Dark opaque mahogany, ample tan head. Dark cherry, berries, leather, some coffee, some dark chocolate. Somewhat sweet, though significantly dryer than the average imperial stout. Touch of bitterness, quite sour. Long oily finish, heavier body. Fair bit of carbonation. Understated alcohol. Quite good. BrettTaylor (773) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Poured from bottle into stout glass. Pours a very dark brown with khaki head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and a touch of lactic acid. Taste is smooth with initial tartness then coffee, then fading into dark red fruit. KyotoLefty (10194) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 21, 2017
Tap at Watering Hole. Black with lace. Nose of coffee, chocolate, lactic acid, some vinegar. Vinous flavor, chocolate, cherry, vinegar, a bit of coffee. Decent enough, though basically I hate coffee and vinegar flavors mixed. jinroh (1524) - ESTONIA - MAY 20, 2017
Dark pour, not too much carb in there. Coffee and roast malts in the nose. Burnt caramel. Taste has roast and some sour fruits. Dark, coffee, chocolate, cherries and sour, all together, singing in unity. Tasty stuff! mjmoen (519) - - APR 29, 2017
C. Pours a black color with khaki head. It’s not sour enough to dump, but it does lose points because of it.

EBF 2017. Pours a reddish brown with a small beige head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is, well, of coffee maybe with not much hints of the sour. Roasted malt.Taste is not quite sour and even lightly sweet. More roasted malt without much chocolate and coffee. I thought this was going to be sour? Body is medium, carbonation moderate. A very faint tartness. Not bad but I feel a bit lied to. aracauna (3584) - Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2017
On tap at the brewery in Asheville. Nice dark malts do well with the sour notes. jbruner (4691) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2017
Pours a deep brownish black on tap with bubbly off-white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma and taste of mild lactic acidity, musty funk, and a nice baseline of mild roasted notes. Solid, better than some of the other lips of faith beers lately. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - APR 1, 2017
Poured into a snifter, the appearance was a pitch black color. Thin foamy off white to almost tan sort of colored head. Quick dissipation. Sticky filmy lace.
The aroma sniffed at a blend of sour citrus rind, bitter ends of some pine, and then wraps into dark and milk chocolate that ends up drying out just a touch from the wood. Super light coffee bean. Took a while, but some raspberry/cherry/blackberry comes out.
The flavor melds the sour of the citrus to the bitter dry wood and fluffs up a bit with some sweet from the milk chocolate. Dark chocolate kicks back a bit more in this department. Pine seems barely there. Sour to blended milk chocolate aftertaste rolling on into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fair sipping quality about it. Good sturdy carbonation. ABV felt just a tad under than what the brewer projected. Sourness doesn’t slay my tongue too much.
Overall, nicely done imperialized dark sour stout Belgian sort of thing, oh hell, I have no idea what it’s really supposed to be. Just damn good. bwa5879 (940) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2017
Dark brown/black pour with sixteenth inch creamy khaki head. Powdery Cocoa aroma along with full bodied sour smell resembling raspberry mostly. Softer carbonation finishes a bit tingly. Sour Berry and cocoa blend in flavor more intensely than nose. Nice sour stout, straightforward.
