Thanks to jmpizzo for sending me this one!
Pours an almost (like 99% here) opaque super dark brown with a 1 inch foamy tan head that settles to a thin film. Random blotches of lace stick to the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, toasted oats, sour dark fruits, and an alcohol scent. Taste is of dark fruits up front with some malt/oat flavors on the finish. There is also a sour flavor that is coming through on this one that I am pretty sure is not intended. Perhaps an infection? This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. Overall, I am disappointed in this beer. I think there is an infection or age issue going on with this one. The sour smell and flavors are pretty off putting in my opinion.
