this beer is amazing. a sour stout pours black fizzy dark head. smells sour tastes sour. and it isn’t thick. i know it’s a winter beer but it should be a summer stout. it’s like a black girl with a sexy attitude problem. who likes to slap you int he face

"definitely has that JP house character, but this keg has some extra age and conditioning on it, making it even more funky & sour than usual. interesting interplay with the darker, dark fruity malts for sure. not something I could drink a ton of, but quite good in smaller doses."

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.
