8 ounces served on draft in a Jester King wine glass.

Appearance: Looks quite a bit like a porter, honestly. Dark brown with a blonde-coffee colored head. Has the head formation of a sour farmhouse ale, uneven and spotty lacing, with loose bubbles. Hints of purple/maroon around the edges where the light comes through the not-quite-opaque body of the beer.

Smell: Wow, for a beer that doesn't have any coffee in it, there's a great deal of "coffee" in the nose. The roasted dark malts at time say more "burnt toast" than "coffee," but there's definitely coffee there. Don't drink this cold though, everything special about this is muted when you do. Lactic tartness coupled with a vague fruitiness typical of blueberry sours.

Taste: Not much to say here that hasn't been said in the nose, as they line up very closely. The balancing act of coffee roast or burnt toast leans more heavily toward burnt toast in the taste, but the coffee is definitely still a player. The lactic character adds a bit of a yogurt note to the beer. The blueberry is subtle, as blueberry has a habit of being. I'm also getting a bit of a raspberry flavor on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Very dry, with a linger so short it may as well not be there at all, an exceptionally clean finish. The carbonation is quite fuzzy, but don't confuse that for "heavily carbonated." It's a perfect level of carbonation for drinking large quantities of, honestly.

Overall: Another exceptional and unique beer from Jester King. Flavor-wise I would place it somewhere between De Garde Loak and Wicked Weed Dark Arts. Dark sours can so easily get acetic (especially when adding a fruit like blueberries) but Jester King avoided that masterfully. Really enjoyed this one.

really cool one of a kind beer right here. no coffee, as the label proudly claims, but man they really pull a lot of coffee flavor out of the malts in this. the nose is super weird, like burnt popcorn or the crumbs and seeds from a bagel burning as the toaster warms up, its that raw, almost harsh, but the blueberry is there to sweeten it up just enough, and there is a real tangy funk to this as well in the nose, wild ale style. the flavor is better than the smell, as the burning grain sort of morphs into something else, espresso and coffee, where the blueberry is subtle, serving as an accent flavor to all the dark, with again just a hint of sugar. the yeast is really weird with the burnt malt, zesty and bring in such a dark beer. acidity is high, jester king classic funk is all over it, and the mouthfeel is sort og chalky and light for what it is, never seems as dark as it looks. the berries really come out in the end too, like those chocolate covered dried berries you get at high end stores. unlike any beer i can remember, mostly because of the fruit and the dark, and because of the ashy burnt malt in this. extremely clever and well built, and you would swear there is coffee in it, but there isnt, crazy.

Great looking beer. Nice dark color and creamy head. Mouthfeel follows with good creaminess but still maintaining the JK dryness. It's a fun contrast. Taste is predominately oak and sour to me, though I get the simulated coffee flavors on the tail end. It's an interesting beer, to be sure, but I'm not as enamored with it as many of the other reviews seem to be. I prefer some of JK's other offerings far more.
