Well, I thought I was going to fade into one set of shadows and jump out of the sun in another venue. That being youtube. Turns out the teeter is about to totter and I'm postulating getting back into the brewsings game with some reviews, pictures, rants, etc.
Please stay tuned while I figure out my new direction.
Once that is established, I will report back with a thorough root cause analysis and corrective action plan.

I want to drink this, but the damned cork won't come out.
Admittedly, I'm nervous. I love Pt5. I adore the barreled version. On top of that, I'm a newbie when it comes to sours but I am trying to be openminded and learning to appreciate that style of beer. Worries about ruining a good thing abound.
Appearance: cola, but less fizzy. The head has an odd look and what carbonation there may be is hard to pick up. I've already got a bad feeling.
Aroma: vinegar and soy sauce bomb. That is first and foremost. Wafting though that there are hints of dark fruits and some roast as well.
Taste: again, the folks in Marshall dropped a bomb on me. It took me many sips (half the bottle) to adjust my palate to this. Eventually I started to pick up the Plead the 5th that I know and love. Roasty, malty, pruney goodness being suffocated by whatever yeast strain they used to achieve that wild ale tart.
Mouthfeel: sticky, cloying. Not very carbonated so it hangs around a lot.
Overall: definitely a WILD experience. No idea what the abv is but seems high. 3.5/5
