On tap at the release party.
A- Wow, I was a little scared seeing this brown beast in my glass, I didn't think it was going to be sour from the look of the beer. Nice brown color with slight red/brown hues and light 1/2 finger head that dissapates quickly.
S- Nice roasted malt and chocolate with tons of sour cherry aroma followed with a hint of bourbon, really light on the bourbon, you will only notice it as it warms up, also detecting some nice wooden tannins in this.
T- Nice chocolate notes with light bourbon immediately followed by an overwhelmingly sour cherry flavor, really interesting beer. Nice dark chocolate and roastiness in the front with tart cherries on the mid, side, and back pallate, extremely dry finish with nice oaky wooden tannins, this will age nicely, it already has a year of conditioning within the bottle. Really a great tasting beer that leaves you wondering the many different flavors, each sip imparts different chocolates, roastiness, oakiness, and wine/cherry flavors.
M- Perfect carbonation that I'm hoping will transition to the bottles, nice flavors and medium body, nice level of tannins for aging.
D- Really easy to drink this beer and as I stated above this beer is fun to drink with the everchanging flavors and layers that leave you wanting more. Highly recommend, gonna try to keep several for the years ahead...

Big thanks to duffman929 for cracking this. Appearance is like a stout... Pitch black with no head. Nose features dark cherries, chocolate, oak, red wine, a hint of soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and tannins. Taste is quite a bit different than the nose, a bit of dark fruit, cherries, heavy tartness, sweet notes on the end. Mouthfeel is smooth and heavy body. Overall, a nice sour stout.

3.5/5 rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours black. A somewhat clear black, but black none the less. Flat. No head whatsoever. Aroma is quite odd: smoky, black cherry, sweet with a light vinegar note. Dark fruits and sour fruit. Taste is similarly odd. A mix of being overly sweet and vinegar tartness. Black cherry, malt vinegar, coffee. A mixture of tastiness and grossness.
Not so great.
