2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at One Funky Afternoon at Jackie O’s on 04/02/2011: Pours a very dark brown color with hints of red. Thin beige head that recedes to an outer ring quickly. Funky, tart raspberry aroma with an off stale malt quality. Medium body with a very tart berry flavor along with touches of malt and spice. The finish is fruity with a sour aftertaste. Glad I got to try this version but it did not seem to hold up well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This poured a dark red/brown color, very murky, with basically no head. Aroma was very vineous, more sherry like than sour, with definite notes of raspberries in the noes. Flavor was much more wine like than the newer versions, raspberry tarts, and light funk with vanilla in there too. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was on tap for brew week. It was the first time i had seen a soured porter. It actually worked okay. There was not a great deal of sourness in this one but what was there complimented the raspberry pretty well. It is exciting to see small places like this putting out styles like this.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled during One Funky Afternoon on 4/2/11. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of sour raspberry, dark malts, chicken flavored ramen noodles and a vegetal character that’s not good. Flavor of raspberry and a bit of metal with a dark malt and sour finish. Flavor is decent, but time was not kind to the nose.

Dark brown pour with some garnet hues around the edges. Aroma is raspberry, light aceto/bacter and vanilla. Much more vinous than the other offerings on tap, still very solid. Notes of cherry,vanilla, chocolate and vinegar. Thanks to brad for briefly bringing this outta retirement .
