Pours a dark brown with a one finger tan head.

On the nose is sour fruits and some oak. The roast malt character comes in on the end. Definitely smells sour.

Taste is heavy on the oak. Definitely tastes of oak. Some malt comes through and the sourness hits on the front.

Good mouthfeel. Not much to say about this beer really.

This is an okay beer. I wasn't super excited about it but it was easy drinking. Meh.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: dark brown to black with a huge tan head that stays forever on top. Forever. It's still there and doesn't appear to be subsiding.

S: tartness, sweetness, some dark cherry and chocolate

T: at first it's not sour at all, but on the second sip it hit me, especially on the back end. Still, it's malty and roasty first, then sour with some cherry. Not all too sour at all, though.

M: kind of thin with thin, fine carbonation. Feels kind of delicate, which is not how I would like it.

O: the taste and mouthfeel are disappointing. I expected something more like Sour Black, but this just wasn't up to par.
