aboiut 10oz draft pour into a lost abbey chunky tumbler.
pours a dark maroon, maybe dark purple. Fair amount of head about a fingers worth but fades away quickly.
the aroma is very intriguing. You get the sour cherry and some strong vinegar also along with some dark earthy notes a very dry nose similar to a big red wine.
the taste is fantastic. upfront you get a mix of the barrel some bourbon notes play with the wine barrel flavors. followed by some dark grape and cherry notes along with tart vinegar in the middle of the palate. then it finishes with a very dry mouth sucking bite.
Drinkablility is amazing. went through the glass no problem. look forward to trying this gem from a bottle.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
