Thanks to koufax21 for bringing this to March Madness 2013!

Pours out a thinner black, brown and ruby red color, not dissimilar to Tart of Darkness, but dare I say even more impressive looking than one of my favorite beers (I should warn you, there will probably be at least one more ToD reference in this review)?

Good lactic sourness it seemed in the aroma. Like, all sour.

Taste, pungent sourness, gritty malt sticks to the teeth with the brett possibly that is part of this, I would think so. Goes with the dark fruit vibe, but instead of tiresome things like figs, prunes, raisins etc. . . you get black cherry, blackberry, sweet plum. grape. After all of that, you can discern some roasted malt aspect, but its in the background, as it should be a little bit with this mash up.

Mouthfeel remains sour throughout, you can start to think they flash burned the barrel, the smallest smoke contingent gets in there. If I had a bunch of these, this would be a good sour to take camping I'm thinking.
