Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.
Pours a dark purple, almost black color thats reminiscent of eggplant. Opaque with a thin, half finger off-white head that immediately settles. No lacing.
Vinous dark fruit aroma with some earthy oak and a strong acetone presence. A bit too much solvent/nail polish for my liking but here's also some funky yeast and wild bugs counter things a but. Lots of dark grape, currant and blueberry but the acetic vinegar is a big turnoff.
Wow, the acetone is much sharper and prominent than in the nose. Really abrasive and acidic with tons of solvent flavor killing off the wild bugs, oak and blueberry. After a while the dark fruit notes come too the forefront with some blueberry, dark grape and currant. Still, it's way too strong on the acetic acid/acetone/solvent flavors. Pretty much undrinkable after a few ounces.

Poured into wine glass.
A - Nice blue-black color, with blue around the edges. Small fizzy bubbles. Coke-like appearance.
S - Blueberries, some sourness. Has mellowed over time as it has aged several months in keg.
T - Blueberries, fairly substantial sourness, dark fruits. Mild sweetness. Very satisfying.
M - Medium body. Just a touch of creaminess to make it go down more slowly.
O - This beer purportedly ages well with less vinegary and acidic taste than when fresh. Smooth, fruity, delicious.

A - Dark chocolate with blueberry accents. No head or foam.
S - Blueberry pie, lactic acid, slight acetone. Tart nose to it.
T - Balsamic vinegar with a slight funky, almost gym sock presence to it. Barely any blueberry but lots of acetone.
MF - Tart with tons of carbonation to it. Good funk and dry finish
O -I didn't enjoy this one too much as the gym sock presence with the acetone threw it off.
