Had on tap at Jester King

A-Nice black color with a thin head of foam. Honestly, I was so impressed by the taste of this beer I don't remember the color of the foam or the lacing.

S- Roasted coffee and chocolate, but subdued smell when compared to a typical stout.

T- Shocked how good it was from the first sip. Just the perfect counter balance of roasted goodness of a stout with the funky flavor of a sour. It works so well! Reminds me of a dark sour Jolly Pumpkin does but this one is better.

M- Very pleasant mouthfeel and just right for this beer. Not the creamy, silky feel of a stout but I think the thinner texture works better for this beer.

O- The surprise of the day. I was not expecting to have a sour, funky stout this good. Great job Jester King!
