Bottled 11/25/13. Batch 206/208.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is sour with malt, cocoa, spice, cherry, funk, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, cherry, vinegar, funk, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a high level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with cocoa and spice qualities in the aroma, but the taste is mainly sour fruit and funk.

Serving type: bottle.

This beer is really sour. Beer pours a rich amber with white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent and taste were primarily sour dough. The mouthful is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall not for me.
