bhensonb (11257) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Bottle from notalush. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Smells lightly of sour and chocolate. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Flavor is sour and chocolate. Weird - but it truly works. Thought it would finish sour and chocolate. And there is a firm oak background. It developed fruit. Ever more complex. And the "chocolate" fades into earthy, sour, oak in the finish.

marcus (6589) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours brown with a rich tan head and a sour aroma. There is a musty carbonated chocolate flavor with some cherry, pineapple and a slightly bitter oaky finish. Very complex and delicious. This is not a standard sour brown.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2010
From the Rare Beer Club. Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with a large creamy tan head that lingered and produced great lacing. The aroma was sour and tart with notes of bourbon, raisin, wood, cocoa and port wine. The flavor was tart, sour and bitter with notes of cherry, lemon, raisin, port wine, wood and brett. A bit too boozy. The finish was very long and tart with notes of sweet malts, bourbon, raisin, port wine and wood lingering. Fairly full bodied. Exceptional.

Bottle. Pours a clear and dark burgundy beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel, tobacco, vanilla, yeast and fruit. The flavor is malt, fruit, yeast and cherries. The palate is slight alcoholwarmth. Overall a really good beer but with a high level of alcohol.

scoth (513) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Pours dark cherry brown, inky in the glass, with a thick tan head, fine clinging lacing. Aromas of hay, grass, with farmyard notes, toast, toffee, figs, cherry, and wood. Medium body, velvety, crisp, tart, lightly dry. Mildly sweet up front, then medium sourness, with some lingering tartness and a light bitterness in the finish. A nicely done brett, deep, complex, and not over-the-top sour.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 15, 2010
750ml bottle from two sources, BlackForestCO (thanks Jake, your bottle is still unopened) and Sam from H24, thanks for bringing this to our fantasy football draft. Rating #87. Pours a super dense dark brow with a thin light tan head full of tight tiny bubbles. Slight hard candy sweet aroma, light sourness and a toasty underlying scent that was hard to pin down, very interesting. Light tartness, but very silky at the same time, light carbonation and more of sweet toasty malt that I got in the aroma, not bad. (1349)

bottle, muddy brown color with good tan foam, aroma of woody caramel, flavor is caramel, raisin with an offputting sour that floats on the surface
