3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2005 Looks like coke - maybe my bottles were a bit flat. Malty, sour and (here’s a word I’ve never used to describe a beer before) "tangy".
Quite nice, but a bit thin for my taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark red with a short tan head. Aroma is tart, infertile fruits, some oak, citrus, and horseblanket. Flavor is sweet and very farm animal. A slight pleasant tartness and hints of lemon and a very slight malty bread note. Medium bodied and foamy on the palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells dark and thick, more like malt than beer. Dark but clear, hardly any head, only minimal lacing. Dark and malty on flavour, there is a lot of berries on the after flavour. A bit too much alcohol prescence. Smooth and creamy, but not too exciting on the swallow. Not bad, but a bit of an unusual blend of flavours - this seems more like a beer experiment than a true beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep maple syrup brown with little head. Malty aroma of apple, pear, oak, and sour notes. Flavor is a little underwhelming, but what is there is good. Nice sourness and dry finish. A little watery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent oaken brew. Pours brown with a faint off-white head. Aroma is woody with basement funk. Taste is funky, malt, slightly sweet. It also has a fermented fruit kind of note going on too. Finishes nice, sweet, and mostly dry. Overall, it’s not grand slam, but it does have some nice interesting qualities.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Eh, it’s okay. Not really what I was expecting. The color is the best part of this beer. Beautiful dark reddish brown. Looks way better than it tastes. Smells like subtle fruits with a little twang but nothing that’s going to change you. Taste is kind of weird. Not really sure what it is. There is a really hidden tartness that I think would make it a lot better if it would shine through more. It’s not terrible but it just isn’t that stellar.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle code 41022 from Sour Power pack @45° into Zwiesel 14.7oz cognac snifter; pours up a lively but controlled off white head over a mahogony body; aromas and flavors of cinnamon roll filling, apple skin, faint cherry and dusty wood with a mild spike of tartness from a light-medium body; decent, but leaves me looking for more intensity from the fruit, funk, and sour components

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2006 Malty fruity complex flavour that’s lightly sour. Great beer, the only problem was I only had a 250ml bottle...
Rerate: 2006-02-09 Not nearly as good this time, lighter body and hardly sour at all 13/20.
