UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 This is fucking awful. Its a weirdly clear stout. Just fucking trash. A sour stout? Fuck you chefs in black @ pepsican---you should lose your commission on this garbage.

Bottle shared by Ferris, not sure if I can thank you for this one buddy! Aroma..WTF coffee, and an Easton aluminium stick that Getzkey used when he played for the Kings. Taste is sour up front which isnít bad, but the aftertaste is like chewing a peace of juicy fruit with the foil still on. Not very good.

From a 750ml green bottle, yellow wax. Pretty sure the label said "Breakfast Ale", not stout. Deep brown pour, noisy beige head on top that dies quickly. Smells like a cheap brown ale, metallic notes, caramel. Taste is lemony and metallic, come chocolate malt and cola notes. The aftertaste is like sucking on a penny. Why the fuck would someone brew this.

Bottle - Briny, metallic and soured malts. Deep brown with a bubbly beige head. Not great, but not as horrible as expected. Soured malts and briny.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Bottle at weekly tasting. Requested by Nick. Pours brown tan head. Nose/taste of sour coffee, sour coffee grounds. Not much else. Some cocoa. Lighter medium body. Not as awful as the ratings but certainly not good.

Bottle. Brown ugly pour. Sour and stout aromas, highly infected and wrong. Flavors are slightly roasted and awful off tones.

A "special" tapping at the Great Nebraska Beer Festival. Aroma has almost no coffee with some moderate nut and toast character and a hint of roast. Medium light acetic character with some toffee and caramel. Some raisin and dried fruit esters. Pours a murky brown with a small, thin tan head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges. It looked like muddy water after a rain storm. Flavor is like the aroma but with a more pronounced acidic character. Light roast and chocolate notes but much more nuts, caramel, toffee and toasted bread than chocolate and roast. Some dried fruit notes of cherries, berries and raisins. Iím still not sure where the coffee is in this beer. Medium light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied and watery but thick at the same time with low carbonation. Medium astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall another really bad beer from CIB. I have no idea why this was listed as a Special tapping in the program. There was no coffee character and it tasted rather infected. Really weird beer.

(750ml bottle) cloudy dark brown. Fine tan bubbles. Nose of Belgian candi sugar and trash. Taste of tomato juice, god it tastes awful.

Smells like squirting bleach into a muddy compost heap. Tomatoes, acetone, toxic waste. Truly one of the most vile aromas I've encountered. Tastes like an infected Bruery beer, so not totally shitty. Bit of roastyness underneath, somehow. Thanks Zach!

This beer is either very confused or its a joke that nobody else is in on...it clearly has nothing to do with being a stout (or a good beer for that matter). Smells of a bad funk from off banana peppers...tastes maybe not quite as bad as the aroma, which of course means, it still tastes really bad. At least I can now say with some certainty, iíve tried the worst stout of my life....

Hells yes! Big fuck you to Homer321 for stowing this away in a perfectly legitimate shipment from Johnís Grocery. Stored carefully in the attic under a pile of old blankets and rat traps waiting for the perfect opportunity to spring it on my unsuspecting "friends." Lets start with the bottle waxing - ok the string was a cool touch but what the fuck? Have you ever heard of practice? Now the pour. Being a breakfast stout and all I was totally unsurprised when the beer poured a clear reddish chestnut in color, with a small tan head that dissipated fairly quickly leaving some lacing. A beautiful color really, until you double take on the fact that this is a freaking stout. Minus 0.2. The aroma can best be described as weird; kind of an industrial cleaner wood alcohol thing, a bit of armpits, pepperoncini, cardboard, cigarette butts put out in coffee cups. Flavor is light sweet, definite funky bathroomy tartness, light bitterness. Industrial cleaner, airplane glue, cardboard and very very stale, like perhaps mopped off the floor of an all-night diner, coffee. Light body, low carbonation. Not the worst smelling beer ever (fart beer wins that hands down), but it might be the worst tasting. Score another victory for the Chefs! My primary concern at this moment is that I dumped all but about 4 ounces of this down the drain this afternoon. I sincerely hope that I havenít inadvertently spawned a C.H.U.D.-like species of mutated sewer monsters.
