MASSIVE BEER REVIEWS: Pentagram Dark Ale by Surly Brewing Company

Beer: Pentagram Brewery: Surly Brewing Company Style: Wild Ale/Sour Age: 2017 ABV: 6.66% Described as a “100 percent Brettanomyces dark beer,” this funky, fruity, malty sour brew was fermented in stainless steel, aged in used red wine barrels, and conjured some dark forces in the most metal way possible.
