750ml bottle @ Matt’s. Pours a cloudy and murky dark brown with a thin tan head. Nose is sour toward the lacto sense with an oaky note. Flavour is a nice upfront sourness, some tangy acetic character that isn’t quite balsamic, and some dark fruits. Quite enjoyable. beerplace (1691) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2017
750ml bottle at Matt’s. Pours a very dark brown with tan head. Aroma is balsamic, woody, some cherries. Taste is similar. Moderate to high sourness. Quite good, but I would prefer less acidity. mcberko (17823) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2017
750mL bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of leather upfront, with tart dark fruits, chocolate and tobacco. Flavour is pleasant, with a nice mix of leather, tart dark fruits and tobacco upfront, and then the vinegary and acidic character comes in ever so slowly, eventually dominating the palate, lingering on and on. A little harsh, but it’s pleasant enough.
