A bit of a gusher, but after settling the beer pours a jet black, non-oily, with a thin whispy light tan head that provides minimal lacing. The nose is more coffee and roasted malt forward, hint of vinegar, booze, and smokiness, but very little bitterness or yeast. The taste is more sour than malty, with muted notes of roasted malt and ripe stone fruits. The beer is medium bodied, vinous, dry, slightly roasty and has a touch smoky. Delicious beer, lot of good flavors, but all melded well together.

Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to Rocket80 for sharing this one.

Pours a murky dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with dark roasted malt, cocoa, and funk aromas. Taste is much the same with sour cocoa and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness and acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is a solid example of a sour porter.
