Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer
Appearance: Dark brown, pours with an off-white head - retains a nice ring, leaves some streaks of lacing
Smell: Sour and tart - lactic with some acidity - it looks very dark, but it actually smells like it could be lighter - mostly caramel and amber malts - dark fruits, like cherries and applies
Taste: A sour stout that tastes good? I thought this was impossible - tart and sour - lactic and acidic sourness - very puckering - dark and roasty notes, with some caramel - some chocolate and coffee - dark fruits, like cherry skins and apple peels - some woody oak as well
Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely carbonated, nicely puckering
Overall: This is way better than I could have expected
This is the best sour stout I've ever had. Serious bonus points for this. And it might be the best beer I've ever had from The Bruery. It's nicely sour, nicely tart, and has a nice malt base. Well done.

2013 bottle from Fonduevoodoo in CanBIF Spring 2014. From notes.
A - Poured black with one finger of beige head that went fast. Decent spotty lace and virtually no retention.
S - Dark fruit, sour cherry, yeast, tart, old coffee, wood, overripe dark fruit, tobacco. Pretty cool and complex.
T - Holy shit this was sour. I wasn't expecting the sting that this gave off at all. A very aggressively sour stout that featured tart notes, tobacco, musky wood and lot's of acidity.
M - Stinging acidity, strong carbonation, medium to full body.
O/D - This was a pretty nice stout. Sour and complimented by those robust stout flavours but perhaps dominated by that sourness. All the flavours seemed to come together to form a pretty complex and enjoyable beer.
