Served in a snifter Appearance- like the name says, dark dawn. This one is dark as night. Very little to none head or lacing. Aroma- at first you do pick up some stout characteristics, roasted malt, chocolate, and some of the oak from the barrel aging. Ounce you get your nose closer and smell you pick up the tart, dark fruit, sour notes. Taste - I picked up some semi sweet malt, dark fruits like raisins, plums, black berries, and raspberries, pretty much giving you that tartness. Almost like a Belgium Quad or double that got some bacteria in it making it sour. Mouthfeel- medium bodied with hardly any carbonation. Overall - i thought it was great. Reminded me of Monks Cafe Sour Red ale. I would definitly recommend as long as you know your not getting a stout.

and again: thank you very much for the generosity of the bartender of Sörmanufaktúra/Sörspecialista! His gesture is very much appreciated :-) deep dark brown, almost black colour, moderate sized beige head;aroma of sour fruits, roasted coffee, earthy notes and hints of alcohol; taste of intensive sourness with roasted coffee notes; like a mixture of a cup of coffee and a geuze with the dominance of the latter one...interesting

Pours a dark brown with a thin beige head. Has an aroma of sour berries, chocolate, and some roast. Flavor is also sour fruit and some bitterness. Pretty good, though I’m still getting a taste for sour beers.

Dark red brown pour tan head. Aroma of cola, leather, acid, wood, dark caramel. Tastes apple cider vinegar, coco, lactic. Creamy in a way unlike the creaminess usually found in stouts.

Sour aroma. Dark with small light brown cap. Sour, lambic sourness, but with nice, balanced sourness with stouty notes. Good stout for hot weather.

Bottle from Willy thanks man! Dark black stout looking pour with lots of mocha coloured looking head. Aroma, hmmm, sour funk, roasted malts and some light sweetness. Taste, medium mouthfeel, sour black wine gums, a bit of roasted malts, with a souring coffee like finish. I must say this is a really interesting beer, Isome stout, more sour, but overall really well blended. Yum.

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.
