4.53/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: It poured a dark brown tainted black body with a fluffy and sticky tan head. The head retained well and there was some leggy lacing.

S: It was an aroma bomb with dark almost burnt malts, bitter and milk chocolate, oak and nuts, and cherries.

T: It hit early with sweet bourbon and bold chocolate flavors with tangy fruits (cherries and strawberries). It had a nutty under current and a big bodied cheese funky flavor.

M: It was medium to full bodied with modest carbonation and a tangy and warm finish.

D: I was very surprised by this beer. It was unique, complex and entertaining. It may not be a long session beer but it is one that belongs in the stash for sharing with good friends.

Serving type: on-tap

3.8/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A 4.25 - dark mahogany basically opaque color with some dark red at the edges where it clears up a bit. Ran head that leaves lumpy lacing.
S 3.75 - sour cherries, acetic acid, slight vinegar,
T 3.75 - sour cherries, vinegar, maybe a tiny bit of chocolate/roasted malts in the background? But that's a stretch... it really must be a very small percentage black Tuesday because I get basically no stout characteristics
M 4 - very sour, it does what its supposed to do. Alc completely covered. Medium mouth feel. Aftertaste still just sour cherries, lemon.
O 3.75- its OK. I wouldn't spend 20 bucks on it again.
