Beer pours a hazy brown with an off white head. The smell is predominantly coffee with some strange fruit smell. The flavor is slightly tart but not horrible. My first experience with a beer with this small of alcohol content I can see the benefits but prefer the highpoint beers. Was basically wanting to try something from Jester King Brewery and this is what I found. Overall wouldn't buy again.

This one pours a muddled brown and fills to a very dark, reddish-brown, but in the sunlight it’s a shimmering, clear dark garnet. The head is a fuzzy khaki finger that dies to a creamy tan collar that has a soft cling.

Smell is funkier, nuttier, woodier, and cheesier than the beer turns out to be on the tongue, with notes of pie crust, candied nuts and brie.

Taste is lightly tart and very faintly smoked with toasty malt. It's almost like a wild Oktoberfest paired with some light, nutty oak and a tart lemon-cherry finish.

A medium to light crisp body finishes semi-wet, and the tartness seems like it increases with time, but subtly, helping it to become more complex.

Poured into tulip from bottle minimal head no lacing. Medium brown in the glass. Chestnut, lactic on the nose. Mild tartness and bitterness, like a mild sour brown. Great beer to slow down the night with. Split 2 of these with my daughter.
