Bottle. Black in color with a small khaki head. Looks like a dark tomme that also smells better. Smells like blackberries. I’m drunk, but damn this tastes delicious. Boys, this is better than a shit hawk hitting a shitfan.

Draft at Bru Craft. Opaque dark brown pour with just a hint of foam. Very dark red fruit flavors. Balsamic vinegar. Blackberries. Currants. Plums. Molasses. Pecans. Dark chocolate cordials. Liquorice. Green apples. Dried blueberries. Nose is a bit harsh but the taste is full, complex and has a nice sharp sour pucker. Dark but juicy. A great sipper.

wedgie9 (2638) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Tasted on 1/27/13 from a capped 375mL bottle. Pours completely opaque black with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is dark and milk chocolate, coffee, and just a touch of some sour funk underlying. The flavor is more sour vinegar and vinous up front with all of the milk and dark chocolate and coffee from the nose. Sour up front, stout on the back. The body is medium with average carbonation, plenty of tannin, and a long sour and roasted finish.

vyvvy (5888) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2014
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.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2014
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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.

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.
