750ml bottle. Didn’t have the gusher issues others had. Deep black, tan head. Tons of oak, dark fruit, slight sour nose. Flavor is woody with roasted malt, more dark fruit, and a sour finish. I bet this ages nicely.

Enjoyed on tap at Jester King taproom in Austin, TX, which may be my favorite new brewery. Appearance is pitch black with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of sour cherries, stinky cheese, dark chocolate, and espresso. Taste is tart up front and finishes lightly sweet, sourness definitely goes away nicely, one of the best sours I've had, happy to have had it at this great place.

(Draught) jet black with dark tan head around the edge and atop the beer. Nose of sweet coffee, funk, Brett, yeast and local terroir, very light roast, touch acidic and sour in the nose, complex leafy greens too. Taste is way more sour than the nose, medium to light roast, fairly funky, Brett, the roastiness in a sour beer really works here. Natural carbonation, medium body, sweet roasty linger with some sour notes too.

Bottle, 2013 vintage. Libertine March 2014 bottle share. Pours a deep black/brown with no head. Aroma is light coffee, chocolate and malt. No sourness. Taste is at first more of a malty/toffee brown ale but then picks up a mild sourness. Slight coffee on the finish.

RickTheRick (565) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
La bière est tellement noire que la mousse se sauve rapidement, comme si elle était effrayée. Des notes vineuses apparaissent au nez, et sont jumelées à des arômes enivrant de cerises nappées de chocolat noir. Cette combinaison se retrouve en bouche et je ne m’en plains aucunement, c’est divinement bon. L’acidité est assez prenante, rendant l’atteinte de la satiété assez ardue; j’en aurais bu une caisse!

Bottle via Jess. Batch #4, 2013. Pours a reddish brown/black, little to no head. Nose fruity, raspberries, hint of lacto, little bit of tannins. Body lively, with tannic juicy notes, really nice.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate sour lemon, light chocolate, and faint roast. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with a small tan head that quickly fades to a very thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a very quick dose of light chocolate. The finish quickly turns to moderate sour lemon, light roast, and coffee. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, it’s decent and the roast and coffee are pretty light, but I just don’t think those flavors work in a sour.

Bottle: Black as hell with a light-tan head that fades quickly to a collar around the edges. Aroma has a slightly roasted & dark malt background with heavy notes of sour apple skins, moderately astringent tannins, faint white wine, cherry, lemon, & lacto. Taste is more sour than expected. Tart lacto yeast, lemon flesh, cherry, & some tart redcurrant. Mild red grape vinousness with a hint of wet oak. Roast is lighter but comes back towards the finish with a hint of char & dark chocolate. Mild acetic & vinegar character grows with warmth. Not bad, but I’ve had more enjoyable "sour stouts" for sure,
