Medium brown pour, tan head. Flavors of roasted malt, molasses, sour cherries, leather, earthy funk, red wine grapes, hints of oak. This is very well crafter but I just cannot seem to find a fondness of this style.

Bottle. I missed this release, so hella thanks to felipe for sharing this with me! Pours deep brown to black with a small brown head and decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasty, cocoa, light notes of smoke, vinous. Fairly light on the nose overall. Flavor follows, lightly tart and roasty, some fruity/vinous notes. A bit of oaky astringence leading to a dry finish. Fairly light bodied, but smooth.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle shared at Sean’s Tasting (Ann Arbor, MI). Pours a deeper blackish brown hue, nice haziness in the body with frothy tannish head. Dies to a mellow ring, sticks around as a filmy layer and laces small. Aromas are cocoa and toffee, touches of clove and spice, sour cherries and lemon, lactic elements and funk. Touches of oak, vanilla, and toast. Some decent sourness mixes with that darker malt body. Initial is a bit tart, some firmer lactic elements with cherries, some red fruit, lemony and lactic. Nice tartness, lactic and tart, some cherry, flash ofred fruit up front tapers out. Middle is tart, firmly and sticks well. Lemony and lactic life, some gentle oak, gentle cocoa and roasty toast dustings into the backend. Some gentle spice, richer oak, vanillin and still some nice tart sour lactic elements keep moving on. A nice ode to the base still keeps kicking. Sour and lactic life but still a nice base feel. Very nice, incorporates everything quite well. Tasty.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Dark brownie batter pour with a creamy latte head. Nose of cocoa dust, mild freshly ground coffee, lemon zest, merlot, oak, and a tart lactic sourness. Lots of complexity in the aroma. Flavor is a bit more one dimensional with the ’Pucker overpowering the Chavez’. Loads of soured milk, unripened berry, and green citrus. Missing the roast. Nice velvety mouthfeel. Really good beer!

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Dark brown with a light tan head that dissipates. Very fresh. Earthy farmhouse feel with fruit and sharp barrel sour. Pickle puckering. Mild coffee cocoa roast. Body is thin but it goes great with the sour palate. Sour dominates the roast.

badlizard (5538) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle pour. Dark brown with a fizzy light brown head. Musty and earthy sour fruit and chocolate aroma. Tart silky medium bodied palate. Taste is tart lemon, wine barrel, and earthy dark chocolate with a sharp finish and a lingering sourness. Very good.

popery (1433) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Pours black with a small light brown head. Some lacing, decent retention though there’s not much to retain. The aroma is big on red wine barrel. There’s some chocolate and roast lingering in there but they’re lurking towards the back. Raspberries, cherries, blackberries, red grapes, plums, pluots. Taste is tart and fruity. Not much of the base beer is left. There’s some mild roast and chocolate but even less than the aroma. Lots of berries. Mouthfeel is pretty light with gentle bubbles. Definitely a wild ale feel. Some decent pucker in the finish. This is a very good dark sour. I’m not the biggest fan of dark sours but this is a solid one.

ineedbeer (783) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Aroma is fairly dominated by red wine and oak with some of the base beer present. Light roast, coffee and chocolate. Light acidity in the aroma. As it warms the malt becomes more noticeable. Pours black with a thin light mocha head that recedes to the edges fairly quickly. No lacing and moderate legs. Flavor is very wine forward with a lot of tart berry and cherry notes. Light chocolate and roast, but most of the malt character has receded. The acidity is clean, lactic and well balanced. Much like in the aroma, the malt becomes more noticeable as the beer warms. Medium low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied withe medium low carbonation. Low but present astringency, likely from the acid and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall a good dark sour, but I think I am starting to like dark sours less; the acidify always seems to wash out the base beer. There is a lot of nice fruitiness to it and the acidity is well balanced. Good wine and oak notes.
