750 ml bottle, 2013 edition. 05/13/13 printed on the bottle, I assume that's the bottled on date. Served in a tulip, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing, either. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like tart cherries, dark fruit, roasted malt, and some vinegar. It tastes like tart cherries, dark fruit, vinegar, lemon peel, vinegar, and some roasted malt and blackberries. It's more of a sour brew than a stout, not that I'm complaining. Mouthfeel/body is medium, with low/moderate carbonation. I think it's a pretty good brew, I might have to pick up another bottle soon. $18.99 a bottle. It's pricey but tasty!

T-Starts with some roasted malt and dark fruits, Has slight coffee and chocolate. Then finishes with a bunch of sourness.

M-LIghter, creamy, some carbonation but not much.

O-Another excellent sour from The Bruery, they maybe expensive but they are worth at least one try. With many being worth repeat purchases.
