From the tap. Good carbonation from the deep red ale. Nice foam emits a sour fruit aroma. Sour malts leave a fun finish that is more pleasant than I expected. Good beer.

Draught @ Smoke & Barrel, Washington.
Pours flat black. Pure citrus nose.
Yeasty hard candy sour flavour. On the edge, but not over it.
A half will suffice.

Alla spina. Birra di difficile classificazione. Si presente come un a stout per poi essere passata in botte e prendere le sembianze di una sour ale. Aroma di limone, acqua stagna, tostato, al palato dapprima si vede la sua parte stout con malto tostato in evidenza per poi lasciare spazio ad aromi tipici da sour ale quale un discreto acetico, acido, muffa e legno.

An amazingly good tart beer. I had it from a tap, and it was simply amazing. Even my sour hating wife loved it.

Nice tart aroma, could be a little more prominent though. Taste is just how I like it, very sour. So tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Clear dark pour with small light beige head. Aroma of vinegar, lemon and cherries. Taste of lemon, vinegar, sour cherries, and very faint chocolate sweetness on the finish. Huge mouth puckering tartness, not my favorite style but quality beer for this style is very evident.

Aroma of molasses, marmalade, lemon juice and chocolate. Pours hazy raisin brown. Taste is chocolate covered prunes, oak, tart citrus, pineapple, and grapes. Very tart and intense. Wood finish. Nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draft at Land O Lakes World of Beer. Pours pitch black with a very thin foamed head. Zero lacing on the glass until you give it a gentle swirl and then you get a brief glistening shimmer that cascades down the glass with a few sparse, sudsy remnants. Aroma has vinegar and sour cherry notes with the most subtle hint of roasted malt. Flavor is beautifully tart up front with some of the roasty richness in the very tail end of the finish. Excellent sour stout!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours a deep reddish brown, it’s got a small head that doesn’t leave much lacing on the glass.
The aroma is blackberries, some light balsamic vinegar, it’s lightly funky with some roastiness.... but not much roastiness.
The flavor is fairly dry and very tart, nicely sour and lemony with some nice sour cherry & blackberry notes. It’s got what I would say is an acceptable level of balsamic flavor, so it’s fairly low but very much noticeable. The whole "stoutiness" is very subdued, the fight between dryness, sourness, and roastiness can be unpleasant in these types of beers but things work fairly harmoniously in this one.
