1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours Very Dark Brown, darn tan head. Nose is instant coffee, chocolate, roast. Flavour is stale instant coffee, lemon seed. The latter becomes more apparent the more you drink it. Couldnít get the sourness out of my mouth. I donít care for this, maybe itís intentional maybe not; just rating what I bought.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Discounted bottle from store aroma, pours a really deep brown/ black with an enormous tan head. Tons of floating yeasties/protein particles swirling around. Aromas of bottle from shelf, some smooth chocolate, roast. Not much coffe detected, but this one is probably well over a year old by now. Still, itís pretty damn good. Finishes on a light grape drank note, some apple juice offered. I like it.

Bottle courtesy of Travlr, many thanks! Was expecting a straightforward stout, but the entire beer was sour. Not sure if it was supposed to be, but if it was, then an extremely interesting sour stout…

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 11.2oz bottle. Pours black with small barely 1 finger head into tulip. Nose is coffee, cocao, vanilla, big cream notes. Mouthfeel is thin, slightly watery, creamy, round. Taste is vanilla, big milky cream notes, coffee beans, chocolate syrup, latte, caramel notes. Finish is bitter chocolate and coffee, milky, artificial creamer, a little odd but not unpleasant. Not bad but not great.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very dark brown pour with a small, very fast fading cream colored head. Aroma has a slight acidic nose, lots of brown malt, light chocolate, a touch of coffee late. Flavor starts off with a very pungent stale tobacco note, a light sourness too it with it transitioning to a modest (at best) espresso flavoring. The espresso is honestly hidden behind the semi-strong acid sourness. Body is what you would expect with a modest, very fine carbonation. Brew has a light dryness in it at the tail end. Overall an okay beer but the espresso comes out a bit muddled by the other flavors. Kinda disappointing.

Not very sour. The aroma is there but the flavor is dominated by the espresso. Which is good, not overpowering and just a hint of sour tart towards the end.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium beige head. The aroma is brett, ripe fruit, chocolate and coffee. Sour bitter coffee flavor. Somewhat tart. Chocolate and a hint of roasted malt. Light vanilla. I'm not very good at these sour stouts but this had an interesting edge.
