Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Mostly black all around with a HUGE, mocha colored head that lasts for days, chunky & perched atop the black brew. Aroma is kind of strange & all over the place with lots of clashing elements... grass, mild Brett funk, wood, pineapple, roast, more grass, citrus peel, bubblegum (hinting at Belgian yeast), hint of cocoa powder... Quite a lot to take in all at once. Taste starts with a bit of char & roasted malt, even with faint coffee beans, leading into a big pot of ashy, peppery, & herbal hops... Notes of zesty grass & fruity orange peel play over the roasted malt, leading to a quite dry & staunchly bitter finish. Unique, that’s for sure, but the flavor combinations don’t compliment each other as gracefully as I’d hoped. Still good overall, but my expectations were higher.

Dark black in color, thick foamy brown tan head... Aroma of citrus hops, roasted malts, earthy notes.... Flavor is fairly ashy and earthy, lots of burnt malts, funk, dry hop finish... Okay , not my favorite from them ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ home, from WholeFoods SF. Pours very fizzy black with huge beige head. Funky nose idd, pissy. Taste more sour, salmiac, dry bitter end. Curious beast.

bottle, once you get usd to the black, roasty &bsour/funky combo this bers is quite good. Black pour, active mouthfeel, roasted malts, funky yeastiness, fruity floral farmhouse notes. nice

One funky bottle! Had this last maybe two years ago, remembered how funked up it was and still surprised. Here’s a beer that shows you the barnyard funk flavors of brett. Sweaty horse? Gym socks? Barnyard must? Check, check, check. Like a sheep’s milk cheese that is almost too much but still good. And then mix that up with dark roasted malts to complement. The result is unique. As strong as the funk is (have I been clear?) this is somehow a pretty drinkable beer, a testament to the wizards at Prairie.

A surprising beer. Dark and sour, not the obvious combination. Actually, the roasted qualities overpower its tartness, sadly, but still a really good beer.

Bottle. Surly Darkness 2014. Good beer with a pleasant sourness that wasn’t too strong.

Bottle shared by Bvery at Darkness day. Pours dark brown with big head. Strong sour funk smell with some citrus. Taste of bitter hops not much sour. Bitter finish. Okay beer.

October 25, 2014 - bottle at Darkness Day. Dark brown with nice head and lacing. Little bit of roasted malt, hops and sourness in aroma and taste. Thanks, Brian!

Bottle. Dark murky brown pour with a nice long lasting head. I’m getting Brett and mild roast. This is pretty good.
