, but that was ok. The lack of carb, though, was detractor.

Bottle: Poured a clear deep brown color ale with zero head or any lacing. Aroma of stale caramel malt with some residual brown sugar notes is more or less pleasant. Taste is also dominated by stale caramel malt notes with light barrel-aged notes and some gross brown sugar residual notes. Body is light for style with zero carbonation and no real apparent alcohol notes. I either got a bad bottle or I just really didn’t appreciate the zero carbonation and stale notes associated with this beer.
