3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle at home. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small, fine beige head. The aroma and flavor have mild roast, dusty dark chocolate, tart oak, some yeast, tart black cherries, hints of coffee. This is an interesting brew for sure, definitely not something to grab if you want a traditional stout, but another solid beer from Jolly Pumpkin.

Some roast and lots of the house bretta strain. Pours black with ok head and lacing. Finishes bitter and sour. Roast tempers the yeast a little, but this is still an odd ball beer. Tap at Bru.

On tap. Comes almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of chocolate, fruit, and malt. Taste is tart fruit, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and spice. Confusing, but good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Dark brown/black with finger thick beige head.
Aroma: Acetic, vinous, sour cherry, woody.
Taste: Medium/high sourness with low bitterness and sweetness.
Palate: Thick rough grainy texture, light body, average carbonation, abrupt dry, sour, vinous finish.
Comments: Very good. Reminds me a bit of a Flanders sour ale, not quite sure where the stout comes in. I may have drunk this one too young? Blend 1 Bottled 01-10-2013.

Had with Bruce at three philosophers. Pours black with a thin quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is roast and metallic. Flavor is slightly sour roasty ad some chocolate. Eight oz of this would be nice. Half a bottle is too much. Overall good. But metallic and sourness was a bit too much.

Nose if sour. Thanks Dan. Infected. Tart in the nose. Tart in the taste. Ok. But the roast and sour clash. Lots of wine and vinegar.

Color and aroma show a sour porter but definitely not a stout. Rau to drink bit does not seem to age well. Bought over a year ago.

Bottle thanks to dan. Pours black in head. Aroma of muted chocolate and wine. Taste is wine like, a bit tart, smooth, lite. Not bad.
