Had the pentagram at groveland tap last night for te anniversary party. Second sour in my book, and still not sure what to think. I can agree that it seemed very young and disjointed at the finish. Poured a nice murky brown/reddish with a nose full of rasnerry, black licorice, and funk.
Taste was sour, tart, and begging for rich food to cut the sour. Overall was happy to get to try it and lookn forward to getting a few bottles of the blend "5" at release.
Serving type: on-tap

My review follows feloniousmonk's rather closely because I found it hard to explain this one.
I would like to thank Surly for making such an interesting and wonderful beer. For me to sum this brew up in so few words would do it a disservice, but I can firmly say that this is one of the most interesting beers that I have had in a long time.
First smell was raisin, wood, grape, a bit of chocolate, and something a bit off. First pour was a muddy chocolate, with a caramel head that quickly dissipated into a tighter, flat, ring around the glass. First taste was overwhelming in the best way possible.
The first thing that I tasted was a mish-mash of fruits, wood, chocolate, and a hint of coffee, all wrapped up in sour. After I settled into my first glass, a lot of the overpowering flavors calmed and I was left with a beautiful beer. The taste stuck around, and the carbonation relaxed my stomach.
Thanks Surly, I appreciate it.
