4.26/5  rDev +34.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

bottle picked up at the brewery. enjoyed from my TB batch 002 oversized 22oz snifter (markintihar baby!)

a - pried the wax from the bottle and popped the cap and filled my glass. the brew poured a deep black with maroon highlights suggested when held to the light. i poured slowly so as to fill all 22oz in my glass, but there was still a thin bubbly dark tan head that bubbled away quick. lacing was slick and didn't really cling to the glass nary a few streaks here and there.

s - out of the gate the nose has a sharp sour tingle over a nice roasted impy stout. the chocolate roast of dirty deeds is glazed over with a lacto pinch yielding an appetizing burgandy sour.

t/m - taste is really nice and the carbonation sits just right on this one. vinous cherry burgandy sour flavors dance on top of a faded roasty stout. tickles the tip of my tongue with a pucker of a sour and finishes smooth and not overly dry. has some really nice red wine qualities. drinkability is extremely high. seems to get better and better as it warms.

o - overall, much like the black ipa, the dark sour is a newer animal to me and one that challenges the taste buds. they are all very hit or miss for me with few towing the middle line. devil's deed falls on the good side of the spectrum for what i look for in a dark sour. a burgandy sour without too much pucker and no eggy sourness...but most important it isn't overly dry. i dig it and am psyched to see such promising stuff coming from Long Island.

look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Served on tap at the brewery into a plastic cup.

A: Standard black pour that yielded no head.

S: Acetone, sauerkraut and roasted malts

T: Words cannot describe this taste. Abrasive notes of nail polish and acetone, which dominate the palate.

M: slick mouthfeel with medium carb.

O: Without a doubt, the worst beer I have had to date. A very poor example of an American Wild Ale. Virtually unpalatable.

Serving type: on-tap
