12 oz bottle, which is indeed indigo.

Pours a very dark brown, hardly any head. Smell is medicinal, with hints of dark cherries and licorice. Taste is ultra-sour at first, bitter beer-face all over it. But after a sip or two, I got used to it and started getting very vivid bleu cheese/gorgonzola flavors. Very odd, but a fun and unique experience. Even though my score won't show it, I'd drink this one again. I imagine this would pair great with a steak or something.

Thanks to hopdog for this...
Appears a dark brown nearing black with dark mahogany edges.
Smell is of vanilla, cocoa, roast grain, espresso, sour cherries, and grapes.
Taste is of the aromas with a tart apple flavor pulling through with the soured coffee hanging out.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, tart, and semi-dry in the finish.
