A huge thank you to cocoapuph for sending this, my first selection from a box full of awesomeness that came last week. Cheers man!! 2013 bottle.

Pours dark brown, close to black in the glass and topped with 3 fingers of frothy, khaki head. Trat raspberry, dark chocolate and some lactic sour on the nose with a touch of whiskey barrel and coconut.

Quite sour with tart raspberry, cocoa, ...there's a bit of whiskey barrel too if I really look. Not a ton going on, but what's there is very nice.

Medium body, medium-strong carbonation.

Very nice stuff. Without looking at ratings, the nicest CS beer I've tried so far. Thanks again, cocoapuph.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Thanks to rudzud,
Big fluffy fizzy head fades semi slowly tons of lacing, dark mahogany almost black like color.

Nose brings tons of raspberry, raspberry syrup and mild cocoa, powdered dark choc, nice tart sour rasp, hint of lactic acid but not really funk, little tannic seed.

Taste starts very sour, super sour, decent raspberry, more syrup, with tart funk and sour raspberry. Then mild cocoa dark choc, little flemmy sour, tangy, nice acidic bite. Finish is flemmy tangy sour, light raspberry syrup and syrupy sour masts.

Mouth is med to heavier bod, syrupy and very sour tangy acidic, decent carb, booze hidden well.

Overall pretty nice, super sour, nice rasp esp on the nose, tangy, nice little cocoa, a bit syrupy and flemmy.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at his tasting.

2013 vintage. Bottled 9/2013.

Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Small chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is sour with malt, raspberry, acidic, wood, and slight whiskey aromas. Taste is much the same with sour raspberry, acidic, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a tasty mix of raspberry and whiskey barrel aged aspects all around.

Serving type: bottle.
