3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: pours mahogany blackish brown with faint tan ring. Nose let's you know that woody sourness is on its way. Some chocolate, oak, lime, Brett, subtle roast on the nose. More dark fruit sourness, lime, oak on the palate. Tongue puckering sourness and long finish. Stands up to Russian Rivers finest. Well done

750 ml to oversized snifter. Looks decent; black with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes good! I don’t pick up any stout notes, but the base seems to provide some balance to what would otherwise be an overly sour beer. Sour and cherries is what sticks out. Mouthfeel is puckeringly good. I like this beer!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
dark mahogany. Not much aroma of note. Little bit of roast flavor, but mostly sour all on the backend. It’s a very well made beer, and I think it’ll be really interesting in a year or so when the roast and chocolate flavors come through more. Now, it’s almost like the two flavor characters are fighting, and then the sour wins in the end.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very dark - can’t tell if it’s brown or black - with a creamy tan head. The aroma is pretty sour - but there’s some underlying dark fruit. Med body. Foamy carb. Ok the sour isn’t mouth destroying - but it’s definitely sour. Not a bretty thing - just sort of woody sour. I’m not sure I’d identify this as a stout. It’s quite mouth bending. A surge of something resembling lactose comes forth. Then it’s gone. There’s smooth burnt malt, but it’s not on the main menu. Definitely some oaky astringency. This stands up to the best Cascade sours IMHO.

Sour grape nose. First sip, tart lime. Nice carbonation, sour grapes, some minor acidity. Warming palate. Balance. Black color, coke float head. Palate dominator.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from original release. Pours a black/dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is nice and tart of dark cherries, balsamic vinegar and funk, but also toasted malt, dark fruits and chocolate. Flavor follows the nose really nice sourness with the dark cherry and balsamic vinegar, with some of the funk notes, nice stout components of dark fruits, toasted malt and chocolate, with some oak notes too. The body is medium with a creamy and dry mouth feel. Overall a great Sour Stout, super interesting!
