Reviewed from notes:
This is a momentous occasion. Probably the only time I'll try this with the price tag, this was a grad gift from my girlfriend, very exciting.

Pours near black with a minimal head and not really any lacing.

On the nose, it is definitely sour! I'm getting mustard and pickle juice. Very slight roastiness.

Holy Jesus! Extremely sour! At first sip I think I'm sucking on a Warhead. Taste is primarily unsalted pickle juice. It's more of a savory sour than a sweet sour. Like pickles instead of lemons. Very little in the way of stout characteristics. So different.

Very thin with medium carbonation. Doesn't feel at all like a stout. Aftertaste of tartness won't seem to diminish.

Overall this is just so different. I'm not getting any "stoutness" really, but the sourness is there in abundance. Good because it is so different, but for the price I probably wouldn't shell out another $20 for a bomber.
