A - dark black with thin white head, almost no laces
S - coffee, chocolate, fruit, slight smoke
T- initial coffee stout smoothness, followed by tart & sour fruit, tart
M - sour stout? confusing - smooth and light-medium body, but jarring contrast
O - A good idea a bit unbalanced, like a coffee stout with an uppercut of sour apple, interesting, but only once

Served in a 16 oz pint glass at the Pourhouse, Westmont, NJ

American wild ale stout with a sour twist. This is a good beer if your a sour, dark beer fan. Pours a nice head with an interesting aroma. The base beer is good with chocolate and malts but the sour really takes the show. It's kinda like Tart of Darkness with a Carton Brewing twist. This beer is worth seeking out.

Bottom Line: Another Carton Brewing gem!

On tap in a stemmed tulip.

A- Dark brown color, minimal thin head. Lots of spotty lacing and visible carbonation in the dark brew.

S- Sour yet beer-like. Vanilla, some dark malt.

T- Sour light fruits mixed with stout malts; coffee, chocolate.

M- Very dry. Tart, sour. Beer-like. Very smooth.

O- Better than it looks.

Tap.

Pours jet black with a two inch fine light tan head.

Smells of roasted coffee, cocoa, figs, and grapes.

Flavor is of tart grape, roasted coffee, and some oak woodiness.

Medium body with a light tingle of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very nice dark wild ale with some great flavor and aroma. Very good brew and worth trying, hopefully I have the chance to again.
