Bottle, thanks to my business-travelling wife. Pours a very dark brown color with a reddish tinge and a moderate light brown head on it. Nose has some dark fruit elements and candied sugar coming through. Taste is slightly sweet with dark fruit coming through, including raisins, and just a bit of caramel. A bit too sweet for me.

Bottle shared by Douglas. I am honored to have my first Iowa tick come from the most notorious brewery in the US. A: Dark mahogany, creme colored head. N: Toffee, hazelnut, caramel, vanilla, some soy and coffee. T: Slightly tart, mostly sweet. M: Medium body. A bit sticky. No alcohol. O: Frankly, this isnít bad, and thatís almost more disappointing. Itís approximately 4 years old, which I guess aged the suck out of it. Either way, it tastes like artificial hazelnut sweetener, so do with that information what you will.

750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small white head. A big oxidized malty fruity nose. Not terrible, oxidized, sweet toffee, caramel. Cherries, light fruit. I think the age helped it. Light sourness.

Bottle sample from "Douglas88". Colour...dark brown with a thick ecru head. Nose...musty dark fruits, wet earth and brown sugar. Palate...dry, lightly sweet and dank with notes of burnt dates and turbinado. Thereís a dry soil thing going on, as well as a bit of maduro tobacco. I canít quite understand why this has such horrid ratings. Iím pretty sure I know what constitutes a decent beer and whereas this isnít a Grammy winner, itís ok stuff. And, the other RB/BA dudes here agree.

deyholla (7002) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near clear deep ruby amber brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and dark grains with a bit of mustiness underlying. Flavor has notes of bread, sour red fruits, a bit of chemical and some chocolate. Doesnít really come together for me.

TomDecapolis (4546) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Pours a deep amber brown with a creamy off white head that laced. Aroma of dirty socks, wood, light sourness and very earthy. Flavor of musty leaves that are rotting, nuts, caramel, dirt and a light sourness. Really kind of dirty.

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.

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.
