Pour is black with a small bubbly tan head. Nose is bile acid and cherry cola with hints of dry leathery brett. Flavor is a little better, not much, butyric acid, notes of dark malt, cherry cola, quite sour, moderate acidity in finish, body is fairly heavy, super high carb, oily finish.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Dark brown body. Medium off-white head.

Smell - Very weird. A dark malt funk. Not sure how else to describe. Nutty, maybe?

Taste - This is weird, too. Kinda nutty. Maybe some chocolate. Gets sour and a little vinegary. Woody, too.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy body. Well carbonated.

Overall - What a weird flavor. Not sure I dig it.
