3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a dark mahogany color with a tanish head and nice sticky lacing. The nose has a big dose of chocolate and roasted notes, nutty and sharp with a hint of sour. The flavor is tart and roasty but the sour comes across mainy as astringency or infected yeast. Good and robust, but just seems a little too balanced between the two styles that neither take the reigns, but the other makes the other look like a flaw. Interesting; not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Large Format - Super dark colored Stout with absolutely zero head. A sour and sweet smell. You can smell a slight hint of wood on the nose. As a none traditional sour beer its interesting. Has a slight sour taste but the Stout characteristic are pretty over powering.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served displaying a ruby highlighted, black/brown color, with a presentable layer of brownish tan foam that reduced rather quickly to a persistent, thin ring, light film, and curtainy lacing. The nose was roasted, mocha notes, malt, and oaky tannins. The taste began with a tart sting, and a bit of dark fruit. The roasted and mocha notes then became somewhat hidden, with a touch of roasted & earthy astringency showing up for the finale. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, and well put together, but also not a big fan of sour Stouts.

Black pour with a small light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, Belgian yeast, lightly sour, caramel, coffee, soy, light alcohol. Medium to full bodied, sour chocolate with Belgian yeast. Still not a fan of sour stouts, but this isnt badly made for one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. Id drink another.
