Bottle share @ Surly Darkness day 2013. Pour is deep ruby with a medium sized off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma is of tart fruit, acidic funk, port wine, and grain. Flavor is similar with a large amount of raspberry jam thrown in. Mild vinegar in the finish.

Delicious sour beer!!! I only had a small taste at a beer share but would love to drink this again. Sour in the nose up front and following thru all day long in the flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep ruby, almost black... it’s got a small head that leaves some lacing on the glass.
The aroma is nicely pungent, it’s got a mild balsamic vinegar note, plenty of dark berries, and some light woodiness. It’s funky and a touch lemony.
The flavor is fruity & sour, it’s got some nice dark berry flavor. It’s really nicely tart and not overly vinegary. Modestly dry, cool, & easy to drink. Would re-pete.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Deep burnt brown sugar, reddish notes, dirty and thick, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing. Soft to moderate nose of unripened cherries and wood. Sweet vinegar as well. Comes across on the nose as a somewhat pedestrian Sour Red/Brown. Minor tartness up front, slightly dry, witih both ripened and unripened cherries. I would say ripened only because this one isn’t too sour, only slightly tart. Has a slight woody aspect, assuming from barrel aging. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finishes like a very mild and pedestrian Sour Red/Brown. Both new and young cherries, sweet vinegar, and woody aspects. Decent, but could stand to be much drier and sour. Thanks Bob!

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours ruby. Aroma is funky, sour, and a little wood. The taste follows the aroma and adds more wood and red wine from the barrels with a touch of chocolate and tobacco. The brett provides a nice tart funk without being too much. Pentagram is dark and evil. Sour, tart mouthfeel but also chewy. Extra points for the sick bottle art and wax seal!!
