2011 bottle.

L - Pitch black pour with a reddish tan colored thick layer of foam.

S - Funk, dark roast chocolate, very light cherry, tartness, and very dry on the nose.

T - Tart cherry, chocolate malt, acidic tang, lots of funk and tang.

M - Full medium body with a velvet feel and low carbonation. sticky on the lips, very wet finish.

O - This was "good" when I first bought it in 2011 and now, four years later, it's matured into a very good beer!

22oz bottle I aged for 1.5 years. It has a black color body wirh a lot of fizz. The aroma is of tart berries. The taste is tart of berries and has a sour finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and is very carbonated. Overall it is a good beer and im glad I bought 2 of them.
