Ok this may be totally my fault... it is Sept 2018 and I am drinking a 2015-16 beer. Gorgeous fairly clear rich copper pour with 1 finger white head. Aroma is nice caramel, slightly malty but with sense of fruity esters. Taste - I think an age thing - starts slightly malty but turns quickly to tart - cherry, vinous - leaning to sour. Mouthfeel creamy - slightly foamy, yet carbonation is muted. Probably to be fair should try fresh but this was not great once started actually tasting - if you are a sour fan then age this and enjoy.

A: Moderate rich malts, coupled with fruity esters of dried fruits, plums.

A: Deep amber color, good clarity, with a moderately dense white head with adequate retention.

T: Moderately malty with a light caramel character, lightly sweet with moderate esters, quite clean.

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer is smooth and not harsh.

O: Solid; the beer has a solid malty and fruit ester aroma and flavor and is quite clean. The beer could be even better if the malt was a little more rich and prominent.

You can really taste the burnt caramel flavors from the Stein process. The smell is complex . A really interesting beer.

Winter 2014-2015 vintage.

Pours a hazy crimson-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of caramel, toffee, and candied fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, nut, caramel, and toffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, but the smells I am getting from this one are slightly better.

Serving type: bottle.
