A: dark with a red hue. little carbonation, no head.
S: tart cherries, bourbon, strong red wine characteristics, chocolate
T: COMPLEX. very strong sour cherry flavor that melts into a very nice red wine taste with hints of chocolate/bourbon/old ale.
M: Thick, if the carbonation was upped just a tad it would be perfect.
O: Excellent beer, i was really expecting this beer to be disappointing. I was very wrong. The sour cherry aspect is just something i have never experienced in any other beer. Highly recommended.
This beer has really fallen off. Very strong vinegar flavor and no carbonation. Was very difficult to finish a 4 oz pour. I have had some bottles that still tasted rather good but for the most part they are going down hill quickly.

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.

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.
