Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to Chris F. for sharing this one.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart with roasted malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour and tart roasted malt and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but the sour aspect comes across slightly better in the aroma.

Batch 2

I wish folks would stop trying to make dark saisons. Ugh. Barely drinkable.

Well, Monday just wan't my day for tasting beer.

Attempted Redrum was a bad bottle, and now my Guillemot Nebula is likely infected.

Taste is okay, some roast, no bourbon, and a big weird cherry finish on the flavor. The two other BA's tasting this and I were all unanimous inc alling out infection. Still drinkable, but clearly not what this was intended to taste like.
