Cloudy dark copper pour with a frothy two-finger slightly off-white head. Slightly sour and spicy aroma. Flavor is somewhat sweet upfront with a slightly sour edge. Can taste flavors of mildly sour fruit, yeast, caramel malt, light clove and earth. Highly carbonated with light to medium body. Finishes with a light sour taste.

The beer pours a dark brown body with a thick white head. This smells like a dark brown sour ale. The flavor has a nice nuttiness, with a tiny bit of tartness and oak. There is a strong tingle on the tongue as it goes down.

12 oz. pour into a tumbler. Prohibition Taproom, Philly.

A- Chestnut in color. Great off white head, with great lacing. Retains low.

S- Sour, with caramel. Some cherry.

T- Sweet. Bready malt character. Cherry.

M- Smooth. Carbonation is very light. Tart, but with a wet and clean finish.

O- Solid drink. Very interesting blend of brown ale sweetness, and sour notes. Not like a flanders, though.
