3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2013 Vintage on Tap - Sharp acidity all the way through but strangely balanced by the malts, a delicious dark sour my only complaint is the price of the bottle is a little high.

Strong vinegar in the smell and taste which is awesome. Still contains the roasty qualities of the stout but sour all the way through. A fantastic beer.

At the bruery tasting room. It is delicious and tarty. I loves the stout elements as well, but wished there was just a little more

Pours a deep dark brown with caramel colored head. The aroma is sour with barnyard notes, cherry, and raspberry. The flavor is again sour barnyard with a finish of raspberry chocolate.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mostly tart, little darkness. Except in the appearance. Not sure how people pick up chocolate in this. Sour cherry throughout. Mouth-puckering tartness. 100% cranberry juice-like lingering finish.
More like the Dark (as in the misery) of Tartness. But, hey, I’m not really a fan of sours.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Aroma of sour fruit, chocolate, oak, and a bit if funk. Appearance is totally black with a thin tan head. Taste is sour fruit, chocolate, roasted malt, oak, and vanilla. Full body with low carbonation. Overall a great, unique beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2015 Sampled at GABF 2013. Dark brown/black with a beige head. Roasted malt, tart fruit, oak, sour, candy (sweet tarts?). Smooth, sweet and sour. Update: I’ve had this several times since and I actually really like it a lot. Ones of my favorites from this brewery and I thought it deserved a bump. I hope to properly rate this eventually.

From the tap. Good carbonation from the deep red ale. Nice foam emits a sour fruit aroma. Sour malts leave a fun finish that is more pleasant than I expected. Good beer.
