12 ounce bottle from a brewery holiday 8 pack sampler, November 2008 for $12.99 at La Bodega in Riverside, CA.
Pours a nice deep rich brown-plack, slightly on the thick side, an initial moderate carbonation from a hard pour makes for a small-moderate tan-brown head, which quickly fades to nothing. Very flat looking thereafter.
Aroma of burnt cocoa beans, slightly coffeeish. A hint of toffee sweetness.
Flavor is much harsher and astingent than the aroma. The first sip is overpoweringly acidic and almost lambic-like in its sourness (OK, that's an over-statement, but you get the idea). My best descriptions is lemonjuice straight out of the bottle. A couple of sips in, the mouth settles into the flavor, but wow, what is this? The notes in the aroma are completely hidden. Honestly, I'm not liking this- very different from the style.
I let it warm quite a bit, thining maybe the cold was causing this. There was some improvement, but not even closing to making this a tasty beer. This one became a drain pour after about 4 ounces.
