jstraw (1942) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Black with no head (barrel-aged) / Rich nose of coffee, molasses, chocolate, and sour dark fruit / Medium body, no carbonation, a touch thin, modestly sour, some sweetness, with good balance and bitter finish / Sour, subdued flavors of dark roast coffee, licorice, bittersweet chocolate, plum, prune, strawberry, and balsamic vinegar / This being my second DH sour, clearly they haven’t mastered the technique as both have been flat; however, positive elements are evident.

djd07 (4938) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2015
750 bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is leather, chocolate, and sour apple. Medium mouth, sour chocolate and bourbon, odd mess.

Christpuncher (1635) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Big fan of this one. Not too boozy, slightly sweet. Not too sugary. Slightly roasted grain flavored with a sweet finish. Pours black with a tan head ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BVery (7382) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Sampled via bottle at WTWBA 2014 in Minneapolis. Deep brown pour. A little sour and roasty. I thought the mouthfeel on this was a little flat.

DocJitsu (1127) - Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Pours a used oil black with a dark, orange-brown head. Doused campfire nose with some sour aroma. Wet, smooth and thick. A bit of a plastic flavor. Some sour wood. Dark chocolate.

(Backlog) Bottle of fantasy tasting at Paul’s, thanks jtclockwork for bringing this. Black pour with brown head. Tart, sour malts, fruit and roasted flavors. Tart but roasted and dark malt aromas.

EyeAmBaldman (354) - Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Pours black, like motor oil, with a thin tan head. Bourbon on the nose. Thick mouthfeel with a nice bourbon finish. Better than the New Holland Dragon’s Milk.

fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Duece roughly 1 year old. Black pour with thick foamy head. Big sourness, dark malt and dark fruit with a slight dry finish. Odd combo that doesn’t mesh the greatest but not bad.

Draft at 4 Elf 2013 - big sour aromas with some roast . Sourness wasn't overwhelming . Pretty good , would try again . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SpongeRuiner (865) - Michigan, USA - DEC 17, 2013
On tap at the 4 Elf party. A decent sour roasty smell. A lot thinner feel than I would have guessed. Sourness seems a bit off. Alcohol shows itself a little bit in the back end. It wasn’t very drinkable. Overall I’d say it was ok.
