Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer is black or near to it with a small khaki head. the aroma offers tart cherries, brown sugar, chocolate, yeast, funk. Earthy with cherries dipped in chocolate. Medium bodied and a bit heavy on the palate. Rich and flavorful. A solid dark saison.

The beer comes in a dark brown.

The aroma is intriguing of vinegar, tartness, roasted malt and dark fruit.

The flavor follows of roasted malt, but then follows of tartness from dark cherries, tartness, vinegar, and then some funk. A bit of oak drying on the end.

A really interesting brew. I was not as impressed by others, but still a really different and interesting brew. A dark, tart, and funky brew.

750ml bottle poured into a Tree House tulip. Bottle was a gusher.

A: Pours deep black with two fingers of off white head. This thing really gushed out of the bottle. Did my best to save it.

S: Acetic. Roasted malt and oak. Malt vinegar notes. Musty.

T: Gentle tartness with a huge tannic, oak punch. Again, acetic and strong vinegar notes. It's really not that sour, but it really puckers the palate. Roasted malt on the back end.

M: Effervescent with a thin body.

O: A little strong on the acetic acid and oak astringency for me. I typically like dark farmhouse ales/dark sour beers, but something here is just a bit too much for me. Not bad, just not great.
