3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(750ml bottle). Pours cloudy brown with tan head. Some carbonation and awesome lacing. Aroma of sour cherries, some caramel, sugar. Taste is sour with some sweetness. Getting a little roastyness from the porter component and the sweetness from the dubbel. Medium to full bodied with a creamy texture. Finish is slightly roasty. Pretty unique beer and a success.

Bottle drank with the boys. Pours a dark brown/black color with a medium brown head. A sour vinous nose with chocolates. The flavor is indeed like a sour porter; yeasty, chocolates, sour, fruity and smooth. Roasted malts. Good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark beer with reddish hues when held up to the light. Creamy beige head. Threatening Brett funk nose with faint cherry and dark candi sugar. Flavors of dark cherry, dark funk, and sweet candi sugar. Almost chocolate in the finish. I’m starting to like Brett, and this well balanced beer uses Brett in a nice way.

bottle at Fort Wayne tasting - Pours dark amber and smells of cherries, Belgian yeast, and deep dark malt. The flavor is very sweet with plenty of cherries and roasted malt. Surprisingly I really didn’t pick up on the brett. I liked this one though some will find it a little too sweet.
