Draft at fobab 2014. Smelled like fresh super strong coffee. Tasted like nice tart cherry sour. Somehow they pulled it off. Definitely the most unique beer I had at fobab.

Draft at Release the Funk. Deep reddish amber color. Huge coffee aroma with a light sour edge. Taste has nice soft roast and soft sourness. Tasty.

arminjewell (6326) - lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of coffee grounds, some vinegar, earth, oak, hints of chocolate, touch of dark fruit, some more bean like notes, a bit odd. Taste is a mix of coffee, vinegar, slight oak into some spice, touch of funky notes, finishing fairly bitter. Too weird for me.

JohnnyJ (4496) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Draft at Stone Sour Fest 2013. Murky dark brown pour, with a small light tan head. Coffee is dominate in the aroma and flavor. Sour fruit, berry, vinegar, sweetness, and notes of oak.

brokensail (11371) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Stone Sour Fest 2013. Milky brown pour with a very small khaki head. Huge coffee aroma up front. Sour cream, a bit of vinegar, and some lemon. The flavor is intensely sour but still retains some strong coffee. Lemon zest, sour berries, and vinegar. Really strange, but I like it.

onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2013
At Avery Sour Ale Fest 2013. Murky opaque chocolate brown hue, no head. Aroma has a huge amount of cold pressed coffee with a touch of funk and chocolate. Flavor is calmer yet more complex than the nose. Nice cold-coffee up front with some strong bactillic funky wood, earthiness, and a little rusty toffee.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Tap @ Avery SourFest 2013. Pours a hazy orangish brown appearance with a light brown head. Dark chocolate, roasty, cheap Folgers coffee, light tangy fruity aroma. Cola, tangy berry, burnt coffee flavor. Disappointing.

Steve_0 (2829) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Tap at 4th Annual Boulder SourFest (2013). Murky amber pour with a big cream head and good lacing. Huge green coffee, peppers, a touch of roast, wood, cocoa, and cheap espresso in the aroma. Taste is sour coffee, light berries, a touch of vinegar, slightly woody, huge green peppers, and dark fruits. Medium body with light carbonation. I was not a fan - bleh!

On tap t Avery Sour Fest poured a hazy brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of coffee and bread. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of coffee, bread and light citrus with a crisp dry tart lingering coffee finish.
