bomber from 2012 summer secret santa. 5 for appearance; midnight black with dark beige head. aroma was not what I expected from a stout - sour with lactose. taste = wtf!? who put sour in a stout. I thought it was infected until I read other reviews. this was a bad idea - a sour stout; warn me next time
In a beer market that’s as overwhelmingly diverse as the one we have now these so-called Belgian-style Stout are becoming increasingly common. All of them are weird but quite a lot of them are surprisingly good. Jolly Pumpkin’s Madrugada Obscura might well be one of the oddest and best ones. It pours black with a yeasty, fruity, and malty nose. Flavor is a strange blend of elements, yet it’s somehow cohesive. There’s earthy and fruity sourness in the forms of musty wood and tart dark berries. There’s bitterness coming from hops and charred malt. The sour and spicy elements are contained by the chocolaty malt. Despite having lots of acidic sour flavor, the feel is smooth. Each sip gives you something new to taste and it’s not always easy for you to know what you’re tasting. This brew is complex, bizarre, and brilliant. SG111 (1760) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2017
Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is tart sour notes, Bretty almost (not vinegar), bit of chocolate, roasted malt. Flavor is very tart, some cherry, sweet fruit, roasted malt. Little bitter finish. Very sour heavy but prominent "Stout" presence at least by Jolly Pumpkin standards. Arcanor (421) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2017
750ml bottle, unreadable date. Pour pitch black with a medium dense tan foam that reduce to cloud and ring. Aroma of lactic roasted malt, bitter coffee beans and alcohol. Taste is tart and spicy, I was expecting that from Jolly Pumpkin. Very complex, broiled brown sugar, black fruits, molasse and coffee crust. Medium body and high carbonation for the style. Dry and oily. Long roasted and bitter finish Korcz (3310) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 9, 2017

Dark Brown almost black with beige creamy head. Nose is acidous with hints of malts. Taste is almost bitter and lots of acid with an almost flat palate. Short and not that enjoyable.
