2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
So sad to see this beer fall so far. Had it on tap and there is little to no porter left in this beer. The sour has taken over the beer completely. So I waited anxiously for the bottle release hoping for redemption. The first bottle unfortionatly was flat as it could be. As was the bottle tonight, I have to say I will be pouring out the the rest of this bottle. Was my favorite sour of all time. Maby next year river town

6/11/2015: Rivertown Old Sour Cherry Porter... Dark and somewhat thick, quite smooth on the tongue. Lots of cherry in the aroma and tart, sour cherry in the flavor along with rich caramel and some chocolate malt. The overall acidity is balanced and this beer is very good. That having been said, it’s not worth the ridiculous price tag that they have on it... Draught at Party Town in Florence, KY.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque cherry brown color, beige rim head, dots of lace. Aroma of sour cherry. Taste is more sour cherry than porter, to the point that I ask, "Where’s the Porter?" It grows as it moves to an alcohol laced finish, leaving me with a decent sipping brew, but not a Porter in any way.

Lets go to the Jockey Box
Rivertin Old Sour Pumpkin, shared by friend, not in living room, for make the taste!
Pours a dark brown with a small head and some lacing on the glass.
The aroma is lots of oak, lots of cherry, some chocolate & roast are in there as well. It’s got a lot of tart fruit and funk in the bouquet.
The flavor is centered around tart cherries with lots of chocolate. The beer is sour and has some mild vinegar notes with lots of tart fruit & woody oak character.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the February 2015 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small foamy off white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was tart, sour and vaguely fruity. The flavor was very tart, sour, dry, chalky and had hints of vague fruits and vanilla. Long tart and sour finish. Medium body. Ok

Bottle from a trade in Cincy. Shared with Dan, Danni, and Josh at my place. Snifters. Pours a very dark brown with a moderate light brown head that was short lived. The aroma was delightful with sour cherry notes, chocolate, dark fruits, and oak barrel. The taste (once warmed) was very nice with sour cherries, currants, raspberries, dark chocolate, and barrel. Delicate mouth, somewhat of a velvety finish. Somewhat tart, but not like Tart of Darkness.

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours murky and dark brown with a fleeting, off-white head. The nose is acidic and acetic offering fruity cherries, deeply roasted malts and enjoyable vinous notes. Full-bodied and thick with airy carbonation. The flavor is roasty, sour and vinous - red wine and red wine vinegar – with a heaping helping of black cherries. Thanks to my good friend, growler, for popping the top off this world-class beer!

Bomber, 2013 vintage. Thanks Matt. Pours a dark brown with a very minimal head. Looks like a porter. Smell is sour and tart. That was unexpected. My one knock is is there is a touch of astringent on the back end of the aroma. Kind of unpleasant. Otherwise this beer is damn good. Taste is acidic sour. Tart cherries. If I was blindfolded I would swear it tasted like a kriek. Looks like a porter. Tastes like a wild/sour. Interesting beer.

Murky brown pour with a tan head. Nose is nice and tart with notes of cherry and chocolate. Tart in the flavor with cherry and some green apple skins. A little cocoa shows as well. Light bodied with a tart finish.
