3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
