Aurelius (4657) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Sweetish, sourish dark Belgian aroma with some dark fruit. A bit ragged... cherry stout tasting, body is a bit on the light side for what I expected. Tangy, fruity, lacking complexity. On tap, Brass Tap, Tallahassee Midtown.

DenverLogan (866) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Poured from big bottle into a Lost Abbey glass. Pours muddy brown with amber head and lace. Aroma of malt and sour fruit rind. Medium carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of roasted malts, melon rind, tart fruit juice, caramel, oak & lemon zest, The dark roasted malts I might expect in a stout are challenged by tart fruit, some spice, and yeast esters to add complexity and uniqueness. As it warms up I get a sweet & tart finish that’s intriguing.

Travlr (15912) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Draft at Churchkey’s 5th anniversary, courtesy of Bryan’s friend and Eric, thanks! Opaque dark brown color, bright tan head. Aroma of lightly funky coffee. Taste is cocoa, coffee, just enough of a touch of funk to be noticeable but not overwhelming. Light body. Nice one.

slowrunner77 (7100) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"Interesting belgian-ish style stout. Has elements of a stout and a Belgian...light roast, chocolate, dark fruit and spice. The x factor here is Sam Adams special yeast, causing juuuust a bit of twang in the aroma and flavor, and adding a unique level of tart apple like complexity."
