Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of earth, sweet berry, red fruits into some oak, slight whiskey in there with a hint of vanilla, some lactic and acetic notes. Taste is a mix of earth, roast, some funky, herbal notes, hints of berry, red fruit into some oak, finishing fairly bitter, slightly tart. JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 10, 2013

Stone Sour Fest 2013. Very dark brown pour with an off-white head. Nose is not terribly pleasant. Smoke, vinegar, whiskey, and dark fruit. Lots of oak, some molasses, and herbs. The flavor is a little bit better, but not great. Sweet dark fruit, molasses, and raspberry. Whiskey, oak, tobacco, vinegar, and a dry, leathery finish. onceblind (10322) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2013
At Avery Sour Ale Fest 2013. Clear black with a bit of ruby, no head. Aroma is incredible with sweet earthiness and perfumey whiskey barrels and complex fruity sourness. Flavor unfortunately falls a bit short, bringing only generic sweet earthiness and a little sour booziness. Steve_0 (3744) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Tap at 4th Annual Boulder SourFest (2013). Murky brown pour, almost black, with a medium brown-colored head and good lacing. Roasty, herbal, dark fruity, band-aid, grapey, whisky, lightly spicy aroma. Taste is lightly roasty, bretty, herbal, blueberries, a hint of whisky heat, slightly tart, and dark fruits. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. A bit hot, but pretty tasty.

Draught at Mayor of Old Town. Sour brown with red Flanders flavors. I don’t get the stout part, but overall, a tasty sour red with some fruit berry flavor as well. cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Tap @ Mayor Foco. Pours a clear, deep maroon appearance with little to no head. Tangy, dark berry, mild caramel/chocolate, whiskey, somewhat boozy, tart aroma. Fairly smooth flavor with notes of blackberries, tart raspberries, oak, whiskey, and leather. An interesting experiment but nothing special.
