Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Prairie Dino Glass.

Pours a deep brown, opaque body with a chocolate colored head that reduces slowly and leaves nice retention and lacing.

The aromas definitely indicate infection, lacto, funk, sour grapes, some coffee and chocolate.

On the tongue.. well, it's infected. If this were a sour stout I'd rate it as such, but tonight I was expecting a rich, vanilla forward imperial stout. Instead I got tart cherries, funk, leather, coffee, chocolate, no vanilla.

Mouthfeel is thin, which I'm assuming is due to infection. Medium carbonation.

Honestly this wouldn't have been a terrible American Wild or sour stout, but that wasn't the original intention and there's really no vanilla or heavy stout character here.
