No sour and no cherry. Not undrinkable but not good either.

A bit disappointed by the name sour but not really the flavor. While the cherry blends well with the regular coffee/cocoa/vanilla flavor mapping of an Imperial Stout, it imparts a fruitiness that is not sweet, but not sour either.

Dark roasted malt, sweet and dark chocolate dominate. Very smooth. The cherries are present in the aftertaste, but are not as strong a flavor as I would have liked. An above average beer.
