10oz tulip on tap at Ei8ht Ball. This is currently listed as fruit beer here on Ratebeer, but itís definitely a sour... Pours a black color with a ring of bubbly khaki head. Leaves decent bits of lace. Nice vinous dark fruit dark cherry aroma, good chocolate to it. Kind of oaky. Pretty on point, already one of the more impressive Trois Dames beers Iíve had so far. Nice moderate-plus sour taste, very mild with the vinegar, nearly a total lack of it... Just good clean solid belgian sourness. Lighter sweet, mild bitterness. Medium to bigger body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Light slick texture, then a bit dry in the finish taste-wise. Overall, an awesome dark sour. Great mix of chocolate and cherry. Touch of vanilla. Really enjoyable. Glad I waited until I could get a full pour. Like fiulijn said, itís not really so much like a "chocolate cake", not nearly as decadent nor rich. Thereís a hint of chocolate to it, but itís just a touch. Thatís probably a good thing, though. Itís a very nice dark sour as it is.

Easily the most tart "stout" Iíve ever tried! The chocolate is a very subtle undertone. Had a very good pour & a sour aroma. Quite different!

Bottle from La Cave ŗ BiŤres, Yverdon-les-Bains
Black color with generous compact head. Smooth beer, with elegant body, pronounced sourness, and a light bread and lemon touch. I donít think of it as a "chocolate cherry cake", but just as an excellent, dynamic example of sour dark ale.

Capped 750 from Healthy Spirits. Pours dark ruddy brown with a tan head. Aroma is cheery over a dark sourishness. Med + body. Flavor is tart cherry, chocolate, dark malt, and arguably some hop. Finishes rather tart cherry.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a chocolate and cherry aroma. There is a treacle and cherry flavor over a roasted malt base with a mildly sour finish.

Chocolate and cherry smell, just like "schwarzwšlder kirschtorte". The taste is much more sour that expected. Very sour indeed :-)
