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.

GenDV138 (2868) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2015
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.

BuckeyeBoy (3249) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 21, 2015
On tap at beer junction. Pours out a dark amber topped with a small tan head. Nose is roast coffee and sour cherries. Taste is heavy cold press coffee then the nice oscar comes in with a good sour kick.

On tap at Green Bench for Foeder for Thought. Pours a cloudy brown with beige head. The aroma is roast coffee bean and vinegar. Thin mouth, roast, very sour, leathery, very good.

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ Churchillís Pub ][ $2-3 ][ Tasting Flute ][ 3.7.15 ]
>> Pours a clear deep amber near brown with a ring of weak foam. Nose is mild coffee and lemon, fairly simple. Taste is heavy lemon juice, very citric, puckering, one note with coffee backend, more coffee grinds than rich coffee. Not really integrated- feels like a mix of two separate beers.
