Pours out a thin head yielding brown, red and light black. Nothing but sourness in the aroma.

Taste, comes off nice and dry, oak tannins, gritty at times. The darker fruits are the brighter dark fruits. Lots of black cherry, blackberry. Malt, chocolate comes through a little in the mouthfeel. This one leans powerfully sour.

Would love to do this one and a tart of darkness back to back. The best in that sour vein.

Its like all dark brown and black with a thin head, almost ruby colors to it. Looks sexy enough.

Its all lactic sourness in the aroma, no off scents, pleasurable.

Pungent sour taste, gritty malt sticks to the teeth as if there is some brett. You don't get the tired dark fruit descriptors, you get bright fruity ones like sweet grape and plum. There is very little roast in the mouthfeel, but if you look for it you can prolly find it.

I'm a big fan of this beer. Had it a few times now, first when my bro brought it out way back in the day.

Pour pitch black with a dark chocolate head. Smells of roasted malts. Lots of dark chocolate covered fruits. Finishes tannic.

In a tulip at the brewery from a cask. Mocha head and tons of lace. Pitch-black body. 5

Tart dark choc nose and creamy funk. 4.25

Love the flavor. Tart cherry from somewhere, then dark chocolate, roastiness and a stone fruit finish. 4

Tart, funky, a tad yeasty, and finishes bitter. Intriguing. Chewy too. 4



Delicious.
