4/5 rDev +10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Produced a 2.5 finger cream colored head. Lacing was minimal. Beer color is a dark walnut, (non-translucent).
The smell is of dark chocolate, and roasted malts, and a little dark fruits.
The taste was similar, but with the dark fruit producing a slightly tart taste. Dry finish. Medium mouth-feel, and carbonation.
Good stuff, I'd get it again.

A: This poured a nearly opaque dark mahogany with a little light tan head.
S: It smelled like earthy roasted barley and copper, with a little currants and grassy yeast.
T: It tasted like fresh currants and roasted earthy barley, with bitter copper and sour grassy yeast. It had a dirty earthy aftertaste.
M: It was thick with subtle carbonation. Nice big body.
D: This wasn't a very compelling brew. The scent and taste were less than enjoyable. The body was very nice and the alcohol was well hidden, so it was easy to drink. Just not worth it at all.

From 10/09/13 notes. Had an 8 oz. pour of this on tap at Pony Bar HK in NYC.
a - Pours a murky, reddish brown color with one inch of off white head and low carbonation evident.
s - Smells of sour dark fruits, roasted malts, some chocolate, toasted malts, currants, and sour red wine. Interesting mix of stout and sour dark fruits.
t - Taste follows the nose pretty closely, with maybe a little bit more stout quality to it. Tastes of roasted malts, sour dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, toasted malts, and burnt malts.
m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink, a slightly sour twinge to it.
o - Overall an interesting sour-stout type of beer, though not my favorite. Not a ton going on other than roasted notes and sour dark fruits. Decent, but wouldn't seek it out again...would probably just go for Bruery ToD.
