Shared at a Lost Abbey sour tasting. Poured a dark cloudy red color with a small off-white head. Aroma was tart cherries with a nice funk note to it. Funky, with barrel notes that rounded this one out pretty well.

wedgie9 (2007) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Tasted on 7/2/12 from a corked and caged 375mL bottle obtained in a trade. Pours an opaque, dark cola brown with an amber tint and a thin tan head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is a nice combination of brown sugar, caramel, dark bread, and a lactic sour lemon peel note. The flavor is much more sour with the lemon and acidity dominating, and the darker malt flavors more in the background. The body is medium with sticky tannins, just lighter than average carbonation and a long, super sour and malty dark chocolate finish.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Cork comes out with a faint pop. Pours hazy reddish brown color with minimal tan head. Sour cherry, wood and acetic aromas. Very sour. Tart cherry flavor with some oak. Medium body with almost no carbonation. Quite acedic. Thanks Craig.

Big thanks to Captain Cougar. Lots of acetic, balsamic vinegar, molasses, candied apple, and prune. One-dimensional, and that one isn’t very good.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Hazy chocolate brown pour with little head. Aroma of soy sauce and spoiled grapes. Flavor is a bitter. Sour and slightly fruity. Notes of cherry and grape. Tart finish. Very dry. Not bad.

Bile and vinegar, toffee, dark fruit and oxidized malts, light cherry. Not enjoyable.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Muddled brown pour with no head. Caramel toffee and acetic acid lead to balsamic vinegar and borderline butter notes. Thick palate with high acidity ugh.

Scopey (7100) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
From bottle at Sour & Bitter 2012. It pours very dark brown, with a decent beige head. The nose is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, funk, toffee, dark fruit, balsamic vinegar, almond, toasted coconut and vanilla. The taste is lemon, grapefruit, Granny Smith apple, dark fruit, moderate acidity, some underlying roasted malt and charcoal flavours and balsamic vinegar. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Very well balanced. This is not usually my favourite sour style, but this one was great!

kappldav123 (5055) - GERMANY - MAY 16, 2012
Bottle sample at Sour&Bitter Copenhagen 2012. Bottle looks awesome. Beer in the glass very dark, almost black, small head. Sour-fruity aroma, like plum. Starts mild sour, fruity-dry, but then more and more dry, also more sour. Dusty-dry. Nevertheless quite well balanced. Sourish finish. Good!
