Bottle. Black body with a grey brown head. Whiskey and wine barrel is apparent in the nose with the promise of something tart. Mild sour flavor with a black berry note. Acidity gets a bit buteric at the end.

750 mL caged and corked bottle at home. Pours clear black with a medium, fizzy tan head, quickly and mostly dissipating with spare lacing. Aroma is pedio and lacto tartness, plums, light roast and chocolate malt notes, cherries, light oak and nutmeg. Flavor is tart pedio and lacto with plums and cherries, light, non-bittered malt, light earthy hops and bitterness, sweet oak and a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Pours black with a tan head. Tart, funk, roasted malt and yeast aroma. Chocolate, roasted malt, tart, funk, oak and wine flavors. Medium body and carbonation. Roasted malt, tart and oak finish. Weird but good.

Thisis12ptfont (1172) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Massive aromas of plum, dark fruits, black cherries, blackberries, grapes, raisins, rice vinegar, oak, acidity, rye whiskey and vinous wine grapes. Appears dark black on a thin brown foam rim. Taste moderate sourness upfront with dark fruits, plums, raisins, prune juice, wine grapes, rice vinegar, chocolate, very chalky cocoa, toffee, dark malts and very dry, slightly roasty whiskey finish with no booze. Overall, I saw that this was a dark sour ale (as I love sour ales) aged in whiskey barrels (as I love whiskey/bourbon aged beers) and also wine barrels so I was expecting a big treat. The aroma was immense but sadly the beer falls very flat in my opinion. All the notes are very hinted undertones. Big disappointment, B- rating.

750 mL bottle opened at a tasting. Pours black with a thin tan head. Big sour dark fruit aroma. Sour dark fruit flavor on top of a light chocolate like body. Tart flavor lingers forever. Grape and black cherry finish. Awesome beer, and unique for sure. Not too many black belgian sours out there. Great stuff.
