3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
4 oz draft pour at Bier Station in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is hazed brown with a well formed light khaki head. Nice lace left on the glass. The aroma is tart sour vinegar along with some malt presence. Wood is present as the beer warms. The taste is the sour brown ale, vinegar soft tart along with a good amount of black cherry. The taste is a bit less clean as it warmed. The palate is medium bodied, active carbonation and sweet sour finish. Decent.

Thank you Daknole for this gem. I went into this thinking the worst, so I was disappointed not to gag. Pours dark brown, actually a big tan head with small retention. Smells pretty bad, really is like dirt leather and dark fruit. Medium carbonation, light body. Taste is leather, burnt dirt, rotten fig, and roasted charcoal. Glad to share this with my closest friends.

Holy hell. WTF. Brown pour. Favors? Compost. Fucking compost. Say what? I think they used rotten trees in this beer or the liquid from the bottom of a dumpster? Yeah, I think thatís it. Fuck.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled thanks to phaleslu for sharing. Pours a cola brown color with a small disappearing beige head. The aroma and flavor has dark fruits, meat, chocolate, tart character, cooked vegetables, smoke, unripe green apples, even a hint of metal. Some of the other CIB beers were not as bad as advertised, but this was not good.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, shared by phaleslu. Hazy brown color. Thin tan head. Couple dots of lace. Tart, farmhousey nose. Big spice, herb, citrus peel in the flavor. Big orange peel. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft carbonation. Dry finish. Lightly tart taste. OK... Whatever this is. Dark, spicy, tart sour. Big herbal flavor, vegetables. Confusing, disjointed stuff. Not completely horrible, though.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
750 ml bottle shipped from Johnís Grocery, thanks to pepsican- thanks again, Andy! Pours a murky brown, muddy, with no head, just some bubbles around the inner edge that fade. Aroma of rotten vegetables, earth, chocolate, sweaty, dirty laundry, sugar, maybe a rotten apple or two. Flavor of plums, chocolate, nuts, tons of vegetables at various stages of life, and dirt. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a fruity, funky mouthfeel. This is fucking terrible. Itís completely off. Itís flat. The label says itís a "Quadruple brown" that is supposed to be "tart" to some degree, which is moronic. Nothing about this piece of shit beer, its name, its label, its description, or anything else makes any sense. I hate it.

Bottle. Aroma is terrible, makes me worried to drink it. Appearance is brown, some head that left rather quickly. There is a video showing how quickly. One of the worst beer I have ever had. Nothing is good about this beer, do not attempt to chug.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Another CIB thanks to Andy. Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Toasted malt, dark fruit, and some metal. A bit of smoke, some sourness, and water. The flavor isnít good, but itís not horribly offensive, either. Sour and a bit metallic. Toasted malt, dark fruit, and some caramel. Raisin, a hint of smoke, and some water.
