A: Black motor oil appearance with a khaki head & decent lace. Good head retention.
S: Dark roasted malt, tart sour cherries on the nose.
T: Malt bomb of flavor and booziness but very tart notes follow consistent with infection.
M: Smooth thick chewy body. Decently carbonated.
O: It is a shame this was infected. Will have to taste this on the premises to get the best experience.

Poured from a small growler..or is it technically a bottle?

Pours black as night, with a very minimal dark brown head. Dissipates to a murky blackness. Aroma is definitely tart cherry, though its not huge. There's some oak, bourbon, chocolate and coffee...but that mineral, acidic aroma really disrupts things, despite being mild. The taste again has some cherry notes, and a milder, faint acid, along with the mild bourbon, roast and chocolate. Disrupts, but its not awful. Still feels nice and full bodied, creamy.

Well, as it sits, its just an okay BA stout with the mild touches of infection. I can tell its awesome when not infected. How unfortunate!

32oz growler, sampled at the Ebenezer's Night of the Great Thirst campfire last summer; just now getting around to uploading my notes. Thanks to whoever shared this!

A: Black body, brown head, spotty tan lace. Ok.

S: Bourbon, vanilla, coconut, smoke, dark chocolate. Really good, but a little muted.

T: Sweet and sour, with Bourbon, lactic tartness, and oak. Metallic finish. Disappointing, but drinkable.

M: Medium-to-thick body with creamy carbonation. Good.

O: Infected, but lightly enough to be drinkable, and the nose was still excellent. Really glad I got to try this, but bummed it was an off batch. Will revisit if I get the chance.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an almost opaque super dark crimson-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, char, and bourbon aromas. Taste is much the same with sour cocoa and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is obviously infected but still is fairly drinkable in this state.
