1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Faint aromas of nuts and roasted malt, but mostly dominated by sour dough on the back end. As for the taste I can detect some sort of nuts followed by a noxious sour flavor, this bottle probably has infection issues. My mouth feels very slick and gross after drinking this too. :(

thanks to FlandersNed for sending me a bottle
Dark brown pour with a thin head, this beer tasted like a very tart flemish red, not a stout. drain pour.

Another infected bottle; pours black with huge carbonation. Taste is very sour, a bit sweet and bitter yet. Roasted aroma, little else. I’d like to try a non-infected one, but this is evidently a common problem with this beer. Maybe get a newer one; I stored this one for a while before drinking.

12oz bottle from suzyg. Pours a thin black with a crazy alki seltzer head...infected? Earthy peanut butter riding low with some roasted malt and then huge balsamic tartness...should this be a sour? Thin body with cotton like fizz. Whoa! Tart and like licking a 9v dipped in skippy creamy peanut butter. Man, I loved Shorts before tonight...how about some QC guys.
