Well, I think this was the first "Sour Stout" that I had ever had, and I didn't really know what to expect. But it turns out to be much more Sour than Stout. And man oh man is it sour. Like face squisingly tart. Tart and crisp as pretty much any other sour I've had. Funky fermented smell, lemon, apples and the taste follows almost exactly. The only downside is that it leaves your mouth feeling gritty and weird. Lots of carbonation. Not much of the stout comes through, some mild malts if you really look for it. The sour overpowers pretty much everything else, but not in a bad way. Very good.
