Dark-Brown color. Funky, rustic aromas and flavors of sour wild berries and apples, barnyard hay, pickled okra and root vegetables, and band-aid and paraffin with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, sour medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long finish with notes of cherry vinaigrette, nutskin, and earth finish. A distinctly sour and funky porter for the adventurous to enjoy with cheeses.
