Trying batch 1 and 2 together. Pours black with a tiny bit of brown around the edges. Medium light brown head. Some lacing, good retention for a sour. The first batch has a mild aroma with an acidic berry edge, some soured roast fruitiness. Batch 2 has a lot more berry character and sweetness. It generally comes together better with more depth and complexity, adding in more chocolate and some coffee. Taste is similar for both versions. Batch 1 is pretty acetic and sour but lacks the richer stout and berry flavors of batch 2. The second batch has a wonderful mix of chocolate, roast, berries and sour. It all works together much better than I expected. Very tasty stuff. Mouthfeel is thin for batch 1 but fuller and fairly smooth for batch 2. The second batch us clearly superior at this point and is probably the best dark sour that I've tried.
