look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a dark brown with a one finger tan head.

On the nose is sour fruits and some oak. The roast malt character comes in on the end. Definitely smells sour.

Taste is heavy on the oak. Definitely tastes of oak. Some malt comes through and the sourness hits on the front.

Good mouthfeel. Not much to say about this beer really.

This is an okay beer. I wasn't super excited about it but it was easy drinking. Meh.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: dark brown to black with a huge tan head that stays forever on top. Forever. It's still there and doesn't appear to be subsiding.

S: tartness, sweetness, some dark cherry and chocolate

T: at first it's not sour at all, but on the second sip it hit me, especially on the back end. Still, it's malty and roasty first, then sour with some cherry. Not all too sour at all, though.

M: kind of thin with thin, fine carbonation. Feels kind of delicate, which is not how I would like it.

O: the taste and mouthfeel are disappointing. I expected something more like Sour Black, but this just wasn't up to par.

Got this in a recent trade from one of you guys, can't remeber who but I appreciate it for sure. Dark black-brown color. Interesting smell, clearly wild, a bit of brett and a vinous aroma, not bad. taste was also vinous, slight bit of sour. Overall I thought this was pretty solid. Its not going to rival Russian River or Lost Abbey but its a good start.

This bottle was courtesy of hannydog, who gifted it to me. Thanks Gregg!

This beer pours a medium bodied dark, dark brown on the verge of black with plenty of carbonation and a three finger dark khaki head. It actually looks like a really heady stout. The nose features aromas of tart apples, dried red fruits, Brett, slight fingernail polish, and finishes with almost a chocolate malt aspect. It's interesting. The flavors are strange and aggressive. First, the carbonation attacks your palate. After that you get hit with a tart apple sour mixed with roast and bitter chocolate and also a good amount of funk and Brett. There is also some of that finger nail polish lingering around. The dark malt side of this beer is odd. The roast, light coffee, or chocolate are kind of just thrown in there. The most distracting aspect is the carbonation so that brings down my overall score.
