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.
