Aroma of plums, coffee, spice and malt. Clear dark brown color not much of a head. A slightly tart taste with notes of chocolate, and spice like 3 styles of beer merged into one. A medium body with a sour coffee finish. mike5326 (1788) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2017

Bomber. Roasted malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and tart cherry. Pours dark brown with a large light brown head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with roasted malt and coffee flavors to go with a medium body and creamy mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and tart with tart cherry and chocolate coating the palate nicely. Quite good. dinkle50 (1583) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Black pour with a thin espresso head. Aroma of oak and some cherries. Medium bodied. Taste has some chocolate notes with hints of cherries as well. Finish is nice, not sour, not sweet, like a chocolate covered tart cherry. No lace present. commonshawn (1339) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Tap at muddy waters with samadueche. Cola brown black with small white head. Tart nose. Taste is tart and sour, more so than any semblance of stout. Interesting, but big sour, little stout.

Clear black body with some rapidly dissipating tan head. Nose is initially sour but I smell lots of raisin, fig, and chocolate. Taste is unique. It first comes at you with some sour berries but soon the roasted malt appears. A sour chocolate lingers. Every so often I notice coffee. Lightly bodied add lightly carbonated. This is a fun blend of styles that works better than I thought it would. I’d drink another. stevoj (5867) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 18, 2017
Grunt fill from Winco.. Not normally a big sour fan, but was intrigued by the Belgian slant on this. It lives up to the description , resembling a sour quad or dubbel.Dark brown / black body, small skin of bubbly beige head. Aroma features the chocolate first, some plums or figs in the background. Taste is more chocolate, pit fruit, brown sugar, with a sourness that seems odd at first, but fits right into the mix. This beer hits it at many levels. chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 16, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2017 On tap at Downtown Drafts in Gainesville GA.
Clear but opaque and essentially black body with a rather weak head, ruby highlights at the edge, and a modicum of lacing.
Sweet and sour aroma with hints of ripe soft fruits and chocolate.
Moderately sour flavor that is also mildly bitter. Some dark fruit notes with chocolate, but the tartness is more obvious.
Overall: excellent for style (allowing for a sour stout style). bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2017
22 ounce bottle best by date of May 6, 2018. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black wtih about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. I like the aroma, the brew smells like roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit/berries, coffee and some earthiness. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of tart berries, wood and a bit of green apple flavors. Not a big amount of sourness, but enough to know that it’s a sour/tart ale. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy and coating with a decent amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good sour stout, I enjoyed it. Certainly worth trying, I wouldn’t mind having it again sometime! $16.99 a bottle. jandd1983 (4680) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of malts, coffee and smoke. The taste was similar to the aroma with more malts, coffee, sugar, smoke and wood. It was slightly tart and a little sweet. Different than what I expected.
