Bottle… Tour of Power Sour Hour 2011 … This beer rocks!… Pours dark brown with a small, beige head. Good retention. The earthy, fruity bouquet provides notes of leather, dark chocolate and dark cherries. Medium-bodied with a raspy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is very tart and offers cocoa and fruity dark cherries. Finishes tangy and modestly bitter Thanks goes out to Maltzilla for sharing this rarity! dimenhetfield (2554) - , Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle shared by Maltzilla at Tower of Sour Power. I’m gonna follow suit with Darkguardian and Maltzilla in saying that this beer was just incredible. Stole the show that night. It was hard to believe that a beer so dark could hold so much sour quality. The cherry was most certainly there as was the stout presence. It was a perfect mixture of the two. 50belair (3700) - Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Another huge tip of the cap to maltzilla for sharing this gem at the TOSPH. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Cola, sour cherry, and chocolate aromas. Insanely delicious Chocolate Cherry Stout with sour cherry, chocolate, and caramel notes. Diego, your the man!!!!!!!! Maltzilla (38) - Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Hands down, one of my favorite sours of all time. Pours a dark, creamy black with a think, tan head. The aroma is chocolate malt, cherries, and some sweet sourness. The flavor is very much on the same page: roasty malt right up front, followed by dark chocolate covered black cherry, tartness and mild acidity. Just wish they had decided to make this a yearly thing darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Only my second perfect score. And that includes the thousands of beers I have had but haven’t rated. Major, major thanks to the insanely generous Diego for opening this ridiculous beer. Pours an amazing near black with a frothy tan head with reddish highlights. Crazy head, gorgeous beer. Nose is unexpected and amazing. Cola, chocolate, nuts, lactic sourness, and chewy cherry. Flavor is so amazingly balance with the stout flavors sitting right up at the front of the palate, the body is thick and full and the moderately sour cherry finish comes in at the end while the nutty chocolate finish of the stout lingers. This is just an amazing beer, Didn’t know if I would ever give another 5, but here we are.

Bottle generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Pours a purplish brown. Aroma has some chocolate notes with cherry syrup. Slightly acetic background to the nose. Flavor is mild; soft notes of chocolate and cherry syrup. Syrupy sweet with chocolate malt in the finish. Surprisingly (and disappointingly) distant and mild. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2011
