Travlr (24784) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2012

mcberko (17840) - 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 it’s 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 doesn’t strike me as a stout or a warranted thing to do to a stout. Good for what it is though.

Tasted on Sour Sunday at The Jupiter. Pours dark black with beige bubbles. Nose is light sour mash. Med+ body. Flavor is sour, like sour malt, finishing with dark malty stout, but sour is ever present. Wild!

slowrunner77 (12044) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"A bit of an odd duck. Definitely well balanced between sour.funky and smooth chocolatey stout. The combo was interesting, but didn’t quite work for me as the best ones have (thinking Tart of Darkness or J pumpkin). Molasses sweetness, roasted malts, lemony pucker and a hint o cheese. A work in progress, perhaps, that i’d get again."

Draft at Capone’s. Pours hazy dark brownish black with 1-finger off-khaki head. Nose is tart dark fruit, blackberry, port, woody malt. Tastes tart with dark malt and big blackberry, port, and oaky woody notes. Finishes complex and delicious. This one rocks.
