Poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice.

Plan B pours out a very deep brown with a small head. The aroma is interesting, it's yeasty, chocolatey, tart, and sour. The taste is tart and fruity at first, with more sour aspects coming through on the finish. Some of the chocolate comes through too, along with some roasted malts. Unique and tasty. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and medium-bodied, with a dry finish. The drinkability is pretty good. Overall, this is an enjoyable sour Belgian strong ale with a strong fruit component. Recommended.

Dark brown with a reddish hue around the edges. Minimal rusty brown colored head.

The currants really pop in the scent along with blackberry. There's a touch of chocolate and the aroma reminds me of a port.

There's a nice tartness to the flavor along with some bready malts and dark fruit. Unfortunately, there's a musty cardboard aftertaste that's off-putting.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with some prickly carbonation.

This was a decent beer, but the musty aftertaste was a major drawback for me.
