King_Alex_II (1140) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Black color (non-transparent even with an powerful electric torchlight) with brown foam layer. Sour nose. Sour taste with a light roasty touch. A little weird, but quite pleasant. Dry sour aftertaste.

anstei (1012) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle. More of a Berliner Weisse than a stout, very sour, but with those hints of roasty stout throughout. A mindfuck, and a good one at that. Very, very impressive.

SinH4 (2415) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2016
Vintage 2013 bottle shared with anstei and King_Alex_II, courtesy of anstei, many thanks! Beautiful black color with big fine-bubbled tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, fresh sour feeling already. Taste is berry tartness, like a Berliner Weisse, with some dark malts there. Very foamy carbonation. Sourer than the Geuze we had before was. Incredible that this is only 8 ABV. Quite a paradox and amazing!

Tap, Jolly Pumpkin, Ann Arbor, MI. Deep black, tan head. Raisin and juniper aroma. Sweet with a mild resin and dark chocolate flavour, black cherry and cocoa on the finish.

dfinney23 (2619) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2016
When is a stout not just a stout? When it’s a sour! Dark and acidic, roasty and sour. Certainly not the norm but it works for me.

DwarfeD (2540) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2016
75cl bottle shared with friends. Pitch black with a small tan head. Full body with low carbonation. Well balanced sour, bitter and sweet tones. Coffee, roasted malts, vinegar, dark chocolate, dark cherries and spices. Great sour stout.

Cavie (4234) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2016
On tap at Kool Keg. Black color, opaque with a tan head. Sour aroma, nail polish remover and bubble gum. Super sour flavor, puckering and offensive. Tart, funk, light vinegar. Intensely sour finish.

Manslow (1019) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Butelka 0,75l? Kolor ciemny, nieprzejrzysty, piana lekka ale trochę zostaje na szkle, Aromat owocowy susz śliwkowy, trochę czekolady. W smaku dużo owoców jakby stout owocowy? Moc alkoholu wyczuwalna.

Evolutionary (461) - Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle from Aaron. Black pour with thin tan head. Smoky nose and almost sour or wine like taste and feel. Smooth and lighter taste with alcohol bite again like a wine. Really good but very different - be ready for a sour stout mix. Some dark cherry fullness
