From the pics it looks like a nice formation of acetobacter have taken hold. Probably really good vinegar though, I keep a small jug of vinegar/mother to pour old bottles of unused/not drank wine into, it's developing nicely.

Just sampled it.

Tasted like it had 3% alcohol, almost sweet but then slightly vinegary.

Not to extreme in any specific flavor, almost reminds me of the taste of cooking wine (the stuff with the salt added)

You should definitely cook something with it, and then tell us all about it.
