Batch 1070
Bottled 4/27/12

A-Once I cracked the cap this beer was a slow motion gusher and poured a full glass of light coco tan foam. Once the foam settled down there was a hazy brown body with a strong carbonation and the head still didn't quit, pushing over the lip of the glass but still holding its shape.

S- The sour note and coffee bean aroma has some dark roasted malt notes behind it and a unique spice blend in the finish.

T- The coffee flavor had some nice dry espresso bean flavors with a dry spice note to follow. There is a mellow dark but bright tartness in the finish that is followed by an after tasted of squash and fennel.

M- The medium light mouthfeel has a tight scrubbing fizz in the finish but no astringency or alcohol heat.

O- This is a well balanced beer with coffee supporting sour flavors and some unique spices worked in there aswell. It was fun to drink but hard to figure out what I was actually drinking.

Served In: Flute Glass
