On tap. Black with a creamy brown head. Sweet chocolate and tart fruit aroma. Bright medium bodied palate. Tastes of chocolate, chalky roasted grain, coffee, syrup, and a tart fruit finish.

baraciisch (3119) - California, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Dark black in color, thinnish tan head... Aroma of sour funk, dirty socks... Flavor is bizarre, wild yeast and mild malt notes... Sour water, shocking that its this dark with such thin malts... Not too impressive

Tanned leather. Big sour. Very intresting beer. Very unique. Came to try this beer and I wasnt dissapointed. English personality. The stout is way in the background. If you like sour stuff you should like this.

mansquito (6067) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Trestle Inn, Philadelphia tap ($6): Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma is cherry, chocolate, vinegar, and red wine. Taste has a whole bunch of sourness, especially at the front and then there is some chocolate and malt toward the back. For a sour stout, this was pretty good.

The aroma is sour, wet cardboard. The appearance is deep brown, deep tan head. The flavor is sour wine, chcolate, roast. The finish is a gain a sour red wine, roasted malt. Medium to medium/thick in body. Interesting experiment, but not great.

Beerman6686 (6588) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2012
This poured a very dark red/brown color with a very small beige head. Aroma was lots and lots of port, light buttery notes, and some roast in there too. A bit cheesy and funky, hard to tell if its more from the wine, or the actual souring, with very little stout qualities left. Interesting, but I was hoping for more.

Sampler at the tasting room as Sour Stout. Roasty aroma with a hint of vanilla and sour. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and a slight sourness. Not overly sour, but a nice compliment to the stout.

mcberko (16598) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours a dark reddish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of sour barrels taking over the roasted notes of the stout, though its feintly recognizable as being a stout-based. Flavour of sour notes, masking the roasted and chocolate notes. Not much else to describe it with. Solid rendition but it doesnt strike me as a stout or a warranted thing to do to a stout. Good for what it is though.

On tap at Capones, Norristown. Man, these names! Anyways, found this to be far more tart than a typical Belgian stout and I guess seeing RBs style designation that makes good sense. Nice tart cherry skins, more acetic than a Bruin. Good stuff.
