2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.
