Very dark brown color. White head with fine bubbles, stays well. It is what it says it is. Sourness is evident, but not too strong and well balanced with other malty aromas. Reminds of very dark chocolate (over 80% of cocoa) that also has some sourness to it.

Bottle from Urban Sprawl. Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of licorice and malt. Flavour is sweet malt, warm sweet booze, jam. Overall quite boozy sweet, not sour. NordicV (2332) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2017
Mörkbrun, lätt disig öl med ett mindre skum. Doft och smak av kakao malt, mörka bär, syrliga bär och vinösa toner. För mig går detta inte riktigt ihop i denna öl. Ibland tar stouten överhanden ibland surheten. kajser27 (1785) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 27, 2016
Dark brown to black colored, small creamy tan head. Aroma is of dark chocolate, light coffee and strong dark fruit and berries with medium tartness. Taste is dark chocolate and toast some light coffee notes, some roasted notes, medium sourness and again strong dark berries with a tart dry finish, some vinous notes. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, creamy. Not a combination that works for me...

Bottle courtesy of minutemat in Shrewsbury, thanks! Clear deep brown color, tan head. Aroma of malted milk balls, pine. Taste is very sweet ovaltine and sourdough brownies. Interesting.

Shared bottle at the 5th Oct 2015 Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting (with Gene as our guest). Dark bodied with a tan head. I found it rather sweet a supposedly sour Stout. Ovaltine maltiness screamed out at me in both the aroma and taste. I found it interesting and I am now struggling to score it from my notes and memory because of it’s strange nose and flavours. minutemat (5395) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2015
330ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Travlr edition, Oct 15. Brought by me, thanks to Omhper. Pours deep brown. Thick, sweet shop / lactose aroma that I could’ve happily sniffed for a while more. Taste is similarly sweet and slick, bready with berries, caramel and milky chocolate flavours. A touch muddled and didn’t get much in the way of sour notes unfortunately but an interesting beer and a fine end to the share. mmahut (1859) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours in black body with creamy high tan head. Aroma is pickled cornichons at front with light dark fruits notes and pretty light sour in the background. When the beer warms you can pick a lot of blueberry jam, light strawberries. Complex but pretty balanced to the sweet jam side. Taste has high blueberry jam sweetness, caramel, light roastiness with roasty bitterness. There is an interesting merge between the bitternes and sweetness. Light acidity in the after taste, followed, of course, by the jam sweetness :) Body is full, soft medium carbonation. Timvim (114) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle @ home 20140830. Black with a small tan head. Aroma of raisins, dark sugars, plums, prunes, some alcohol. Taste is fruity with molasses, coffee and chocolate. Some burned notes. Slightly sour and very fruity. stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Dessa blandningar gör i stort sett allt utom att gå från klarhet till klarhet, och den här märkliga saken var inget undantag. Ölen var komplex med toner av syra, choklad och bär, kroppen var skön och balansen likaså.
