OK, I love sours, I love stouts! I love sour stouts! This is not good.
Nose is sour grapes and dark fruit
Look and mouthfeel are appropriate for the style, dark, opaque, flat, no lacing
Taste is boozy on the front, sour balsamic vinegar in the middle, moving to dark fruit and then a terrible, terrible lingering aftertaste of astringent malt
Better when warm, I honestly have it a fighting chance, ferociously bad when cold.
I may spill this on purpose.

Perfect beer to pair with Asian food. Why? Because it's straight soy sauce.
Appearance was almost stout like with a thin layer of head on top.
Smell was of faint tart funk and malt.
Taste was odd. Somewhere between a black ipa, a stout, and the funky aromas and esters of a farmhouse ale. Flavors moved between bitter black malt, noble hops, a touch of sweetness, a bit of tartness, and some roasted malts too.
Mouthfeel was heavy, syrupy, and not nearly dry enough for a Saison.
I Was really stoked to try this, but it didn't end up being anything I'd like to revisit soon.

Poured into Chimay chalice
Dark oil, definitely can't see through it. A thin tan head. Very pretty.
Sour fruit up front, but quickly over powered by roasted coffee.
I wish the taste followed the nose. The coffee taste still follows, but the sour fruit the dominating flavor. Interestingly, it reminds me a little bit of Stone's Vertical Epic 11-11-11 with a slight peppery taste at the end.
Good thick coating, small bubbles.
Very interesting beer, certainly unique, but I never need to try it again.
