Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with dark roasted malt, cocoa, acidic, and funk aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour cocoa and funk flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but could use more carbonation in my opinion.
