Draft at NB. The aroma hit me as I was walking and holding the beer down near my waist. Itís that powerful. Deep, earthy espresso, a bit of cocoa, a very subtle background balsamic note. Purple-brown, mostly opaque, thin tan head. Incredibly unique flavor -- leads with oily dark roast beans, then tart cherries and balsamic hit. Mild coffee and chocolate notes linger at the finish, along with larger than average acidity. Medium-light body, mild co2. Incredibly unique.

Draft. Coffee ground, caramel malt, and hay aroma. Dark amber with large head. Sweet woody coffee ground and caramel malt flavor with balsamic vinegar aftertaste that is more apparent as it warms. Interesting.

Tap at The Oak. Sour coffee beer? Ok. Murky brown pour with a big head that quickly fades to a thin film. Aromas are iced coffee, grape skins, and light vinegar. Tastes ultra tart and sour. Lots of vinegar and lemon, faint coffee beans, dark fruit and a touch of roast. Unique stuff but I wish it was smoother. Goes down a bit rough.

Only the 2nd coffee sour Iíve ever had and nothing like the first. Very unique and lots of fun. Big big coffee first aroma and flavor. Dark fruit and oak tannins and finished sour. Cool brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey. Dark amber brown with beige head. Aromas of roasty notes and big coffee, light tart notes. Taste is quite the opposite with big tart and vinegary notes, light coffee. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Donít know if I could drink a full glass but itís an interesting and unique brew.

On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy roasted coffee and some faint nuttiness. Itís a dark brown with some orange highlights. It has a one finger khaki head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate coffee, ash, roast, and a touch of nuts. The finish has moderate-heavy sour lemon and faint vinegar. Itís light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, I donít get the whole dark sour thing, but this is better than most dark sours Iíve had. Itís probably because itís much heavier on the coffee than most.

Wow, this is unique. But super tasty. Great coffee aroma and it has toasty notes and even feels a bit like a port. The sour hits on the backend a the coffee stays around the whole time but never overpowers. Has a bit of smoky and spice flavors and really is worth a taste.
