Tmoney99 (13259) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Draft. Poured a black color with an average creamy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, chocolate, cherry and wood alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate malt, nutty and dark sweet fruit flavor with a heavy dark cherry sweet & sour and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Dogbrick (11180) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Sample at Jackie Os as part of Ohio Brew Week. The beer pours black with a bit of ruby around the edges and a thin light beige head that diminishes quickly. Minimal lacing noted. The aroma consists of tart cherries and roasted malt. Full-bodied with a moderately sour cherry character and notes of chocolate malt and a bit of oak. The finish is fruity with a tart cherry aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Growler This beer rocks! Pours pitch black with a tiny, creamy, khaki head with no staying power. The nose is a mlange of dark chocolate, bourbon, a hint of red wine, sour cherries and a faint nutty component. Full-bodied and oily with faint carbonation. The flavor is a swirl of sour cherries and burnt chocolate The acidic component is dominant here. Finishes tart, mildly burnt and moderately bitter. Thanks so much to darkguardian for sharing yet another world class beer with the south Florida crew!

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Sample on tap at the brewpub. Black color, minimal brown head. Bits of lace. Suprisingly sour - I didnt realize this would have wild yeast in it going in, but its a nice and tart flavor. Light crisp carbonation, with an acidic light bite., and some warmth. Long sour / tart roasty aftertaste, interesting. Fruity, and roasty aroma, notes of chocolate.

phaleslu (9255) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Draft at Jackie-Os on opening weekend of Ohio Beer Week. Pours a dark brown, not opaque, with a small tan head. Notes of sour cherries, chocolate, earth, oak, toast, brown sugar, vanilla, bourbon, and some fruity funk. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, sour mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Sour stouts really arent my thing, but this one was good.

Draft at Jackie Os. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small fine beige head. The aroma is chocolate, barrel notes, dark cherry that is both sweet and tart with some acidity and wild character. The flavor has dark chocolate, bourbon, wood, black cherry, tart, red wine, acidity; with everything working together nicely. No bottle share allowed me to enjoy more of these solid offerings than I did in the past.

TheAlum (6900) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Sampler flight on tap at the brewpub (Athens, OH). Pours a rich opaque thicker blackish hue, dark and thick with bigger cakey dark brown head. Dies to a firm film that laces ok. Aromas are bretty, funk, sour cherries. Roasty, cocoa, bourbon spirit and vanilla, gentle oak presence come into the fold. Richer aromas, cherries and brett really strike a firm note. Initial is heavier end of medium bodied, offering firm tart cherries and funky cobwebby brett. Wet oak, spirit related heat, roast and toast, some cocoa hit the palate firmly as it starts to do some work. Sour cherries come in firmly, toasty, cocoa, some red wine and dark fruit elements. Middle is a bit thinner, funky as the heat and barrel elements strike the palate firmly. Very interesting, a touch hot with great cherry influence, firm barrel and growing heat. Roast, toast, coffee, and cocoa elements stay behind but do their part. Really interesting brew here.

JaBier (6820) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Growler brought back by Dogbrick. Pours pitch black with a medium tan head. Sour wild yeast and cherry aroma with roast and a bit of chocolate. Acidic sour flavor with lots of tart cherry. Roast and chocolate creep in at the finish. More sour than the raisin version, so depending what mood youre in, your choice may vary.

Poured on draft. Pretty much an inky black with a dark brown head of foam. Aroma is primarily boozy bourbon with an accentuation on sour cherries and chocolate.The wild yeast plays nicely off the cherries in this giving it an interesting feel. The bourbon and cherries are the predominant flavors in the taste but they give way to a wonderful tart finish. This would make for a pretty cool dessert if it were made. Bourbon glazed sour cherries drizzled with melted chocolate. This one is probably my favorite of the first two Dark Robustics.
