On tap at the brewpub. It pours a hazy dark brown to black body and a small, dense, light beige head. Lightly vinegar-ish aroma with lots of dried fruits. Some notes of chocolate and coffee. It’s full bodied and quite tart, pleasantly carbonated. Dried fruits, figs and prunes, roasted notes and a tart lemony touch. Lasting finish. Well worth a revisit this one. 130807 brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 12, 2013

"Dark brown, small head. Wonderfully balanced aroma of lemons, light funk, wine, roasted barley. Well carbonated, giving it an additional sour bite. Flavor is quite sour though the porter comes through nicely as well. This is yet another world class sour beer from Russian River. Great brew!"
