3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours a dark reddish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of sour barrels taking over the roasted notes of the stout, though it’s feintly recognizable as being a stout-based. Flavour of sour notes, masking the roasted and chocolate notes. Not much else to describe it with. Solid rendition but it doesn’t strike me as a stout or a warranted thing to do to a stout. Good for what it is though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"A bit of an odd duck. Definitely well balanced between sour.funky and smooth chocolatey stout. The combo was interesting, but didn’t quite work for me as the best ones have (thinking Tart of Darkness or J pumpkin). Molasses sweetness, roasted malts, lemony pucker and a hint o cheese. A work in progress, perhaps, that i’d get again."

Draft. Dark mahogony beer with a tan head. Tart aroma. Tart/light sour flavor with dark fruits and light chocolate. Medium bodied. Tart/light sourness lingers with dark fruits and malt. Easier drinking than I thought an 8% sour stout would be.
