look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appears solid black in color with a off white frothy large head which gives the impression of a high carbonation level. The viscosity appears to be medium.

The aroma is comprised of tart dark cherries, acidic coffee, toasted oak, mild pear and strong undertones of dark chocolate/ coco nibs.

Taste initially is very acidic which makes the mouth water slightly. undertones of dark cherries and plumbs are associated with the strong acidity. Near the finish undertones of mild coffee, bitter chocolate strike the palate which creates a nice balance to the initial acidity.

There is medium viscosity but the carbonation is moderate high which creates a crispness in the mouth.

A well-balanced interesting take on the sour category. One of the more complex sours I have had for some time.
