Bottle shared by Deyholla, thanks! Pours near black with foamy cream head. Nose is loads of tart red fruits balanced by strong umami and a hint of metallic acidity. Taste is more umami and metallics. Really unpleasant at first for me but after a bit, I’m starting to appreciate and enjoy it. Torn on this

deyholla (6660) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours near black with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of sour fruit with some backing barnyard and light dark grains. Flavor has notes of dark grains and mushroom throughout with a light tartness and funk.

Dark, plums, tingy fruits, some stouty bite, licorice. Pinot barrels are quite pronounced. Pretty good, not great.

GT2 (8463) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 4, 2013
750mL thanks to brainlair and ryan. Dark porter color, coffee foam. Dwindling quickly. Acid cut. Nose has dark red wine, blackberry, small seasoned tomato from the bourbon, cracked black pepper. Taste is tangy, woody, dusty, light black cherry, excellent lime juice acidity. Clean, nice cocoa addition. Essentially a dark sour. Has some Fantome Noel like mild acidity combined with a bizarre but loveable concoction of flavors. Loving the palate. Acidic, tangy, berry heavy, raspberry chocolate.

hopscotch (9170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle... Hazy nearly-black ale with ruby highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is chocolaty and lightly herbal - sassafras - with a rumor of funk. Full-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor pretty much mirrors the nose – sweet and chocolaty with a suggestion of sassafras and a whisper of acidic funk. Sweet, chocolaty finish. About as interesting as they come. Pulls up just shy of being world class. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

Shared at the local homebrew Christmas party. Hazy brown pour with some bubbles. Aroma is alcohol, cherries, and funk. Taste is puckered super yeast, tart cherries, a little wood, and a big vinous finish.

JPDurden24 (1579) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - DEC 18, 2012
From a shared bottle, pours a dark brown, hazy, aroma of booziness, a little sweetness and some tart cherry. Taste is very similar and it’s damn good.
