wedgie9 (2101) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Tasted on 12/6/14 on draft at the 12 South Winter Warmer 2014. Pours lightly hazy golden with an average white head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is primarily coffee with just a nostril tinge of citrus vinegar sour. The flavor is very uniquely coffee up front moving to the complex sour funk on the back. They are both there, but completely separate. I never thought that I would talk about a beer being disjointed in a good way. The body is medium with some sticky tannin, average carbonation, and a long sour, funky citrus finish.

mcberko (7247) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
On tap at Brouwerís Cafe for Big Wood 2014, pours a deep dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out loads of coffee upfront, with secondary notes of subtle tart fruits. Flavour is beautifully balanced, with an amazing blend of coffee and sour. Finishes more sour, though the coffee is certainly noticeable. Silky smooth on the palate and very clean. Wonderful stuff.

Ferris (5009) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
Draft - Candy coffee bean with a toasty finish. Deep brown with a decent beige head. Coffee and a huge sour hit. Big, bold, paste resetting. Ultimate cleanser.

TheAlum (5950) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Poured at FoBAB 2014 (Chicago, IL). Pours a deeper brownish copper hue, decent haze with lovely orange copper glow through the body. Frothy tannish head stays as a mellow ring, decent lacing and stick around. Aromas are coffee, earthy and dense with some wet grounds, sour cherry and oak. A touch of balsamic, vanillin and toast. More coffee certainly runs the game here. Initial is sour cherries,a. Bit of red wine and baalsamoic, sour dark fruit meet roasty and wet coffee, touches of earth, toast, espresso, faint vanilla. Middle is a bit more sour and lactic, that twangy metallic acidity with earth, coffee surrounding. Gentle cherry, earth and citrus. Backend is a bit dry and roasty, tapering coffee with some yogurt, tannic oak. Some red wine, acidic jabs into the back with more red and dark fruit. Really develops back here as the coffee letís way for more of that sour base. This one certainly grows on me. Richer coffee dominant nose with a more complex sour experience beneath pllaying off that coffee well.

rxeight (1526) - Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2014
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.

Travlr (13511) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 16, 2014
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 (6434) - Hastings, Minnesota, 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 (4559) - 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 (11613) - 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 (4668) - 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.
