1.75/5  rDev -56.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

750 ml bottle split and poured into a Duvel tulip. 9% ABV, Dec. 28, 2009, 56/175.

Thanks to Beerwolf for sharing this infected mess?

A - HEY! Our first brew of the night with head! Too bad it's all from the infection. Light retention with patchy lace left on the glass, this brown is...brown and moderately clear.

S - Sour tartness with woody, nutty malts and roasted chocolate mocha. There is a little bit of barrel-aged aroma in there too, but it's overshadowed by the sour infected aroma.

T - Tart, sour infection taste with dusty cocoa and a wet cardboard finish. A little bit of nuttiness pulls through, but this one is far beyond good tasting.

M - Sharp carbonation with a tart finish and mild warm alcohol feel. The excessive carbonation and tartness is another nail in the coffin.

D - All of us ended up drain-pouring the infected mess that was pretty awful but had the potential for greatness had it not been jacked-up.
