Bottle pour for Best Damn Night Of The Barrels held at The Beer Company in San Diego, CA.

Bottled 8/17/11.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, grain, and wine aromas. Taste is much the same with a super sour fruity wine flavor 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 that is tasty and quite sour.

Decent sour, I sort of enjoyed this one. Beer is amber / brown with a white head, low retention, some lacing, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is oaky, sour, cherry, red wine. Lactic mostly.

Beer is fruity with a tannic finish, nice oak, decent amount of fruit left in here. An interesting beer.

A - Head is quick to disappear. Dark beige/tan in color. Body is a deep root beer/brown color. No lacing since foam disappeared so quick.

S - A lot of red wine and sweet. Some earthy raspberries and lemon. Not very aromatic. Green apple.

T - So much earth and funk and not enough sour. Classic horseblanket, but way too much of it. The funk hits you in the back of your mouth. Little bing cherry flavor. Some alcohol.

M - Puckering and a little drying. Nice carbonation and a pretty good body.

O - A little heavy on the funk side and not enough sweet. Sour is a little lacking too. A nice little beer, but not spectacular.
