Cheers to Goblinmunkey7

A: Pours dark, deep brown to black - pours with a medium to large, light brown head, fades to a wispy cap, leaves a few streaks of lacing

S: Big, bold, and burnt with some big sour - dark chocolate with some burnt cocoa - dark chocolate malts, burnt grains - some wet, damp sour - very lactic, with some wet farmhouse funk and some vinegar - some sour dark fruits as well

T: Very burnt and very sour - somewhat of a harsh combination, hard to drink at first although it gains some charm as it warms up - lactic, musty, damp, dirty cellar sourness - very wet, vinegar-like to an extent - dark fruits, such as figs, plums - a large amount of funk, some barnyard flavors - stout base is very burnt, with roasty chocolate, char - decidedly harsh, which I guess may be the intention - update: the flavor gets old quickly, splitting a bottle of this is actually a challenge

M: Medium body, nicely carbonated, not entirely smooth, finishes with some residual lactic weirdness

O: Not as memorable as Disco Metal

Sour stouts are very hit or miss. This has a huge amount of what generally makes Jester King beers great, like their intense funk and yeasty flavors. Overall, they somewhat clash with the burnt malt profile. If you're a fan of the style, this may be worth seeking out.
