Sampled on tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pitch black, with a big, creamy, beige head. Nose is strong, roasted coffee, and almost nothing else. The flavor is a clash of black bread, lemon juice, and sour cherries. Sweet and very sour. Medium to heavy body, oily, and very acidic. Points for originality, but the flavor is confusing and weird.

Nitro tap at Happy Gnome. A nitro coffee sour beer? WTF? Cool! Coffee aroma, sour dark fruit taste. Great nitro head. Really fun beer.

Nitro at Happy Gnome. Pours a hazy brown with a thick tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of coffee with roasted malts and dark grains supporting as well as a hint of tart red fruit. Flavor has sour red fruit up front with a growing dark grain, roasted malt and coffee presence.

Nitro draft at Tap and Handle. Black appearance with a lingering light tan head. Very nice roasted coffee aroma with notes of chocolate, dark malts and light sour notes. Similar flavor, dark, malty and lightly sour with light roasted bitterness and a light tart puckering feel. Medium body. A pretty nice blend overall.

Draft at NB. The aroma hit me as I was walking and holding the beer down near my waist. Itís that powerful. Deep, earthy espresso, a bit of cocoa, a very subtle background balsamic note. Purple-brown, mostly opaque, thin tan head. Incredibly unique flavor -- leads with oily dark roast beans, then tart cherries and balsamic hit. Mild coffee and chocolate notes linger at the finish, along with larger than average acidity. Medium-light body, mild co2. Incredibly unique.

shrubber85 (9617) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 23, 2015
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.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2015 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. 10/15 Definitely harder to finish a full pour.
