3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Churchillís. Hazy brown pour, small off-white head. Roasted malt, light chocolate, strange tasting sour fruit, vinegar, and even coffee in there. This is an odd beer, which is not really working for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark ruby red with a brown tint. Nose is roasty and tart. taste is tart on the front, hint of vinegar, then a fantastic clean complex porter finish. I wish it was more sour and less vinegar, but still a very nice and drinkable beer.
