FROTHINGSLOSH (8291) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2014
From the 12/2013 3R6P gathering +++ Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was bourbon, coconut and vanilla. The flavor was tart, sour and lactic with notes of dark fruits, red wine, coconut, chocolate and vanilla. Long tar t and sour finish with lingering red wine and coconut. Moderately full bodied. Interesting. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle from Chris a few months back, shared @ The Bruery. Brown pour with a khaki head. Aroma is really...off. Nuts, green apple, balsamic vinegar, and olives. Coffee, wood, roast, and chocolate. Some caramel sweetness on the palate. Lots of nuts, balsamic vinegar, and olives. Old chocolate, green apple, cardboard, roast, and lots of wood. Really fizzy and carbonic.

Bottle. Interesting and tasty. Hints of stout and Granny Smith aftertaste. Can do it but this aged an extra year which may have cut the tart sharpness.

Poured dark with lighter brown head. Chocolate and cream aroma. Taste has a dour beer tart to it, combined with a nice choc stout taste.
The sourness carries through to the aftertaste without being overpowering.

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with tan speckles. Nose is fudge, elderberry and musty basement with a touch of coffee bean. Starts with a sharp tang but not quite sour which suits me fine. Rich, medium to full body, a bit chalky. Taste is chocolate, bourbon, tart blackberry, molasses and sweeter blueberry. This one surprised me; could almost pass for a fruit beer. Tasty.

750 from State Line. Poured hazy blackish brown with tan head that dissipated quickly. Nose was cherries, funky yeasty malt. Taste of roasty dark malt with tart cherry, cacao, and funky yeasty hoppy finishers. This one had a 75% rate of "I’d buy this if I saw it again", which is exceptional. hopdog (13222) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2013
750ml bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Chocolate, cherries, dark fruits, vanilla, woody, and some lighter funkiness. Chocolate covered cherries with a lighter fruity tart finish. Braudog (6900) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle, caged and corked. Pours dark and brooding, yet liquid and easy, a thin head. Intriguing aroma, hinting at both sourness and rich chocolate. The flavor delivers, an interesting stout base, with a definite sweet/sour dominating tilt. Some may not care for it, but I love it.

750ml C&C bottle from Spirits Brick. Poured an okay looking solid black body under a huge frothy beige head that shrinks down to a 1/4 inch of beige foam that never goes away. Aroma is very nice, lightly sour like a rotting lemon or an old wet band aid, chocolate pudding underneath with roastiness, cola, soy sauce, black olives, cherry juice. Medium to fuller bodied with average carbonation and a milky mouthfeel that leaves a lingering burnt taste. Flavor not as sour as the aroma, initial blast is some sourness like dark cherry juice along with wet burnt toast, chocolate on the finish along with old black olives, dark berries and charcoal, slight tobacco. Solid beer and I will pick up another to stash away for a few years to see what happens.
