Aromas of chocolate, toasted nuts, sour yeast, dark fruits, cherries, and dank earth. Dark brown with bronze highlights, and a small, fading, tan head. Sour, roasty, fruity, dry, and earthy. Medium-full body, low-moderate carbonation with a bright tingling sensation coming from the sour yeast strain(s), and finishes with roasty, earthy, funky notes. Delicious!

Bottle. Been saving this review for a rainy day. Bottle compliments of my old lost abbey connect Alen. Thanks for sending this as an extra! Poured a beautiful murky sienna brown with a small to med off white head. Stood around forever and left behind some rings of lace. Aromas and flavor are dusty oak, lactic yeast, sour berries and cherries, rich malt, and funk. As it wamred in my glass it got super rich and complex, lots of dark cherry balanced out by the oaky smoothness and light carbonation. Excellent sour from Tomme.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Pours unclear and quite murky brown with almost no head. The aroma brings some tart and sour yeast notes. The flavor is quite sour as well, bringing a pleasant tartness and phenolic notes as well, quite nice. The body is just right, full and bringing a puckering to the cheeks.

Bottle generously shared by ipa247. Thanks Jeff. Pours a muddy brown with no head and no lacing on the glass. The aroma is lots of brown sugar, caramel, some cherry, bourbon, and some vanilla. There is also a bit of acetic acid. The taste is sweet and tart with brown sugar, some cherry, a bit of leather, and some bourbon. The finish is tart with a bit of brown sugar. Medium-full body. Low carbonation.

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 (2638) - 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.
