From a 750 into my Michelob chalice. First time I’ve used this chalice and it won’t be the last. Bottle is the 2012 vintage so it’s about a year in the bottle. Pours a porterish brown. Couple inches, tops, of white frothy head and zero lacing. LOTS of fizz in this one. Light mouthfeel. Like a porter. Very dry too Nose is very tart and consists mainly of grapes and chalk. Taste is also overwhelmingly sour. Very mild depth of flavor. Good amount of red wine, chalk, green grapes, sweet tarts, lemon, lime and a bunch of other sour things thrown in. I did like this one. Very sour but easy to drink with a light mouthfeel. From my buzz I got going, seems to be bigger than the 5.7% on the bottle. Worth a try but I’m not buying again. Bruery stuff just aint worth the coin.

On tap at Ashley's. pours an almost black red. Subtle sour aroma. Pretty incredible. Hard to explain, more sour than stout but has that nice stout base.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap and dispensed to a small snifter at Warren’s Ale House in Wheaton, IL., displaying an opaque, black/brown hue, with a decent layer of tan head froth that reduced to a thin ring, and left a few strands of lacing. The nose was dark fruit, tartness, and vinous characteristics. The flavor was full blown sourness, dryness, and near acridity. No possibility to detect any roastiness in either phase, yet I kept on drinking. Sensed a hint of vanilla toward the finish. More or less a one hit wonder for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black pour with a medium but disappearing head, and a very interesting aroma of sour cherries and roasted malt. Flavor is surprisingly sour with hints of tart cherries and lemon with some roasted flavor notes almost completely hidden away. Finish is sour, and it lingers quite a while. Overall I think this is decent but not interesting, and I was looking for something interesting in this. Not one I need to try again.
