Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Light fizzy head, dark head, no light dark pretty much black.

Nose sour bacteria, funk and tart fruit, some brown malt sweetness, candy malts and caramel, sour dark malt like an oud bruin. Mild toasty oak.

Taste is sweet and tart, sour brown malts, oud bruin all over, with some vanilla barrel and toasted oak, creamy like, etc. Bacteria lacto funk with creamy lacto city, sour brown malts, etc. Nothing else really. Finish sticky flemmy, sour brown malts and lacto funk, booze all over the back end.

Mouth is med to heavier bod, decent carb, flemmy.

Shared with JLindros. I think this is batch 2.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a very dark almost black hire with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps and a thin halo.

S - Aromas of vinous wine barrels, funky yeast, lacto maybe, dark malts, light sourness.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Darker malts, loads lacto, light sourness, the malts are strong with loads of rich malts and light funk.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, a bit thin.

O - Overall this beer was an enormous let down, light funk, messy.

Appearance: Pours fudge brown and is capped by an impressive head that leaves a web of lacing behind

Smell: Caramel, sour cherries, lemon and earthy tones

Taste: Sour cherries and lemon, on the front end, with the caramel building in the middle; some chocolate and coffee elements appear, after the swallow, with a vinous aspect in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A wide variety of flavors in this beer with both sweet and tart elements as well as the hints of chocolate and coffee; excellent

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to Chris F. for sharing this one.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart with roasted malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour and tart roasted malt and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of 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 tasty but the sour aspect comes across slightly better in the aroma.
