On tap at the brewpub. 1st rating woooo! Deep amber brown with a tan head. Brown sugar, black cherries, molasses, port wine, aged balsamic vinegar. Really awesome nose. Flavor is even better. Slight milk chocolate and lactose sweetness lasts for a second before a beautiful lactic acidity plows it over and leaves nice lemon pith and grape skin accents behind. So good. Wow.

On tap @ the brewery. Wonderful roasty notes of the porter combined with Russian River’s excellence in sour technique make this a fantastic brew!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled at GABF 2013. Dark brown, nearly black, pour with a very short head. Aroma of sour cherry and apple cider vinegar. Wonderful tart flavor of dark fruit that is rounded out by just a touch of dark chocolate. Finish is tart and satisfying. Outstanding.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Russian River. Black with a tan head. Very tart and acidic. Vinegar, wine, oak. I didn't get much of the porter characteristics though like chocolate or coffee. Still a very good sour ale.

Smell is deep dry fruit with a slight vinegar and citrus. Pours dark and consistent brown-black. Taste starts slightly sweet. At very first it seems like just another porter then quickly the sour builds. Prunes and vinigar top off with grapefruit which lingers at the end.

On draft at the brewpub. It pours a nice dark reddish brown with almost no head. Aroma is awesome with black current and tart cherry fruit and some light notes of balsamic, funk and dark malts. No roasted malt. The flavor is tart and leathery with black cherry, balsamic and perceptible roasted malt in a funky finish. Great complex tart dark fruit character. Loved it.
