Had with a year of age on this one.

L -- Pours a moderately hazed deep nectarine/ruby body with an average sized off-white head produced with moderate pour. Some retention and lacing
S -- Grapey musk, apple, cherry, cranberry, raspberry, tamari, and funk
T -- Super oaky and winey. Getting some hints of apple cider vinegar, currant, cherry, and dark roasty malts
F -- Like with Supplication, the mouthfeel is lightly fluffy and smooth drinking. The sourness is obviously there (a little more than with Supp), but its not overbearing
O -- High ABV wilds can be pretty..... wild! But this one finds a nice medium between the maltiness of a high ABV dark ale and the crazy funkiness that makes it what it is. Better without the bottom sediment mixed in

Excellent musky vinous character, well-controlled sourness, elements of overripe cherry, grape, and blackberry tied together with an oaky backbone. A great sour. A 4.5? I don't know about that, but one of the best I've had in the style
