Draft at Destihl, quick review from notes. Served in a small flared pilsner glass.

Reddish orange brown, ruddy and murky tone with some visible carbonation and tan foam on the surface. Pretty good retention, all said and done, with noticeable lacing in the glass.

Aroma is pretty nondescript, the main letdown of this beer.

Tastes like a mellow Flanders Red, brewed with dark chocolate, raisins, and currants. Definitely some bitter chocolate and fruity dried currant notes in the mix, along with a light tartness that is more lacto derived than the typical Destihl vinegar bomb. Brisk carbonation, medium bodied and easily savored, though I didn't feel like another $3 glass let alone a $4o growler. Lol.

Served in a snifter at Beer Market - Schaumburg.

Finishing the night off with a semi-obscure German style. It pours a clear midnight topaz topped by a half-finger of glowing off-white foam. The nose comprises dark fruits, light wood, dates, walnuts, and a hint of plum. The taste holds notes of dried maple syrup, tart blue raspberry, mild red wine vinegar, dry wood, rich caramel, and a smidgen of dark greens. The combination is somewhat odd, the sweeter elements giving way to the sour ones. Imagine a poorly drawn yin-yang symbol: there's cooperation, but harmony seems a touch lacking. Interesting, if nothing else. The body is a stolid medium, with a rather light moderate carbonation and a slightly slick feel. Overall, a deeply intriguing beer, one I ended up enjoying more than I expected to on my first sip.

Served on tap at barvarian lodge. Pours a deep dark brownish purple with velvety head. Nose feature earthy pithy fruit wih notes of raisin, carob, and molasses. Very interesting layers on the nose. The taste is mildly tart with strong syrupy dark fruit flavors and decent malt profile. Reminds me a bit of a sour porter with tartness and chocolate intertwining. Mouthfeel is heavyish with mild carbonation. Overall, super unique and pretty tasty.
