3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep deep ruby black color with a no head... very still no visible carbonation. On the nose its vinous, deep dark ripe fruit plum, chocolate, and a touch of balsamic acidity. On the palate it is much of the same with a smooth slightly creamy mouthfeel that gets cut with some great acidity and deep dark notes of tobacco, chocolate, tar... all lightened by some bright cherry plum sneaking through in spots. A lot more drinkable than I thought it would be at 13%

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at the Santa Cruz tasting in March 2013. A very strange beer, notes of sweet grapes and prunes, lots of tannic wood, high alcohol and bitterness, solid acidity. Not all that enjoyable actually.

Draft. Dark ruby with little head. Vinous with touches of cherry, yogurt, oak and vinegar. Medium sticky mouthfeel and quite boozy. Very unique.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flip top, No head at all. Puckery smokey taste, slick mouth feel. Very odd stuff. Not so much to my taste.Label should do more to indicate that this is a sour ale. Serving: Bottle

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at beers of the world party. Aroma is sweet with dark fruits, plums and a very tart nail polish funk. Pours dark brown, thick and syrup-like with absolutely no carbonation whatsoever. Taste is very tart with a cloying nail polish taste. Some dark fruit and brown sugar notes are there but overall distractingly funky. Unless this was intentional, I’m fairly certain this beer is infected.
