joeneugs (3246) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 21, 2013
On tap at Bottles in El Sobrante. It pours a very dark red, almost black color with an off white head. The aroma is mouthwatering with cherries, raspberries and good funk. Not much malt character to speak of. The flavor is tart black cherries, hard candy with hints of dark malt and red wine vinegar. A little spice near the finish. It has a pretty light body which in this kind of beer leaves it a bit lifeless, but other than that it has great flavor and a nice level of puckering sourness without being harsh. Well done.
