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.

A collaboration beer brewed at Perennial with Half Acre and bottled "1/2012". Landed this one as part of a recent trade with my buddy Andrew out in St Louis. Thanks.

Into a Victory tulip glass.. Pours a darkish brown with a thick tan head. Smell dosent pack a punch but what I can gather is some Belgian yeast, and Candied brown sugar. The taste is very unique, It didn't exactly blow me away but it wasn't like anything I'd tasted before. The currants come through well, Some coffee, nuts, brown sugar and light grain. Not picking up on anything "sour" despite the sour mash, Nice carbonation and Glad to try any thing Half Acre is involved in. I've become a big fan of Perennial thanks to my friends in the mid west.
