500 ml bottle into a 10 oz taster glass

Appearance: Pours a dark brown, basically black once in the glass. 1 finger of a brown head that dissipates to a thick collar. Body is opaque.

Smell: Red wine, oak, roasted malt, black currant, leather, mild spicy, floral yeast character.

Taste: Medium sourness is detectable right away. This yields to big vinous notes, dark berries, burnt malt, oak, and a smokiness that lingers into the finish and aftertaste. There's some earthy funkiness that comes out as the beer warms, but it's extremely mild.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a soft, almost creamy mouthfeel and medium fine carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall: Another good bottle release from Tired Hands. Worth seeking out.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Light fizzy head, dark head, no light dark pretty much black.

Nose sour bacteria, funk and tart fruit, some brown malt sweetness, candy malts and caramel, sour dark malt like an oud bruin. Mild toasty oak.

Taste is sweet and tart, sour brown malts, oud bruin all over, with some vanilla barrel and toasted oak, creamy like, etc. Bacteria lacto funk with creamy lacto city, sour brown malts, etc. Nothing else really. Finish sticky flemmy, sour brown malts and lacto funk, booze all over the back end.

Mouth is med to heavier bod, decent carb, flemmy.

Shared with JLindros. I think this is batch 2.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a very dark almost black hire with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps and a thin halo.

S - Aromas of vinous wine barrels, funky yeast, lacto maybe, dark malts, light sourness.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Darker malts, loads lacto, light sourness, the malts are strong with loads of rich malts and light funk.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, a bit thin.

O - Overall this beer was an enormous let down, light funk, messy.

Serving type: bottle

A bit of coffee roast, very mild acidity and funk. Pretty decent.

Appearance: Pours fudge brown and is capped by an impressive head that leaves a web of lacing behind

Smell: Caramel, sour cherries, lemon and earthy tones

Taste: Sour cherries and lemon, on the front end, with the caramel building in the middle; some chocolate and coffee elements appear, after the swallow, with a vinous aspect in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A wide variety of flavors in this beer with both sweet and tart elements as well as the hints of chocolate and coffee; excellent
