look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Dark brown to black, stout like with a purple tinge, bubbles cling to the side of the glass everywhere like bees to honey comb, good carbonation, half finger of beige head fades fast to a foam.

S: Sour, balsamic vinegar, light fruitiness, very much like a Flanders red or Oude Bruin. Slightly lactic, plain yoghurt quality. Sour fruit like raspberry but more non descript sour.

T: Sour, sour, sour. Lemon juice, balsamic qualities. Reminiscent of Flanders Reds, Oude Bruins. Oak quality very present. Also, a dark toasted stout quality is hinted in the background. Light fruity tart quality like blackberry juice.

M: Thick acidic body, medium high carbonation.

O: Very well crafted beer. The best American sour I’ve had. Creative in making it a dark stout like and sour at the same time. Fine and complex so much so that it’s a classic.

Serving type: bottle
