Sour aroma, then black tea. Horror sour taste. Sharp and acidic. Must be off. Black tea tells me this was a good beer once.

On tap at Meet The Brewer, Cellar Door Drinks, Four Oaks. THIS IS NOT RETIRED!!! Pours red-brown with small head. Aroma of dark fruits, toasted malts, caramel and toffee. Taste of initial dark fruits, not too heavy though, then some toasty malts then a lovely smoky finish. Rate it!
