Poured from a 750ml bottle into a snifter glass. Pours a medium brown, but fills the glass a dark muddy brown...no light passing through, and a small head dissipates quickly leaving pretty clean side walls...no real lacing to speak of.

Aroma is very appealing. Smells like a great sour, but doesn't look like one...so definitely confusing! Small notes of coffee and wood. Tart/funk is pretty strong, but not vinegary like I expect from a flemish.

Flavor is really strange. Not bad at all, infact...it's definitely tasty! With that said, not great either. Theres a solid sour taste, which was expected from the aroma, but the coffee is combatting the flavor adding a strange characteristic. Medium body, medium carbonation...booze isn't really noticed. An interesting and tasty beer...grab a bottle if you see it just to taste it for yourself!
