750ml bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip.
2013 vintage

A: Pours a thin looking black with thin, fast dissipating head. (2)

S: Tart plum, cherry, vanilla, and oak. (4)

T: Quite sour up front. Plum and cherry pits over light chocolate, vanilla, and oak. (4)

M: Medium body. Slick, effervescent, and acidic. (3.5)

O: I enjoyed the extreme sour. Too acidic though.. All in all a tasty brew, but probably not worth the high price tag . (3.75)

1.45/5  rDev -65.6%

Pour is purplish black with a soapy ring. Nose is heavy sweetness, disoriented malt sugars and berry sweetness with a light leathery brett presence. Taste is awful, strong acetic acid and extreme residual sugar with tons of malt sweetness. Virtually no stout flavors other than too sweet, finish is bretty and bitter with high acid levels and a slick oily feel. Rough drain pour.
