2017 bottle

A: Pours basically black with a very tall brown head. Excellent head retention and plenty of fluffy chunks of lacing.

S: Well, interesting aroma. Black currants of course, with an overripe sourness and also sweetness to it. Some other indistinct dark fruits typical of quads but the currants really stand out here.

T: Sweet black currants up front, turning sour after a few seconds. Sweet and sour fruitiness, really nice. Other dark fruits join in, primarily raisin and maybe a little fig? The black currant flavor carries through the entire range of taste, sweet and sour and never far away. Touch of dark bread in the finish and then hints of spice (mainly pepper) in the finish and aftertaste. Black currants everywhere, lingering forever. It's even salty in the aftertaste...somehow.

M: Fairly heavy, smooth.

O: Now this is a sour I can get behind. Great contrast of sweet and sour flavors. Good quad base that's unfortunately mostly obscured. Great smooth mouthfeel and no sign of the ABV. Excellent.
