3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark and a bit thin with a whitish head. The aroma is acidic and citrusy but there is little contribution from the malts. Flavor is similar. Overwhelmingly lemon sour with some strong pucker. Not terribly acidic. Pretty one-dimensional.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, thin beige head, sudsy, dies quickly, sparce lacing.   Tart nose, very woody.   Not getting much roastiness or stout like characteristics.   Seriously, this is a sour stout?   Really comes across as a standard type Sour Ale.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, very dry on the backside.   Had you given this to me blind, I would have no clue that its a sour stout.   As is its simply a tart/sour type of brew.   Not terribly fruity, nothing really stands out other than it being sour.   While I enjoy sour ales, this just seems too simple.   Good, but average overall.   Not stout enough in my opinion.

SMpled at 4 Hands cellar night. This poured quite dark and intetesting looking. A nose of vinegar and fruit. I expected this to be very tart but it is not. It is complex fruit which includes raisins. This is tasty stuff. A p,eadant surprise.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, picked up @ Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a deep brown/black appearance with a bubbly, brown head. Tart, cherry/berry, fairly oaky, rich tannin aroma. Juicy cran-raspberry, vanilla, leather, oak, very tart berry, mildly roasty chocolate flavor with a slightly vinous, tangy berry finish. Comes off really as sour grape/berry juice to me. Not one of my favorites but not bad either.

Bottle shared with marcus. Color is dark with an off kinda purple in the light, no head. Aroma is pure sour. Taste is tart right away and finishes with a roasted malt and oak flavor. Great beer

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Dark beer with brown hues when held against the light. Very small beige head. I am trying hard to get into sour beers, but this one just doesn’t do it for me. Rotten citrus peel nose with all the sour funk notes that make my entire head pucker when I smell it. Nasty rotten fruit tastes with moldy hay and composted grapefruit tinds. This is just hard to get down.

Pours dark red with tiny beige head. Some particles. Aroma: strange aroma that reminds me off... tuna(?!), along with slight roasted malt. Fortunately, it tastes otherwise, surprisingly sour (with some roasted). Dry finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Devils Den for Sourfest, 11 bucks for a 12 oz. Pour is pitch black, light if any beige head. Lacing wasn’t present on this one. Softly carb’d, medium bodied. Aromas are insanely sour and acidic with berries, currants, roasted malts, wood, and a faint amount of chocolate. Taste is very tart and funky with some berries, grapes and cherry flavors up front, woody earth in the middle, and a light roasty cocoa finish. Barn’d the f out big time with a puckery close.

Draft. Pretty much black, small beige edge head. Aroma of slightly sour cocoa and subtle coffee. Taste is prominent yet soft sour plums, dates, port wine. Delicious.
