750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 8/19/2013. Black with a hint of transparency at the edges. Nice khaki head. Good retention. Fruity, dark roast on the nose. Some chocolate. Iím not familiar with boysenberry, so I canít specify the fruit aroma. Acidic aroma. Tastes much more fruity. Roasty coffee. Dark chocolate. Bright tart fruits, but I still donít know if itís legitimate boysenberry. A bit chalky in the finish. Tart more than sour. Flavorful, medium body, well carbonated. Tough call on this one. The flavors all seem to be in perfect balance with each other, but I just donít know if I want some of these flavors together.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle Shared: Pours a very deep brown hue with a small tan and purple frothy head and spotty lace. Tart berries, chocolate, coffee, red wine skin, faint oak and char, and some earthy minerally elements come to play. The mouth feel is soft and a tad oily, moderate tannic dryness. All in all an enjoyable brew.

hopscotch (10645) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 Bottle.... This beer rocks!Ö Dark brown pour with no head. The nose is a collage of brownies, fudge and boysenberries. Medium to full-bodied with pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is certainly roasty but moreso sour, vinous and bursting-at-the-seams with an assortment of dark berries. Finishes crisp and tart. An interesting, world class effort provided by newcigarz!

Pours a black brown with a modest mocha head. Smell is tart, fruity, roast. Taste was intensely sour... Like sweet tarts sour. Sweeter than I expected. Very fruity. Not much chocolate or any other imperial stout characteristics, but still a solid beer.

Thanks to Kyle for sharing this good beer. A sour black beer. Yeast in the aroma as well as roasted malt. Flavor is moderately sour and I can taste the wine, but not the berries specifically.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 4, 2014
750 ml bottle. A pitch black beer, with a large, frothy, creamy, lacing, mostly lasting brown head. The aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), lightly to moderately yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of grapes, red wine, wood, raspberry/blackberry, vanilla, tobacco, hint of alcohol. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, pretty long finish with light to moderate bitterness, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Really never had anything like this. Maybe a bit of a mess, but damn, it works! The stout character is mainly noticeable in the nose and aftertaste. Really a good amount of fruits and wine barrel, with an almost tobaccoish finish. Despite its alcoholicity, the booze is well hidden and you always beg for another sip. I repeat, it may appear confusional to someone, but itís great IMHO.

Bottle shared by Tooch4321...thanks Adam! - Pours purple-black with a thin light tan head. Nose is dry and roasty with a layer of sweetness and a little funky booze. Taste is sour dark ashy malt, a little vinegar, and a little berry. Thin and not well-carbonated. This one was a bit of a dud.

Bottle. Pours dark with no head. Aroma is sour fruit. Flavor is apparently boysenberries which I couldnít positively identify. Really a nice beer, good thick palate for a sour.
