750ml bottle poured into a Noda snifter

A~ dark hazy brown with a head that keeps on giving all the way down.

S~ as soon as i opened the bottle i got a strong peppery, sour aroma. tart, pepper, citrus, and lots of oak. almost like really good smoked bbq.

T~ oh it just keeps getting better! lots of tartness up front followed by smokey roasted malts and tart citrus and pepper on the finish. theres a Twilight of the Idols thing going on as well. soooo damn tasty!

M~ nicely carbonated and oh so smooth.

O~ i really didn't know what to expect from this one, having never had any CD before. this is just fantastic. the perfect amount of tartness balanced out by roasted malts, how could you go wrong!? i've always been in love with darker sours. i'm so happy i have half a bottle left! =]
