adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2014
On tap @ the release party @ Crooked Stave’s Source location. Somewhat hazy reddish brown appearance with a thin, disappearing tan head. Aroma has a bunch of plum / dark berry / dark grape fruits. Some tannic notes also present and actually a fair amount of roast / toffee / caramel / burnt malt. The flavor is moderately tart. Black cherry / dark grape notes are pretty apparent. Some woody / leathery notes. Light acetic acid. Finishes pretty smooth. Pretty fun brew and definitely easy to drink.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle thanks to BenH. It pours deep brown with small white head. The nose is red fruits, tang, caramel, tangy, vinous, red wine, plum skin and mild acidity. The taste is tangy, red wine, wood, mild acidity, plum skin, redcurrant, Granny Smith apple, raspberry and oak with a lingering wood-acidity on the finish. Fruity, tangy and rather scoopable.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Sample at Crooked Stave. The beer pours a clear ruby-brown color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of oak, tart fruit and caramel. Medium-bodied with flavors of vinous oak, caramel malt and funky yeast. The finish is brett yeast and tart vine fruits. Pretty good all around.

Sammy (9981) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Very good sour beer. Initially, at a colder temperature, the sourness is mild. It builds as it rises to room temperature. Not too palate erasing.

>> Clear deep amber pour, tan spotty lace. Nose is tropical fruit, hot red peppers, passionfruit, cranberry, salty acetic. Really odd but nice. Taste is acetic, salty, cranberry. Mouthwatering pickle and salt. Not bad, strange dark sour. Tannic, salty, mild pickle. Quite the bizarre experience.
