Pours a thick black on tap with fluffy brown head that leaves good lace. Aroma of sour phenolic roast, acetone and nail polish remover. Taste follows, sour in the wrong way. Too much like nail polish remover, no bueno.

Unique aroma and taste that works out to be smooth with a dark but thin pour and pleasant mouthfeel.

Brewvival Trip Beer 111. Draft at Brewvival. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention. Tart aroma with notes of chocolate and stone fruits. The taste is chocolate, tart fruits, earthy notes, vanilla. Medium bodied.

Wow, this was interesting... Black pour. Aroma was big and sour, vinegar and dark roasted malt. Good bit of booze. Weird. Palate was super rich and viscous. Easily one of the biggest bodies of anything I tried at the fest. So, so rich. This was too much for me. Big time sour and rich. This may have been the only thing I poured out.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
This is a barrel aged Imperial Porter that has gone super sour in a very off way. Looks like an imperial stout, intense black with big frothy tan khaki head. Ethyl acetate galore. Nose it pretty much just model airplane glue. Flavor is a bit more bitter prunes with the chemical notes right behind. Drain pour for sure.

Draft at Brewvival, first beer of the fest, poured by Jeppe, thank you sir! Cloudy orange amber color, thick cream colored head. Aroma of stonefruits, vanilla. Taste is softly sour vanilla and cream, moderate barnyard funkiness and a bit of dust, subtle brandy. Very nice stuff.
