Bottle courtesy of Shigadeyo. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Smells of rich roasted malt, chocolate, some signature sourness. Tastes wild with some tea like hints and a rich chocolatey texture that gives way to some nice house character found in many of his creations. Another great beer from a great brewer!

750 ml. thanks to drewbeerme. First of all great label, i love all of their labels but particularly this one. Pours black in color with a thin beige head. Sour fruit aroma hoovering on top of a coffee base. Sour flavors strike me first cherries and fruit balanced out with dark chocolate and roast. The sourness is a bit odd but its balanced well and I am really enjoying it.

Bottle. Thanks to moejuck and punkrkr27 for sending me this one. Dark brown body with nice head. Aroma is a really nice roasted malt with a small sour feel, wood. Flavor is of sweet malt with a funky sour taste, tart. A well balanced sugary flavor. Perfect mouthfeel - this really awakened my tastebuds. As it warmed the barrel again really started to make an appearance. As it warmed more it becomes very vinious and takes on a more wine like state. A nice take on the style.

Inky black with slight tan head. Aroma of coffee and berries. Bitter roasted taste with some hops and sour finish. This beer lingers nicely.

Pours a midnight black with a good size tan head. Has hints of dark chocolate, coffee, and sour fruits. You can really taste the sour fruits in the finishing of this brew.

Bottle shared by sliffy. Black pour with a light tan head. Aroma of light oak, roasted malt, coffee. THe flavor still held some of the roasted malt character, and coffee, but there was some sour oakiness that pounded its way through along with a bit of funk. Medium body roasty/funky throughout with a dry sour finish. a bit bizzare, but a neat variation to be sure. Though I think I like my sours a bit less roasty.

Body is deep and dark with some modest viscosity and a velvety tan head. Lush chocolatey nose with raisin and caramel notes plus touches of vanilla and marshmallow. Flavor is tart and vinous with nice roast and chocolate malt along with pleasant wood characters. Makes me think of chocolate covered strawberries with espresso. Proudly carries Jolly Pumpkins open fermentation signatures. Good stuff.

Aroma is full on coffe with some sourness.Pours a pitch black color with a nice khaki head.The flavor was strange.It was sour like a flemish sour that was chased by a Impy stout with lots of coffee.This was a strange one.Finish was sour backed by some coffee.

750ml 2007 vintage. thanks to ogglethorp for this beauty. pours black with off white head. nose is of bakers chocolate, sour, roasty, vanilla, and oak. flavor is pretty sour, with soft roast and coffee and chocolate notes, but those are rather faint. this is mainly sour and oaky. carbination was very prickly at first but time and many swirls turned this into a smooth brew. i was concerned this would turn into a sour chocolate milk and coffee sorta thing but i actually think they pulled off being more sour with hints of coffee and chocolate quite well. i wouldnt pick this up if i was in the mood for a stout but this is really unique impression of a belgian sour stout. again JP continues to please me.

Bottle, poured a dark, dark brown with a thick tan head. Nice roasty aromas, very stouty but you do get a whiff of an underlying "funk" I would expect nothing less from JP. Excellent roasted flavor, complex with chocolate, coffee, burnt malts and then on the backend you get a subtle sourness on the sides of the tongue. The sourness comes forth more as the beer warms. Great mouthfeel, nice and creamy with a nice sourish burnt finish. Very unique beer that I really enjoyed.
