Both times I have tried this beer it was horribly acetic with an acetone aroma.

A: deep cherry wood brown, no head at all, no lacing, liquid is thick and clings to glass,
S: pepper, vinegar, and a very sharp funk, and an almost harsh maltiness and a prominent woody note
T: cherry, grape, red wine vinegar, a sharp malt character, pleasant but confusing (you know it is malt but how you know this in this case is unclear), there is another side to the maltiness as well (an oaky sweetness), I think I even get some grapefruit here
M: sticky, reminds me very much of an unpasteurized juice (like acai berry juicy, very thick)
O: phenomenal, this beer commands attention, I was actually doing something else before writing this (having had this beer before but not having reviewed it) and upon tasting it I immediately stopped what I was doing to write down notes on the beer. a must try, seek it out
