Bottle dated 1/2012.
A: Pours a dark brown with crimson highlights under a quarter inch thick fine tan head which slowly fades leaving spotty lace.
N: Yikes! Earthy mushrooms, dark fruit, bready yeast. Somewhat unpleasant.
T: Whew, dark currants, yeast, slight chocolate and coffee, some nutty notes and a slight metallic quality.
M: Moderate body and carbonation. Slightly sweet and yeasty finish.
O: Well, gave this a second try and still not thrilled.

A: This poured a nearly opaque dark mahogany with a little light tan head.
S: It smelled like earthy roasted barley and copper, with a little currants and grassy yeast.
T: It tasted like fresh currants and roasted earthy barley, with bitter copper and sour grassy yeast. It had a dirty earthy aftertaste.
M: It was thick with subtle carbonation. Nice big body.
D: This wasn't a very compelling brew. The scent and taste were less than enjoyable. The body was very nice and the alcohol was well hidden, so it was easy to drink. Just not worth it at all.

From 10/09/13 notes. Had an 8 oz. pour of this on tap at Pony Bar HK in NYC.
a - Pours a murky, reddish brown color with one inch of off white head and low carbonation evident.
s - Smells of sour dark fruits, roasted malts, some chocolate, toasted malts, currants, and sour red wine. Interesting mix of stout and sour dark fruits.
t - Taste follows the nose pretty closely, with maybe a little bit more stout quality to it. Tastes of roasted malts, sour dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, toasted malts, and burnt malts.
m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink, a slightly sour twinge to it.
o - Overall an interesting sour-stout type of beer, though not my favorite. Not a ton going on other than roasted notes and sour dark fruits. Decent, but wouldn't seek it out again...would probably just go for Bruery ToD.
