3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at The Bruery - thanks to Andrew! Pours clear brown with a creamy, tan head. Lots of raisins here, cake, lightly oxidised character, dark bread, some wood. Medium to full in body with fine average carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with ripe and dark berries, toffee, some tangy fruits. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12/2013 3R6P gathering +++ Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was bourbon, coconut and vanilla. The flavor was tart, sour and lactic with notes of dark fruits, red wine, coconut, chocolate and vanilla. Long tar t and sour finish with lingering red wine and coconut. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Chris a few months back, shared @ The Bruery. Brown pour with a khaki head. Aroma is really...off. Nuts, green apple, balsamic vinegar, and olives. Coffee, wood, roast, and chocolate. Some caramel sweetness on the palate. Lots of nuts, balsamic vinegar, and olives. Old chocolate, green apple, cardboard, roast, and lots of wood. Really fizzy and carbonic.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Interesting and tasty. Hints of stout and Granny Smith aftertaste. Can do it but this aged an extra year which may have cut the tart sharpness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured dark with lighter brown head. Chocolate and cream aroma. Taste has a dour beer tart to it, combined with a nice choc stout taste.
The sourness carries through to the aftertaste without being overpowering.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with tan speckles. Nose is fudge, elderberry and musty basement with a touch of coffee bean. Starts with a sharp tang but not quite sour which suits me fine. Rich, medium to full body, a bit chalky. Taste is chocolate, bourbon, tart blackberry, molasses and sweeter blueberry. This one surprised me; could almost pass for a fruit beer. Tasty.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 from State Line. Poured hazy blackish brown with tan head that dissipated quickly. Nose was cherries, funky yeasty malt. Taste of roasty dark malt with tart cherry, cacao, and funky yeasty hoppy finishers. This one had a 75% rate of "I’d buy this if I saw it again", which is exceptional.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, caged and corked. Pours dark and brooding, yet liquid and easy, a thin head. Intriguing aroma, hinting at both sourness and rich chocolate. The flavor delivers, an interesting stout base, with a definite sweet/sour dominating tilt. Some may not care for it, but I love it. (#5170, 7/17/2013)
