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 (2080) - 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 (4086) - 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 (766) - 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 (427) - 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

Vignale (2854) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2015
Flaska från demolenbeershop 2012 vintage. Drucken med ölföreningen. En syrlig och ganska torr och stram stout. En väldigt speciell smakbild som får mig att tänka på Japan med mycket umamismaker. Sjögräs typ sushiblad, soja, en fin liten nötighet som får mig att tänka på sesamfrös, kaffesump. Det finns öl man uppskattar för att de är så goda andra mer för att de sticker ut. Madrugaga lyckas på båda punkter men kanske mest på den sista.

Ktwse (3188) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2015
Pours black with two fingers of tan head. Aroma of citrus and chocolate, light apples and brett. Taste is rich tart, fruit and berries, with mellow fruit sweet finish. Light to medium body with soft carbonation.

FireCorner (13) - - DEC 9, 2015
75cl bottle. Batch 981, bottled 02-07-2012. Dark as a stout but flavor like a sour/lambic??, reminiscent of cherries, lemon or green apple. Curious beer to be tasted at least once in life.

cpetrone84 (1797) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Pour is black with a tight tan head. Nose is fairly ashy and has a dry leathery brett, dark berry fruitiness and some citrusy hop. Flavor is more sour cherry and citrus in back, leathery brett, lightly dusty, moderately sour, light roasty malt, high carb, lighter body, quite dry, lingering bitterness.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Wonderful combo dark n sour. Pours black with tan head and some dark red if put to the light. Aroma of citrus acidic acid and toasty malts. Flavor of the same with cherry notes and some sour raspberry character. Roasts are throughout and perfect Y balanced excellent.
