Only my second perfect score. And that includes the thousands of beers I have had but haven’t rated. Major, major thanks to the insanely generous Diego for opening this ridiculous beer. Pours an amazing near black with a frothy tan head with reddish highlights. Crazy head, gorgeous beer. Nose is unexpected and amazing. Cola, chocolate, nuts, lactic sourness, and chewy cherry. Flavor is so amazingly balance with the stout flavors sitting right up at the front of the palate, the body is thick and full and the moderately sour cherry finish comes in at the end while the nutty chocolate finish of the stout lingers. This is just an amazing beer, Didn’t know if I would ever give another 5, but here we are.

italarican (1470) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Bottle generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Pours a purplish brown. Aroma has some chocolate notes with cherry syrup. Slightly acetic background to the nose. Flavor is mild; soft notes of chocolate and cherry syrup. Syrupy sweet with chocolate malt in the finish. Surprisingly (and disappointingly) distant and mild.

25.4 oz bottle. My rating #2100 and my 100th Sour. Dark brown with a lively tan head that settles to a haze. Nose is oak, chocolate, black cherry and mild sour funk. Creamy medium body with a tang; unusually lush mouthfeel for a sour. Taste is bittersweet chocolate and sour black cherry. Light touches of coffee, oak and bourbon. No signs of age; interesting stuff for sure.

Huge thanks to Miver for sharing this bottle at RBSG. Pours out a slightly reddish hued dark brown color with a small head. Aroma is of some light tartness, cherry, and chocolate. Taste is very complex and well balanced. Tart/sweet cherries, chocolate, sour notes, funk. Lots going on in here. This was pretty impressive.

750mL at RBSG 2011 in Philly. The pour is a very deep ruby looking black in the glass with a red, Martian head arising. Looks like black cherry stout. Fizzy retention. Nose is blueberry and fruit acidity along with some spicy impeding acetic character. Body has tart raspberry and richer chocolate along with some obvious roast and mild coffee remind you this is a stout. Big berry skins and tannic skins add to the mix to give this quite a light body. Softly tart. Riveting carbonation detracts. Very nice.
