I had this beer on tap at Beachwood BBQ’s sour beer fest.
This soured version of Death and Taxes (a schwarzbier) is interesting. The souriness hits you up front but it definitely finishes w/ the roastiness of a schwarzbier. Unique & tasty. AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Wet leather like influence dominates the nose and flavor. Some balsamic vinegar influence. bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2009
on Tap at Liars Club Alpine. Black beeer with a wak vinegar nose. flavor was strong sour with some purple fruit and some smookiness. stragne and not that enjoyable, but different. on a night featuring RR Tor 20 and others this wasn’t worth finishing. fordest (2469) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Sampled at the Stone Sour Fest. Nose was a little weak. Flavor was still sour. But not an excellent sour like some that we had there. Roasted malts were very interesting in combo with the sour flavors. DaSilky1 (2608) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 22, 2008
looked black to me and had but a halo of suds atop. Very roasty nose with interesting lactic sour backing. Flavors were sour, roasty and actually it all seemed to combine interesting and nice.

Sampled at the Second Anual Stone Sour Festival on 7/20/2008. A pretty average sour ale. A little vinegar in the finish. Overall just ok. Snojerk321 (2984) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Tap @ Stone Sour Fest 2008. Pours a dark rust color with a small off white head. Nose of toasted oak, sweet and sour plums and currants. Flavor was very woody and faintly sour. wetherel (1899) - Cupertino, California, USA - JUL 21, 2008
On tap at Stone’s Sour Fest 2008. Black. Roasty burnt bitter flavor. My least favorite of the fest. Didn’t finish sample. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Tap @ 2nd Annual Stone sour fest. Pours black with a tan ring. Nose was smoky and roasty and malty and strange for a sour. Taste is sweet and tart and malty and strange but also appealing. DenverLogan (1301) - North Bend, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Dark mohogany; small head. Subtle tart aroma. Lovely, crazy and fun concoction at the Liar’s Club...with some notes of deep, dark wood, others of a highly concentrated Duchesse de Bourgogne, some vinegar, prunes, unsweetened chocolate, dark roasted wood, wild esters. Quite unique.
