look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Dark black with a light ruby on the edges. Milk chocolate head sits on the edges

S - Dark roasted malt and slight chocolate is what you get first as the porter presence makes itself known. Underneath that is where you get the light sour presence with a dark cherry and sweet tarts

T - Tart cherry up front with a light sweet tarts, lemon, lactic acid. The back end is light funky Brett and a light roasted malt from the porter. The porter adds a very slight aspect that balances it out well without adding too much that takes away from the tartness. Finish is the deep cherry flavor you find near the pit of a juicy cherry.

M - Really a soft beer with minimal carbonation. It has a slight bite to it from the tartness. The finish is dry and has light funk to that lingers on the backend with the big juicy cherries to it.

O - Really good dark sour from SARA that brings a multitude of flavors with cherry tartness from the lactic acid and a light roastedness from the porter

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body with some reddish transparency. Big khaki head. Wispy surface with a medium collar.

Smell - Impressive. Chocolate and coffee roast. Acidic. Fruity. Kinda like cherries and stone fruit. I know that's redundant but go with it. Vanilla.

Taste - A little nutty. Chocolate. Lemony tartness. Masks the remaining flavors.

Mouthfeel - Medium high carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - I like this as much as I could have enjoyed a sour stoutish beer.
