3fourths (8055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2009
dark murky purple colored body, tan speckled head. Pungent nose of tannic, musty grape skins, sweet plum tobacco and resinous dry chocolate, all infused with a bugginess that contains a slight must of brett and a more pronounced prickliness/horseblanket note of pedicoccus. It’s a five-beer blend but we’re not told what exactly the blend is, and it actually takes a little too messy, which makes me think that this was simply a blend for the sake of making a blend, and that there was no real goal in mind... if you’ve ever started blending lambic at the end of the night, maybe with a little Rochefort, that’s what this tastes like. Where it scores points is the red grape character, both with a tart, dry, tannic skin note, and a sort of funky and fruity champagne-like prickliness. Good overall but not very refined.

Crushed with Jakebra off tap at the brewery. Yum. What a nose! Sourness, leather, some good poop. Flavor isn’t as good as the nose, which is a bummer, but still was absolutely badass. Had 5 tasting chips, and I used 3 on this bitch.

Ratman197 (9874) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2009
On tap at Avery Tasting Room poured a hazy dark brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of horseblanket, leather, dark fruit and some vinous notes. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a tart finiish. Flavors of horseblanket, leather, toffee, cherry and light vanilla with a smooth lingering tart funky finish.
