look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 750ml bottle to tulip

A: Pours a dark ruby black with an effervescent, foamy head that dissipates down to a quarter inch of creamy, off white head.

S: Smells of dark fruits dipped in vinegar with an underlying roasted note from the malts. Quite an interesting combination...unlike anything I've experienced before.

T: Pungent sourness punches you in the taste buds then a slight sweetness from the dark fruit comes through with an underlying roastiness. The sour notes come back to dominate again in the end with a dry, pungent finish. Excellent stuff...

M: A lot drier than I was expecting. The carbonation gives it an almost champagne feel. Not viscous or cloying at all which is a good thing in this stout's case.

O: Never been a huge fan of sours but this is one sour I can get on board with. The balance between sweet and roasted with sour is superbly executed. So easy to drink and refreshing...my new favorite Jester King beer.

Served in Jester King stemware (thanks Michael). The beer is a near black shade with an oily beige head. The aroma is quite interesting. Dark fruits, plum, brett, oak, sour cherry, rye bread. Intense sour with an overly ripe sour cherry flavor. Lactic mouthfeel with a puckering finish. Roast and stout character is overwhelmed by the wild ale component. That said, I don't mind the imbalance that much. Intriguing and interesting. A nice sipper.
