750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm (later by Tmoney99). Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin beige film. The aroma has quite a bit of sour lactic qualities interspersed with cocoa, nuts and roast. It is very different than beers like Tart of Darkness, etc. The flavor is much of the same with maybe more tart character. Some vinous notes,Brett and wood. Interesting complex beer. I still don’t like the prices of these.

Bottle. Black pour. Malty aromas. Smoke, red wine, roasted malts and brett notes. Bad mouthfeel. This beer is a mess. Decent body..

Bottle shared at the nyc tasting. Notes of butter acid and funk, bad whiskey and barrel, oaky, ashy and gross. Moldy cheese in the finish. Awful.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bomber. Dark brown pour. Mild sour cherry. Quite flat on the palate. So close but kind of misses the mark.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Black body with a small beige head, no lacing. Nose has some tangy sour notes with a good amount of red wine, faint cocoa, earth and paint. Taste is tart and sweet. Lots of red berry, roasted malt, wood, wine, dark chocolate, a little soy sauce. Body is medium-full and smooth. Finishes mostly dry with a bit of residual bittersweet flavor. The roasty sour combination is one I really enjoy. Excellent.

Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
