On tap at Monk's Cafe Mad Monday

A- Pours black with some ruby hues creeping through, small white foamy head that reduces completely.

S- Smells of dark currant, blackberry, wild grapes, sharp oak and vanilla, the dark fruit definitely overwhelms the aroma.

T- strong, puckering flavor of wild dark grape up front with notes of sweet currant and concord grape kicking in mid-palate. Sweet berries and slightly acidic vinegar on a dry and puckering finish, with more grape on the linger

M- Medium body with low carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a dry, puckering finish

O- this was one of the highlights of the Mad Monday event for me. Our table went through three glasses of it and I actually preferred the taste over Consecration. Very well done.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pour is black with a light brown head. Fruity cherry, lots of the Flemish sour come through in the nose. Smells a bit acetic with some unique dark malt. Taste is fairly acetic, lots of sour cherry and traditional Flemish sour flavor with an interesting chocolaty, dark malt note. Light body. Really strong carb, a hint slick.

on-tap x2, @ Burgundian

I had no idea this beer even existed so it was a pretty nice score given the crazy barreling involved. Dark garnet in body - biting carbonation, red wine, leather, black cherry, wood, heavy tartness. Great stuff - not sure if this will surface again, but we can hope
