Generously shared by one of the fine Portland RB folks at a tasting - Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has light tartness, caramel and berries. It has a medium body that is smooth and has some grainy light carbonation. It begins with lots of dark berries, smooth roast, richness and sharp citric acidity. The finish is crisp for a dark 10% beer. Yet another excellent beer in the memorable tasting.

Bottle... Poured near black, thinned to reddish hues towards the bottom of the glass. Mild forming head. This was a great darker sour. Mildly dry, good acidity with tart vinous fruit, black cherry, and barrel notes. Some sweetness and candied sugars came through to prevent it from being too puckering.

Bottle @ Bobby’s house, shared by GT. Dark brown pour with a small off-white head. Baslamic vinegar, cola, wood, and lemon. A touch of coffee, licorice, and plenty of dark fruit. Nice sweet and sour flavor. Balsamic vinegar, dark fruit, and licorice. Some lemon juice, green apple, and a bit of wood. Nice.

GT2 (8440) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
375mL. Pours a clear, deep amber red with low foam. Okay for dark sour. Nose is quite funky, a bit footy, some gorgonzola funky cheese. Taste is on the Flemish red/dark sour side of things. Big red wine, vinous, some cocoa. Interesting combo. Palate is lactic, rich, blackberry, sharp. Very nice.

Mora2000 (5705) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some dark fruit and toffee notes. The flavor is a strong mix of dark fruit, grapes, toffee and oak, with a light amount of tart and sour character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(375ml botle thanks to brystmar) cloudy deep brown. Nose of vinegar, cranberry, sweaty socks. Taste of cranberry, vinegar, quite tart, the palate fatigue is not my favorite, really vinegary.

Had this many times, slightly over 1yr since my last sample and this has certainly changed. More pucker than before, a bit of black licorice, oaky barrels galore. Nice stuff.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Pours dark unclear black with a big creamy beige head and some small lacing. The aroma is wild bugs, yeast, nail polish remover. The flavor brings some big puckering tart and fruity yeast notes pretty quickly that has a fairly dry ending. The body is full and satiating.

Tmoney99 (10670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, spice, sour and tannic wood aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tannic flavor with a medium to heavy tannic wood dry and sour fruit finish of moderate to long duration. This is another solid beer.
