Aroma was pretty intense, with a deep chocolately/roasty smell, with hints of banana and possibly cherries. Appearance was as expected from a stout - dark opaque brownish black, with minimal head. Taste is interesting... not sure I’m a huge fan. A light sweetness at first, followed by a combination of medium bitter taste and a light sour taste, with the sour finishing out the aftertaste. Palate has a full body that actually feels somewhat lighter due to a little carbonation on the tongue. Has a thick, creamy texture, almost oily? Finish is pretty long, especially in the back of the throat. Overall a pretty good beer, although definitely not my favorite. Without the sourness and with a little more sweetness, it would probably bump up the taste quite a bit (in my opinion).
A dark Belgian-style stout with notes of spice, coffee, chocolate & oak The 13th Hour Is The Witching Hour and a time when strange brews can occur With 13 ingredients, we combine the roasted chocolate and coffee notes of a stout with the complex spicy character of a Belgian-style ale aged in oak for a dark, robust, and bewitching brew.
More Belgian flavor than stout.

Thirteenth Hour is a pretty distinct Imperial Stout from a brewery that isn’t know for making a lot of them. This brew has some intriguing Belgian leanings. It pours almost black with a malty, fruity, and subtly spicy nose. It has chocolate, cherry, plum, raisin, and currant flavors. It’s full-bodied and bittersweet. This brew is complex and unique. emincems (90) - - APR 3, 2017
most underrated beer of all time! complex taste of belgian sour yeasts, chocolate, wood and roasted malts. excellent brew. HuskerTan (2168) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - FEB 27, 2017
A- Sour cherry, black cherry, subtle oak, slightly sour.
A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Tart cherry, medium sourness.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, sweet finish.
O- Much more of a sour ale than a stout, let alone an imperial stout. Lots of black cherry and cola flavors and not so much coffee or chocolate. Nonetheless, it’s tasty. SirLimpsalot (4162) - SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2017
@Basunen 17-2-4: Mycket diskret doft och smak. Lite lätt lakrits och en snäll ton av torkat frukt. Gott men inte bäst

Bottle from a mixed box of unknown origin and age. Overall this is busy beer. It is dominated by a sourness from the barrel treatment. You get a little malt from the base beer but not much. Good taste but definitely not a traditional stout. Suttree (6358) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Black, with a ring of foam. Smells like coffee, burnt toast, and some pit frit and red wine. I get some cinnamon or something like that as well. Taste is coffee and chocolate, of course, and some spices like maybe cinnamon again, then ginger, or cardamon? Notes of raisin and red wine pop up again. Also a weird peat-y note, although I don’t see anything about that in the description. Finhead (1742) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2016
A dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has a wild mixture of black cherry, plum, vanilla, and oak. It has a medium body with lively carbonation. The taste is tart with an almost sour finish. This one may have been infected. RobertDale (6380) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Sample at Strong Ale Fest 2016. Comes black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and some dark fruit. Nice. SG111 (1762) - New York, USA - NOV 8, 2016
