On tap at the brewpub. Pours a black colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is big tart cherries, some chocolate, oak, funky and sour Brett, a hint of bourbon, and some roast. As this warms, the tartness remains big, but the chocolate and roast really come out nicely. Flavor is similar. Lots of tart cherries and funk up front with a nice oak and chocolate in the middle. A nice bourbon presence with a light roast towards the end as this finishes dry with lots of tart cherries, oak, and a nice dark chocolate. Again, the chocolate and roasts really come out nicely as this warms. Lengthy aftertaste with a light to moderate bitterness and a bit of a sour pucker lingers. Medium-light body and a slightly lively, light tickle of carbonation. Overall, an awesome sour barrel aged impy. Tons of tart cherries with a nice funk, wood, light bourbon, and solid chocolate and roast notes that really come out nicely as this warms. Very impressed with this one.

Sample on tap at the brewpub. Black color, minimal brown head. Bits of lace. Suprisingly sour - I didnít realize this would have wild yeast in it going in, but itís a nice and tart flavor. Light crisp carbonation, with an acidic light bite., and some warmth. Long sour / tart roasty aftertaste, interesting. Fruity, and roasty aroma, notes of chocolate.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Sample at Jackie Oís as part of Ohio Brew Week. The beer pours black with a bit of ruby around the edges and a thin light beige head that diminishes quickly. Minimal lacing noted. The aroma consists of tart cherries and roasted malt. Full-bodied with a moderately sour cherry character and notes of chocolate malt and a bit of oak. The finish is fruity with a tart cherry aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.

Growler brought back by Dogbrick. Pours pitch black with a medium tan head. Sour wild yeast and cherry aroma with roast and a bit of chocolate. Acidic sour flavor with lots of tart cherry. Roast and chocolate creep in at the finish. More sour than the raisin version, so depending what mood youíre in, your choice may vary.

Growler, thanks Kan. Pours black with off white head. Aroma of Brett brux, smoke, cherry pits, and raisins. Flavors of raisin, cherry pits, cinnamon and chocolate, nice whiskey and port barrel finish. Sticky feel. Iím still not sure what to make of sour stouts but this is a good version of one.

Poured on draft. Pretty much an inky black with a dark brown head of foam. Aroma is primarily boozy bourbon with an accentuation on sour cherries and chocolate.The wild yeast plays nicely off the cherries in this giving it an interesting feel. The bourbon and cherries are the predominant flavors in the taste but they give way to a wonderful tart finish. This would make for a pretty cool dessert if it were made. Bourbon glazed sour cherries drizzled with melted chocolate. This one is probably my favorite of the first two Dark Robustics.
