Looks like a brown ale, not a stout. Smells like some toxic chemical that I'm trying to recall. Tasted like fruit juice and piss, with a chemical aftertaste.

I spat out what I could, but it was enough to give me a headache within minutes.

Maybe, if enough people return this crap to where they bought it, they'll stop making it. THIS IS NOT A STOUT!!! I'll never buy anything from Trout River again. I think there were cleaning chemicals in this batch!

A: The beer is clear very dark amber in color (black when viewed from quite some distance) and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high dense beige head that died down a bit but never completely faded away.
S: Light to moderate aromas of chocolate are present in the nose along with notes of roasted malts.
T: The taste has flavors of dark malts along with notes of chocolate and hints of sourness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and somewhat thin and watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a lot lighter in body compared to other oatmeal stouts and doesn't have any smoothness.

look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Appearance: has the consistency of a lager as I am pouring it into my glass. Black body with a half finger light tan head that leaves a spot of lacing here or there.

Aroma: oh no, sour, sour mash, sour apple mash, nothing else

Flavors: do I really want to drink this. No, but in the name of science I’ll do it. Yes, it is … sour! Sour Stout cool. But, the is a chocolate oatmeal stout and I was in the mood for a really good one.

Mouthfeel: lively carbonation, a sparkling wine like carbonation during the first half, thin on flavors, no depth, just sour, light tartness on the aftertaste

To the Point: no chocolate, no oatmeal or grains, no stout,

I think it is a cool sour stout.
