From a bottle at Dark Lord Day in Munster, ID. Pours light-red with a medium off white head. Light lacing. Nose of raspberry with acidic and oak aroma. Medium plus body. Flavor is a nice tart berry, and the finish is sour. Very good tasting.

Another funky idea that actually tastes pretty good. Good medium sourness, brown sugar notes.

Botled shared at Mattís pad. Clear brown pour with an off white head. Sour stone fruit aromas. Sour stone fruits, caramel malt, and oak notes. The bourbon notes have really mellowed. Good body and mouthfeel. A solid sour ale from Block 15.

Buddy brought this one from Portland to Atlanta for sisterís wedding. Poured a murky brown with a minor amount of offwhite head. Nose. was sweet vanilla, bourbon, tannic acid, dark fruits, all over the place in a good way. Taste was much the same. So much going on it was hard to get a good read on whether this was a great beer or just a muddled mixture. Suppose it landed more towards the former, but not a complete homerun. Taste was initially sweet bourbon followed by the sour oud bruin barrel punch, vinous, dark fruits, vanilla, bourbon, oak, cherry. Finishes tart for sure. Enjoyed this one.

750 mL thanks to GT2! Rich dark mahogany pour with a small bubbly head. Classic dark sour with fig, plum, vinous tartness, sour unripe peach. Touches of acetic/balsamic, but not overdone. Good stuff.

750ml bottle, thanks GT2. Poured a brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is boozy malts and some light funk notes. Flavor is some roasted malt notes, some dried fruits, some tartness in here most certainly.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Very dark brown color, beige head. Aroma of sour prunes in coffee. Taste is very sour dark fruit, citrus. A bit too sour for me, and I like sours.

750mL thanks to a generous BA. Pours a clear, deep maroon. Yellowish foam dissipates relatively quickly. Nose is spot on oud bruin, similar to De Dolle Oerbier Reserva, heavy red wine barrel, seedy raspberry jam, steak fat. Taste is pretty spot on: minerally, red wine, spicy acetic (mild), lime juice (very big), raspberry jam. Palate is lactic, clean, refreshing. Really impressive for style. Iím a fan :)
