650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2011 bottle #183/348.
Appearance - Inky and glass staining stout. Nice. A few wisps on the surface. Love the viscosity.
Smell - Dark bitter chocolate. Nutty, but I'd never identify it as walnuts. Slightly boozy.
Taste - And it's sour. Dammit. Chocolatey and a bit nutty. Definite lactic sourness. Dammit Jackie O's.
Mouthfeel - Nice and viscous. Vinous and sour. Not really intense, but it's enough to ruin it.
Overall - I had high hopes. Why are all their stouts soured like this? Ironically, it's a cleaner sour than their sours.
Edit: Changed the numbers based on an unshitty 2013 bottle.

32 ounce growler filled earlier today at Blacklick Wine and Spirits. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head that stayed around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, nuts/walnuts, and some dark fruit. The taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some burnt/charred malt and a bit of coffee. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and syrupy with moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty good stout, next time I'll have to get a 64 ounce growler instead! Definitely worth trying if you come across it somewhere.
