22oz bottle I aged for 1.5 years. It has a black color body wirh a lot of fizz. The aroma is of tart berries. The taste is tart of berries and has a sour finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and is very carbonated. Overall it is a good beer and im glad I bought 2 of them.

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

Thanks to queens1130 for sharing this one.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with dark roasted malt and cocoa 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 sourness in the flavor is more subtle than the aroma.
