A-Pours a strange brown color with almost no head to speak of. It looks slick and flat almost.

S-I know this is a wacky beer but boy does this smell like something is wrong. Strong whiffs of malt vinegar. Acetone. A weird, stewed fruit smell as well.

T-Nope. This is malt vinegar with an almost ketchupy flavor. It finishes with a sweet, dark quasi-fruitiness but all is lost by then. One of the worst tasting flavors I have come across.

M-Stinging acidity. Almost bile-like. To its credit, the alcohol is well masked by the intensity of the flavors...and they liger and linger.

O-Something has to be wrong with this bottle. I hope so, at least. If this beer's flavor was intentional I would be shocked.

Fully reviewed last night during our annual Sour and Saison Festival. Thanks for sharing Dan.

Sourfest III 2014.

A- Poured from the 750ml to six pint glasses with a pitch black, oily thick body. A small light tan head forms to a half finger or so but falls to nothing after a few moments. Ting ring leaves some legs and only a few spots of lace.

S- Very pungent aroma of lactic sours, wet dogs and burnt as hell roast grains. Very slight blueberry fruity feel but the aforementioned destroys it along with some acetic.

T- Up front is a huge dose of acetic vinegar and lactic sourness. Upon finishing the sip the sourness just burns the back of my throat as it isn't balanced out by anything else. After sipping, a permanent marker off flavor starts to take over and kill the flavor. Roast grains do a tiny bit but the vinegar and strange marker flavor make it go away quickly.

MF- Fairly dried out body for an Imperial Stout because of the souring bugs with an oily, slick mouthfeel. Carbonation is on the low side. Intense sourness destroys the throat and taste buds in the finish.

Sharpies and insane lactic and vinegar sourness with just a tad of blueberry and roast. The off flavors here absolutely ruin the beer and it hurts to drink after some time. Nightmare is here.
