Aroma of sour red berries and funky yeast. Pours a deep dark black with a rapidly disappearing tan head and no lacing. Initially, the taste was disappointing. Too much carbonation up front drowned out any flavor what-so-ever, however, a nice sourness appeared in the finish and aftertaste. As the beer set, some of this complaint disapeared. Light, crisp, fizzy carbonation mouthfeel. Overall, while initially disappointing, I want to give this sour another visit.

Bottle share with the Lizard Boyz. Small snifter pour was dark brown with very small head. Aroma was coffee, dark cocoa nibs, hint of vanilla and caramel with a red grape must. Taste was dark roast coffee, cocoa nibs, some vanilla, tart dark fruits. Well balanced tart versus fruit and dark chocolates. Medium body and medium carbed.

Bottle. Dark brown pour, with a light tan head. Roast, coffee grounds, vinegar, cherry, acidic, oak, leather, and some harsh astringency. Im not a huge fan, but it was pretty good.

Bottle share. Blend 6. Looks like a stout, drinks like a sour. Lots of skunk going on here with enough stout to hold up the body and backbone. Ill try my bottle all by myself soon-hahahahaha.

Crazy beer sour coffee tart and then bitter. Green apple subtle sourness with some vanilla and coffe in aroma and flavor. I really liked this but I can see some not appealing to. Give it a try for sure.

Bottle. Black pour with a huge head that fades normally to a thick ring. Leaves great lacing. Very cool aroma of coffee grounds, cherry skins, lemon peel, oak, vanilla, and light chocolate. Tastes slightly sour. Big cherry skins, red grapes, oak and vanilla. Coffee comes later with some leather and citrus. Medium to full body. I liked this more than I thought I would.
