2.45/5  rDev -19.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A- Dark garnet color, 1 finger tan head, lacing is ok. color is what really stands out for this one.

S- The date on the bottle shows best by Sept of 2011. upon first whiff of this one i have to say it smells pretty "skunky". Some malty flavors with a bit of roasted yeast.

T- Earthy hops and caramel. Has a bitterness to it, almost sour. A touch of maltiness on the back end and a quite sour finish.

M- Medium body thickness with a foam sensation to it.

O- Regardless of the Best by date, I think I may have gotten a bad beer here. Didn't finish this one. Will post an update in the future.

3.23/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a dark ruby brown. A cream colored head recedes to a film leaving very light lacing.

The aroma is of toasty grains with faint chocolate.

The beer tastes like the aroma but with a little sour tang in the finish.

Mouthfeel is really carbonated.

Overall, this beer suffers from green bottle syndrome, but is otherwise sessionable when in the mood for the style.
