Deep brown foggy brown. This one is all over the place, with funk, fruit, chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is as complex, with a lively mouthfeel and toasted oak finish.

Stone Sour Fest, San Diego 2009.
Dark blackish color, which is intriguing from the start. Nowhere to go from there though as it held mostly a fruit based sour. It was good enough though.

Sampled at the 2009 Stone Sour Festival. Valley brew wins my vote for best brewery for the day. My least favorite Valley brew on this day was still really good. Sour, sweetness, and the mango was really interesting in the flavors it gave. Strawberry, lime, kiwi. Awesome.
