RickTheRick (949) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
La bire est tellement noire que la mousse se sauve rapidement, comme si elle tait effraye. Des notes vineuses apparaissent au nez, et sont jumeles des armes enivrant de cerises nappes de chocolat noir. Cette combinaison se retrouve en bouche et je ne men plains aucunement, cest divinement bon. Lacidit est assez prenante, rendant latteinte de la satit assez ardue; jen aurais bu une caisse!

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate sour lemon, light chocolate, and faint roast. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with a small tan head that quickly fades to a very thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a very quick dose of light chocolate. The finish quickly turns to moderate sour lemon, light roast, and coffee. Its medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, its decent and the roast and coffee are pretty light, but I just dont think those flavors work in a sour.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle: Black as hell with a light-tan head that fades quickly to a collar around the edges. Aroma has a slightly roasted & dark malt background with heavy notes of sour apple skins, moderately astringent tannins, faint white wine, cherry, lemon, & lacto. Taste is more sour than expected. Tart lacto yeast, lemon flesh, cherry, & some tart redcurrant. Mild red grape vinousness with a hint of wet oak. Roast is lighter but comes back towards the finish with a hint of char & dark chocolate. Mild acetic & vinegar character grows with warmth. Not bad, but Ive had more enjoyable "sour stouts" for sure,

Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Pours black with a medium thick tan head that diminishes gradually to a dense film. patchy lacing. Aroma of funky fruit, malt and oak. Medium body with flavors of dark fruits, chocolate malt and oak. The finish is fruity up front with an oaky vanilla aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

A touch on the mouth-puckering side without letting enough of the other character elements shine through, at least for me. Lots of citrus. Pours dark black. Bottle pour at Churchkeys 5th anniversary.
