A-Pours a dark brown. Nearly no head. What are you?

S-I get some mild tartness mixed with some relative sweetness. As the previous reviewer stated, I also am reminded of cola.

T-I'd enjoy a bit more sour/tart here. Its a lingering nuance. It has some Porter and Belgian dark qualities. Also there is some dark fruits.

M-Now seeing how high the ABV is, I am surprised by its rather modest body.

O/D-Interesting but it could use a bit more 'funkification'. Definitely an interesting cup of hooch.

Poured from 375 ml bottle that I picked up during Trillium's anniversary week.

A: Pours a very dark purple with a 2 finger off white head that settled fairly quickly to a small ring around the edge. Little if no lacing to be found.

S: Aroma is dominated by tart fruit mixed with yeast esters. Plum, currants, dates.

T: Follows the nose fairly close, but I also pick up a bit on the oak notes. I feel like there should be some sweetness coming from the roasted malts, but they are overpowered by the tartness. The black currants are shining through.

M: Medium body with an almost prickly carbonation.

O: Interesting brew. As a wild ale or sour, I think it is hugely successful. As a Belgian dark strong ale, it misses the mark somewhat. I badly wanted some sweetness to offset some of the tart fruits...

On tap at Lord Hobo "sour tap takeover".

Brownish amber with minimal head. Roast, chocolate, and dark fruit in the nose. Oily and a bit chewy. Roast, raisins, and some tart fruit on the palate.

Not all that complex and the heavy roast and chocolate are not really my thing. Probably a good candidate for cellaring.
