A little extra sweetness but awesome beer. On tap at beermongers, no infection noticed so I can't comment on how the bottles taste.

Block 15 snifter. Opened December 2013.

DRAINPOUR!

This one was definitely infected but I knew that going in. Will need to track this down again when no infection is present.

Not sure if Block 15 should have released it, even if it was with the buy at your own risk. I prefer when breweries don't release infected beer or have a if it is infected we will refund your money clause.

A -Pours a dark caramel brown color that is cloudy. Beer foams over and overflows glass, 2 inches of liquid yields 6 inches of foam.

S - A lot of fruit and caramel flavors with tart cherries and a strong sour flavor that overpowers everything.

T - sour cherries, gym socks, spices, apples, dark fruit, subtle brandy.

D - Over carbed to say the least..

O - This was clearly an infected bottle, possibly at the bottling line. I've had this beer several times before and it tasted nothing like this. Disappointing would be an understatement.

Thanks to queens1130 for sharing this one at jmgrub's tasting.

Best by 1/1/14.

Pours a clear reddish-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, dark fruit, spice, and brandy aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour malt, dark fruit, and brandy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody and spice bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is fairly tasty but there seems to be some sort of infection going on with this one.
