2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head that shrinks. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, grainy, and cocoa. Flavour is coffee, moderately sour, roasted malt, on the acidic side for sure, and cocoa. With the sourness/acidity I find this a bit off putting.

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. Couldn’t get the sourness out of my mouth. I don’t care for this, maybe it’s 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, it’s 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…
