Tap at the brewpub. Dark and clear deep cola pour with minimal head. Quite acidic and sour, dark fruit. A bit puckering and dry on the tongue. Excellent.

Concealer (1094) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Tap. Dark brown with tan head. Aromas of tart dark fruit, chocolate, toasted malt, and wood. Flavor is a big tart front with sweet fruit then a toasted malt and chocolate undertone with a oaky finish. Light funk to it. Acidic.

Sweet on the nose, nice tanginess without being overpoweringly sour. Quite sweet and tart. Nicely balanced. Shame this is a limited release - it’s excellent!

DocJitsu (1533) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Pours a dark brown with a khaki head. Brown sugar, smoky, sour, bottom of the garbage can. Wet mouthfeel. Smooth sourness. Oak barrel smoothed the moutfheel and sourness very well.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Draft at RR. Pours a dark, murky cola-brown; thin, light-tan head. Plenty of balsamic vinegar in the aroma, along with lots of red fruitiness and lighter notes of milk chocolate and caramel. Medium-full body, moderate CO2; an acetic-forward sour, though seemingly lactic softness behind; red fruits, roast, citrus, and a light edge of bitter chocolate; bit of a phenolic edge; similar to The Bruery Tart of Darkness, with a slightly rounder and more acetic focus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught @ Russian River Brewing, Santa Rosa, CA
Pours dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, chocolate, oak, tart and hint of caramel. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium sour with a long tart, sour and chocolate finish. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

On tap at the brewpub. It pours a hazy dark brown to black body and a small, dense, light beige head. Lightly vinegar-ish aroma with lots of dried fruits. Some notes of chocolate and coffee. It’s full bodied and quite tart, pleasantly carbonated. Dried fruits, figs and prunes, roasted notes and a tart lemony touch. Lasting finish. Well worth a revisit this one. 130807
