3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very well made beer, one of the best Bellwoods has been involved in. Black with lace at the bottom. Cherry aroma. Brux and Lamb and Lactob. and pedioccus and magnum and Flemish yeast. Chocolate in finish. Carbonation understated, a plus. A Flemish without palate erasing. Worth seeking out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-07-28. Black body, modest foamy tan head. 3++ Aroma is moderately lactic and lightly roasty. 7+ Flavour is pleasantly sour, light roasty undertones throughout. 7++ Average bodied palate, good carbonation throughout. Tasty but I find it very difficult to find a sour stout that manages a balance between sourness and roast that suits my preferences. I expect that this will be well received but it is not enitrely to my own taste. On tap at Bellwoods, Toronto

Draught at brewpub. Said 8.8% on the board. Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a small diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma is sour and wood-ey along with fruit, light spice and some roasted malt in the back. Flavour is quite fruity along with a good amount of wood, spices, alcohol, light tartness and roasted malt. Medium bodied. Really good stuff.

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.
