Whoa! This is a unique experience. I can't compare it to other beers I've tried. It's almost not beer, but something else entirely. It's sweet, and then sour. Very smokey, and malty. There is some oakey taste, but less than expected. It has low carbonation, and an almost savory aftertaste. The closest thing I can compare it to is very high end balsamic vinegar, the kind you actually sip.
I imagine that some beer lovers will not like this at all, but I love it. It's fascinating. It's a sipping beer. I wouldn't drink it all the time, but I definitely plan to have it again. If you like something different and unusual once in a while, give it a try.

Sample on tap at Max's (3/11/14)
A: Pitch black with good lacing.
S: Sour, tart and funk with a lot of cherries.
T: Tart. Sour. Nice taste of cherries. This is only vaguely a stout at all.
M: Smooth with only a tingling of carbonation.
O: This is a good beer, but it is quite pricey given what it is.
