3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ CB at the ATG tap takeover. Hazy brown with a light tan head. Aroma of tart pie cherries, chocolate, dough and light apple cider vinegar. Flavor is not as sour or tart as the aroma would suggest, chocolate and dark fruit mostly with a light sour/tart edge. Medium body with a long, dry finish. Interesting beer, but the flavors don’t really come together.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from the tap at FOBAB 2012. Pours a musty deep amber with a light brown heasd that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has some sweet chocolate and sourness with a bit of dark grains. Flavor has more roasted malts with sour cherries and a hint of chocolate. Didn’t come together for me.
