Brown and ruddy in appearance, super thin 1/7" tan head. Great aroma, dark fruit, charred malt, coffee from the malt and toffee notes. Complex.

Taste, a good amount of acetic acid, vinegar like aspect pairing with darker malt. Full on carbonation, alcohol noticeable, dark cherry and dark fruit bitterness as well as tartness.

An interesting and unique enough beer. Closes up drying. Would bang again at the right price. Wouldn't chase.

22oz. bomber into Torst stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a .5 finger frothy cream colored head with poor retention. Beer is a dark, almost opaque brown-mahogany. Lacing is spotty, stringy and sparse with minimal stick. Pretty average overall.

Nose is tart plum, prunes and ascetic acid. A slight oakiness in the background with a sprinkle of burnt malt. Rather clean with great aromaticity. I like it.

Opens sweet and tart plum and prunes. Good acidity in the middle with more dark fruit, oak, leather, some farmhouse funk, and a mild sweetness. End is some burnt malt and tartness. Aftertaste of dark fruit and ascetic acid. Pretty simple but very good.

Light bodied with high carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down aggressive, carbonated, and messy. Finishes pretty mellow with a light, lingering, dry aftertaste. Really enhances the flavor.

A very solid but simple beer overall. Light, aggressive mouthfeel accentuates the tart, acidic fruit flavor. Definitely worth a try. One of the better dark sours I've had.
