look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pour is dark brown with a lot of fluffy bubbly tan head. Nose is light with a some dark malts up front, roast and hint of chocolate, a fair amount of citrusy hops and light pine come in behind with a faint note leathery brett. Taste is different, malts are up front with a light roast and tobacco, strong leathery Brett with a piney resinous hop and thick syrupy body. Carbonation is a hint low and the finish has some juicy citrus with a slick feel down the throat. More like a black ipa.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 7/12 Bottle #741/1531. Thanks for sharing Matt!

(A)- Pours almost totally black in color, but with some deep burnt sienna brown highlights. Some tan froth with good retention.

(S)- Quite dry overall, but with some lovely funky Brett and piney wood. Some subtle citrus at the end. Bready in a yeast sense.

(T)- Very complex actually. It is just barely soured but with some rustic dry Brett-like funk. You definitely get a very piney-like hop character in this still.

(M)- A good carbonation level to this. It is very complex, but almost too complex to quite know what it is trying to be.

(O)- Definitely something unique and complex with its earthy funk and tart flavors. I have not had this fresh, but definitely an interesting beer at this stage.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a coffee brown color capped by a large ecru head that gets rocky as it slowly fades, leaving plenty of lace on the tulip

Smell: Lemon, Spruce and a hint of barnyard

Taste: Opens with toasted brown bread base that is subsumed by lemony tartness; in the middle, both the Spruce and a touch of barnyard funk arrive; the finish is tart and tangy with just a touch of the malt

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; somewhat puckery

Overall: Not sure what this was like when first released (and I read some mixed reviews) but this has developed into a very nice beer (and I note the last few reviews have rated this much higher)

A - Dark black with a bit of brown and a finger of khaki-chocolate colored head. Fades slowly.

S - Dark caramel and chocolate malts, spruce tips, grapefruit, citrus, and pine hops, funky Brett, some tart green fruits.

T - Dark roasted caramel and chocolate malts, spruce tips, grapefruit, citrus, pine, and grassy hops, some lightly resiny bitterness, funky Brett, and tart green fruits.

M - Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Smooth with a bitter, funky, tart, and lightly roasty finish.

D - Fantastic dark sour. Like the mix of hops and spruce tips.
