rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle shared up at Hunaphu Day. Black pour with a small brown head. Aroma of buttermilk, lactic acid, roasted malts, faint cocoa and oak. Similar in flavor with more of the chocolate/roast notes pulling forward and a tart, lactic finish. Solid beer.

Lubiere (10485) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
A deep dark stout with a thin mocha head. In aroma, bitter chocolate malt with coffee grind, herbaceous character, floral hops, nice. In mouth, a nice mix of sour tartness over bitter chocolate, lactic acid, wood extract, nice. Bottle at Spinrsx tasting.

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2014
Bottle... darkguardian’s & biggsbowler’s West Palm Beach Birthday Bash!... Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Fantastic retention. Olfactory standouts are walnuts and fudge. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. The flavor offers a slightly odd, but very nice marriage of fudge and lactic acidity. Finishes chocolaty, roasty and tart. Bottle courtesy of Rosebud butternuts!

Huhzubendah (2668) - Washington DC, USA - APR 18, 2014
Served in Jester King stemware (thanks Michael). The beer is a near black shade with an oily beige head. The aroma is quite interesting. Dark fruits, plum, brett, oak, sour cherry, rye bread. Intense sour with an overly ripe sour cherry flavor. Lactic mouthfeel with a puckering finish. Roast and stout character is overwhelmed by the wild ale component. That said, I don’t mind the imbalance that much. Intriguing and interesting. A nice sipper.

TXBadger (1567) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2014
The beer is about 2 years old, Batch 1. It has that JK funkiness, barnyard to it, with the backbone of Black Metal. It is a decent job on a sour stout, there are still notes of cocoa present, but I would have liked more.

Experiment_Ale (1044) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2014
At my place with Taylor, Matt, and Jake. Batch 1, like 2 years old. Pour is dark dark brown black, small circle of head. Aroma is huge sour, like boxer revenge style sour, marshmallow malts. Taste is sour tart, coco nibs, tangy, lots of nutty notes. Not bad.

ajnepple (2554) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2014
Small pour from a bottle at Hops & Pie. Black appearance with a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruits, light chocolate, earthy and oak notes. Similar flavor, dark, malty, fruity, light tart and lightly sour. Medium body, a little flat.

Thorpe429 (5011) - , Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2014
Served in a Jester King goblet. Dark fruits and a bit too heavy on the roast. Underlying acidity and mild earth.

Sour, malt, chocolate, coffee bean. Well balanced. Not a great style but decent
