COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark ale is fermented with a blend of two rustic Belgian yeast strains which gives the beer an up front farmhouse tartness followed by hints of coffee, dark chocolate, and black cherries. We aged the beer for over three months to give the yeast time to work its magic and let the flavors meld together. Listen to that lunatic in your head, dust off that vinyl, pour the beer into a glass and sip your way into a happy, chilled out groove.

16 oz. can from Honkeybra, my summer secret Santa! It pours a very thick black color with a disappearing tan head. The aroma is nice with roasted, toasty chocolate malts and a slight dark berry presence. Doesn’t smell sour. The flavor is roasted malt with some very nice sweet/tart berries. The sweet tarts come in strong in the finish. I really like this one. Berry tartness with no acid or nail polish remover. Nice dark chocolaty backbone. Very nice beer!

Strange one. On the pour you can smell soy sauce but it kind of morphs into this aroma of sour coffee and a metallic, wet-earth smell. Flavor is pretty interesting. Tart and sour at the front that turns into a day-old-coffee flavor. A little too forward with the sour, kind of unbalances it. Glad to try it, but can’t see drinking it often, even if it was regularly available.

16 oz. can shared by Tmoney99. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have some roasted malt from the base beer, dark chocolate, tart black cherries with a hint of spicy yeast character. Decent for a soured stout.

Pours unclear dark coffee with a decent beige head, so awesome out of a can. The aroma and flavor both bring light tart notes on a single Belgian stout type of body. It is a little creamy, very smooth with no alcohol at all. Some green apple notes are in there as well but ends a little early.

Tap. Black with minimal head. Mildly sour with substantial malt. Chocolate and cherry elements. Feels lighter than a stout, but looks the part. Odd, but not bad

16oz can .. . weird aroma, creepy grain .. . farmhouse is correct .. . tart and a bit burnt .. . strange but strangely enjoyable .. . . just when I start to think people aren’t so stupid, I remember people buy tuna sandwiches out of vending machines.

Sample at Brewery Vivant on 3/29/13. Black pour with a thin beige head. Aroma of malt, licorice, metal and vinegar. Malty and sour flavor with some chocolate before a roasty and sour finish.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Can: Poured a deep pitch-black color ale with a medium size dark brown foamy head with good retention. Aroma of roasted malt with tart cherry notes, some tart notes and some black chocolate. Taste is a complex and rich mix of cherry, roasted malt deep black chocolate notes with light lingering residuals sugar notes with plenty of fruits notes. Body is full with an oily texture and medium carbonation with no apparent alcohol. This is a very complex mix which is not as tart as I was expecting. I could see myself drinking this once in awhile but just too powerful for regular consumption.
