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.

Bottle courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours hazy black with a creamy dark mocha head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sour and malty with roasted malts, lemon juice, dark grapes, yoghurt, hay, charred wood and hints of coffee and bitter chocolate. Taste is very sour with roasted malts, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, lemon zest, hay, barnyard, dark roast coffee, unflavoured yoghurt, cocoa powder and hay. Mouthfeel is dry, very tart, mouth puckering and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, lemon juice, lemon zest, hay, charred wood and hints of barnyard. Tasty roasted thirst-quencher.

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.

Had a glass on tap at the mikkeller bar in SF. Wow, this is crazy. Super sour and funky, doesn’t have many stout flavors except a chocolate sweetness on the finish. Delicious.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 At Rockwells, Quite puckery sour. Took me quite a few sips to get used to it. Thin wine like beer and the roasted malt didn’t compete. Serving: Tap
