Bottled@SBWF2013. Quite close to black colour, small head. Aroma is fruity, ripe dark fruits, some raisins, mild vanilla and sour wooden notes. Flavour is very similar with also some spiciness as well as mild floral and liquoricelike notes to it.

DialSquare (4301) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2013
750ml bottle from Kingdom Liquor in Brandon. Near black pour with a thin than head. Aroma is a little acidic, chocolate, wood, dark roasted malt. Tastes are wine, oak, cocoa, caramel, light smoke, grapes. Finishes a little tinny, little bitter, little dry. Moderately sour and well balanced - albeit a strange mix of flavors. Interesting overall though.

bubblehouse (1343) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Pours very dark with big foamy head. Smell more sour than it actually tastes. Really nice coffe and chocolate notes with just the right amount of sour berry coming through.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle shared by Dan. Aroma is tart elderberry, roasted coffee, and a tangy chocolate. Pours black with a chunky white head and lingering film. Tastes tangy and roasty at the same time. The result is almost a sour meat taste like a pimento loaf or italien ham. Nice tart and roast linger. Very enjoyable sour stout.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle from Proof. Black pour with a creamy brown head. Aroma is thick chocolate, roasted malts, dessert wine, oak, lactic acid and sourdough yeast. Chocolate on the tip of the tongue followed by Pinot Noir oak barrel, lactic acid, lemon peels and sourdough. Smooth carbonation with a tart finish and a touch of alcohol. Not too shabby.

Aroma is very dry, yeasty and really earthy. Appearance is the deepest of browns with a tan head. Taste is very much like a sour red wine. The blend of yeasts is considerably less tart than what I was expecting.

Bottle shared thanks to kantrauch! Batch #1 mar2013; pours a translucent black brown with thin ring of brown lacy head. Aroma of chocolate, dark fruit and roast. Taste is funk up front, wine middle, and a sweet chocolate finish. Well yeah, a Flemish red mixed with stout, but awesome!

Sample at SBWF. Sour and dark malty smell. Similar taste. Very complex and interesting to drink. I like the mix of yeast and dark malts.
