stantheman (956) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2013
On tap at St Augustines on The Drive in Vancouver. Very dark, almost black, with a moderate tan head. Ill be brief, I promise. Though quite drinkable, the flavours are very unsubtle. Barrel aged it may be, but it tastes like nothing more than a straightforward mashup of sour and stout. Okay, but Id have preferred more stout and less sour.

GothGargoyle (2508) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
Deep black with a good sized tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is raisins, brown sugar, dried fruits. Creamy mouthfeel, reasonably thin bodied, mildly sour on the palate. Taste is dried apples, raisins, malt vinegar, wood. Lacking a little in stout characteristics.

coreyc1221 (314) - Truckee, California, USA - JUN 24, 2013
The version I got was the Mendonesia Sour Stout on tap at Mellow Fellow in Truckee, CA. Smells tart and yeast blended very well together. Almost black color with a short tan head. Sweeeeet tart taste at first then mellow but still sour citrus. Damn good. Lotta different things going on at the same time.
