3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black (very dark brown) with low beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, fruits. Taste is of fruits, sourness, slight acid, some roasted malt, sugar. Alcohol (not well hidden). Palate: Medium body. Overall: "ok". Not a "style" I enjoy that much. Too much alcohol. Decent.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is a mix of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is similar with some watery chocolate and roasted malt coming through strongly. There is also a light amount of dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. If this wasn’t listed as a sour I would have had no idea it was supposed to be sour, because I got no sour notes in the flavor or aroma.

3.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled May 15th. Very little aroma. Smells like sour chocolate wine if that makes sense. Taste of roast and chocolate up front. In the transition to a near lambic level sourness there is a vinious quality that emerges. The sour ending has a lot of complexity as you keep drinking. This includes funky cheese and vinegar. Sour and bitter dark chocolate aftertaste lingers. Overall I think the sour beasties take over this beer a bit too much, bit still a unique pleasurable brew.

Way too much carb, dark fruits, tasty roast underneath, but it's hard to appreciate. Even with this open for >2hrs! Decent.

Bottle. Pours dark with a half-inch tan head. Roasty aroma with sour cherry/berry notes. Taste is sour cherry and roasted grains - yum. The first sour imperial stout I’ve ever had, and it makes me want more. Great stuff!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Une bière moyennement sûre qui se cache derrière une stout vivement torréfiée et rôtie. Des notes de petits fruits et de fûmée se faufilent également pour mener vers une buvabilité acceptable.
