2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Oh thank you oh so much to Wendy for bringing this to me.
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a slight dark brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a light lacing to die at a nice pace.
The smell had a fairly decent black cherry - is sort of weird bland to sour sort of tart weirdness going on.
The taste was mainly a weird combination of sweet to tart/sour blend of black cherry sort of weird arrangement.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was slightly there for the style and to me was okay.
Overall, uh...just okay kind of beer, nothing to go bonkers about, nice to try but since I live where I live it’s only a matter of time before I can back to PA to try this on tap.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle compliments of big daddy frank, shared with James, al, and Eric. Pours black with medium coffee colored head. Random but light lacing. Aromas are oak, Cabernet grapes, roast, cranberry, currants, blackberry, funk, and some lightly acidic fruits. Flavor is bitter and funky with grapes, cherry, barrel, and complex vino. Good bit of roast. Medium body, lightly sticky. Reminds me of Edith meet cuvée Tomme. Banging .

Gift from SJ for Bull Frog night. This was pretty interesting. Cheery, chocolate, and cola swirled together with roasted malts.

Generously shared by Diego many moons ago, this was a must-try beer for me and I cannot say I was disappointed, even though it was nowhere near the best sour I’ve ever tried. An interesting merger of the roasty, malty character of a stout and the fruity acidic qualities of kriek. Bullfrog certainly went bold for this one, and I long for the day where they recreate this beer so I can try it at peak freshness.

Bottle… Tour of Power Sour Hour 2011 … This beer rocks!… Pours dark brown with a small, beige head. Good retention. The earthy, fruity bouquet provides notes of leather, dark chocolate and dark cherries. Medium-bodied with a raspy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is very tart and offers cocoa and fruity dark cherries. Finishes tangy and modestly bitter Thanks goes out to Maltzilla for sharing this rarity!

Bottle shared by Maltzilla at Tower of Sour Power. I’m gonna follow suit with Darkguardian and Maltzilla in saying that this beer was just incredible. Stole the show that night. It was hard to believe that a beer so dark could hold so much sour quality. The cherry was most certainly there as was the stout presence. It was a perfect mixture of the two.
