3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours like a cola with a slight ruby tint, above average carbonation, and a small quick tan head.
smell is sour, woody, a touch of dark fruit, and a wee bit of spice.
taste is thin and sticky, tart of wild yeast, cocoa, and dark fruit. ends tart and a little dry.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sour cherry and oak nose. Clear mahogany, thick tan head. Sour cherry flavor, but unusually oaky. Finishes with a faint whisper of soot. The wood really comes through nicely in this one, and with no extraneous spirits, just oak. I like that. The unbarreled liquid is fairly simple though, not a lot of nuance. I was really hoping for something with a greater roasted malt presence.

Bottle with Chris and Jay. Pours black with thin tan head. Very tart for a stout. Not enough roasted malt or other stout flavors. Good sour.

Dear lord this is sour. Too sour. And I love my sours. Let this sit for a while so you can taste the rest of it.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
First batch. Black in color, little head. Aroma is red fruit and sour. Taste is super sour, vinegar, lemony. Thin body with fizzy carbonation. This beer is too sour, not good enough flavor, not my thing.

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.
