3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Was afraid they only served this on Fridays, but lo and behold there it was on a Saturday afternoon. I suppose that makes up for them not actually having Dark Age tapped at 3pm on the Thursday before. Oh well. Surprisingly dark, nearly black pour with a solid little beige head. Nose of cherry skins, oak, vanilla, cocoa, and other dark malt notes. Taste shows all those dark malts balanced nicely with acetic notes and cherries. Really good, but I donít know... almost too drinkable? Complex wasnít necessarily a word Iíd use to describe it, but I canít complain about it either. I could drink a ton of it.

Bottle shared at my house a while back. Poured a Tootsie Roll brown under a light beige head. Aroma is sour, tart dark cherry, lemon, strong acidity. Flavor is the same with some dark toast. Medium body with light carbonation.

Brownish black color with a white head. Aroma is freshly picked cherries, bourbon, and chocolate. The flavor is slightly sour but also malty. Chocolate covered cherries and bourbon. None of the flavors overdone. Well balanced and tasty.

Great sampler from the Funkatorium. 6oz pours? 7oz pours? The darkest of the group. Barrel leads. Big cherry, but that is still second behind the barreling. Very nice! 15.3

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a dark reddish color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of ground cherry with some tart notes is pretty enticing. Taste is also a mix of ground cherry notes with some tart and sour notes and light oak notes are also perceptible. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Great beer with good balance between all the flavours.

09-JUL-2016, draft @Himmeriget, with Sonni.
Black with a lasting tan head.
Aroma is cherry and faint Bourbon.
Taste the same with red wine, Wood, and a slight roast. But the roast is never too much as in most Black sours I have tried. Tart with a long tart finish. Very nice.
