3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black pour with a medium but disappearing head, and a very interesting aroma of sour cherries and roasted malt. Flavor is surprisingly sour with hints of tart cherries and lemon with some roasted flavor notes almost completely hidden away. Finish is sour, and it lingers quite a while. Overall I think this is decent but not interesting, and I was looking for something interesting in this. Not one I need to try again.

Tap at Pony Bar 10th ave. Pours cola black with no head or lacing. Nose is raspberries and sour candy. Notes of sour berries. Taste was light swet and pretty big sour. Light body with lively carbonation with a nice acidic bite to the finish.

Dark black pour... Aroma is tart, notes of roasted malts... Flavor is an explosion of tart, dark berries, malts... Tastes a lot thinner then you would expect, acidity overpowers it... Nice, but might like the JP madrugada better

Tasted at bottle share in Boca Raton, FL. Thanks Derek! Small snifter. Poured a very dark, nearly black with thin light head that disappeared quickly. The aroma was interesting as it was a a stout with a funky yeast to make it a sour. Chocolate, cocoa, dark fruits and funk. The taste was similar with the tartness not being overwhelming but very prevalent. Full body, smooth mouth. A little carbonation. Weird but I loved it.

Poured from tap. Black with thin tan head that settles quickly. Nose nis a deep, sweet candied sour with a bit roasty malt. Even palate, medium bodied, with sweet fruit tartness but very smooth. Some malt on the back. Finish is a bit light and overall the beer is pretty acidic.

Pours black. Unfortunately, while the tartness is quite good, it's very overpowering. For sour stouts I like a little more balance and nuance. Here I can't taste the base stout at all. C+

Draft at Stag’s Head. Pours dark cloudy brownish black with a medium-sized tan head. Aromas of funky fruit and wet wood. Taste is super tart, woody, oakey, slightly roasty, citric acid, citrus juice, tart plum skins and cherry skins. The tartness is deifnitely more dominant that the roasted notes but there is a really nice baalnced between these two flavor profiles. This beer immediately reminded me of more tart version of Jolly Pumpkin Madrugada Obscura. Overall; a lovely, puckering level of tartness that lingers on the palate. Really, really tasty.
