Bottle poured into a snifter. The brew appears black in color with a mocha colored head. Decent retaining powers and patchy lace sticks to the glass.

The aroma is lactic with a tany fruit note. Some minerals creep in giving this a bit of a carbonic feel at times across the nose.

The taste is equally mineral-filled with lactic notes, earth, funk and mildly stinky cheese. A faint amount of toast plays into the carbonic nature of this.

This is medium to light bodied with light chessy funky and earthen appeal. The body, effervescent carbonation and mineral character keep it back from being good. Its not bad really but it just isnt that good either.
