Simply the best beer I tasted at the Extreme Beer Fest in Boston.
Came across like a stout that had been given over to wild yeast. Dark red brown with a sour funky nose and a cherry-chocolate-citrus flavor profile. I'd buy it in an instant if I could find it again.

Dark brown color. Funky aroma. Slightly tart but the right amount for me. Complex funk, accentuating a chocolate malt backbone. Very interesting. Like you mixed a saison, some funky Belgian the Thirst Monk’s basement bar would serve, and a chocolate stout. This beer alone made me glad I went up to the Extreme Beer Fest in Boston.
