Poured into snifter. cola brown-black, light quickly fizzed out head.

Smells of dark fruit, roast, something in the nose.

Taste is sour, not unlike flanders red ale. Dark grapes, nuts, dried tobacco, faint caramel. The sourness hides a dark heaviness.

Mouth is puckered.

The prominence of its tartness is a little distracting, but it if a lighter wee heavy and a red ale bred, they would produce this entertaining offspring. Fans of sour should try.

Ruddy red and brown appearance, not quite still life pour, but it really wasn't the prettiest beer. 1/7" head is shy and quickly disappears. You get those wood and mild sour notes in the aroma, didn't pick up anything acetic here.

Taste was seemingly a bigger blend of fresh beer instead of tart/sour blended with it. Very mild. Woody, hops aged, some acetic acid, highly carbonated, thin brown malts.

Its a neat little foray into the past, but ultimately I'd rather have something like New Glarus's old world porter or whatnot if I want to see how beer was blended fresh with the infected stuff from yesteryear.
