4.7/5  rDev +10.1%

Had on tap a while ago at Black Sheep Lodge.

Pours cloudy brown, ivory head, light lacing, smell vanilla, sour apricot, sour cherry, tastes tart, sour fruits, nice rich malts, oak, full bodied, big carbo. I love it. Haven't had a phenomenal sour in a while and this is a great treat.

Imagine, if you will, the finest Imperial Stout ever made, smokey, chocolatey, liquorish-y and full bodied on the nose and the mouth. Then, take a never-before acomplished perfect pairing of Honey-sweet Boubon and VOILA...Mysterium Verum Volume XV will magically appear in your minds-eye, stirring into action the very best dopamine and serotonin mix, creating, on the palate, unadulterated love on the taste-buds!

4.25/5  rDev -0.5%

Appearance: Arrives as a midnight black liquid with an inch of foam that curtains the glass

Smell: Fudge, roasted coffee and bourbon

Taste: The fudge and roasted coffee deliver the first punch, with the bourbon rounding out the profile by mid-palate; after the swallow, other flavors such as coconut and graham cracker develop along with a sour element that adds an entirely different dimension; the slight sour flavor nicely complements the fudge, bourbon and vanilla in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet from the ABV

Overall: I really like the barrel treatment as well as the hint of sour that sets this beer apart from others in the style
