Fully reviewed to my phone at time of consumption at Crooked Stave @ The Source, Denver, CO.

A- Tap to snifter pour with a dark mahogany brown body that has plenty of haziness. A foamy tan cap forms to over a finger with good retention falling to a thick puffy cloud and ring. Lacing starts with big sheets and

S- Dark and sour. Raisins, musty wine vinegar, lactic acid, brown sugar, vinius dark grapes, cherries, wet oak and a medium dose of funk.

T- Moderate amount of both lactic and musty wine grape acetic acids making it have just a bit of Flanders and balsamic feel. Notes of spiced raisin, green apple, lemon sours, leather, sweaty barnyard funk, cherry and pits, light toast wet oak and medium candi sugar. The sourness and spiced dark fruits with vinegar being the main theme.

MF- Light end bodied as sours tend to be with some foamy and silky textures. Carbonation moderately high with a medium sourness coating the palate throughout.

Dark sour brown with a hint of Oud Bruin going on for me. The sourness is moderate and doesn't mask the nice flavors that are presented with it, my main gripe with Nightmare on Brett.
