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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(bottle - 750 ml) Dark brown pour with a fizzy brown head. Huge sour and tart aroma with some light chocolate and roasted malts under that. Flavor is gloriously sour, almost lip smackingly so. Tartness blends into a mild chocolate finish and leaves a tart funk on the palate. Quite delicious.

Black pour with a small head tart fruits aroma reminds me of something I cant place. Avg pal. Huge fruit forward flavor very tart surprising.. roasty stout character more in the finish. Quite good.

On tap at the Bruery. A freaking sour stout! I tasted lots of sour oak flavors. Very enjoyable for 7.5%. My new favorite style of beer!

Bottle, shared by Eric - thanks! Poured dark brown, minimal head. Bit tart, vinegar and lightly funky aroma. No real "stout" characteristics. Taste reminds me of the Duchesse, but less sweet and with a nice, roasty finish. Moderately sweet, acetic flavor. Medium body, slick texture. Overall: by name I expected an infected stout, but this is more of a nice, sweetish dark sour with a slightly roasty finish. Enjoyed this quite a bit.
