Bottled 6/29/16. Pours a pitch black color with little to no head. Lacing is decent. I think that it has lost most of its carbonation. Seems a little flat. There is more of a funky farmhouse aroma than anything else. There are some slightly roasted malts but no chocolate or coffee to pick up at this point. Taste follows the same route but there is a tiny bit of chocolate at the end. Mainly that farmhouse taste with slightly roasted malts, that tiny bit of chocolate at the end with a more sour aftertaste. I am not a fan.

A: Beer pours a dark black body with minimal head. Head was a khacki color while it lasted. Almost no lacing and even less head while drinking.

S: Beer aromas are a nice mix of stout (roasted barley and chocolate) and funky sour aromas. Picking up smells of whine and assorted berries.

T: Tastes resemble the nose of the beer. However, the funky flavors are more pronounced. Chocolate and roast are there but hidden behind whine like berry flavors.

M: The mouthfeel reminds me more of a sour than a stout. The beer is light and crisp. The beer reminds me of a whine while swallowing.

O: This is a beer I have wanted for a while but somewhat let down honestly, Would have liked to have seen more of a focus on the stout end than the sour side.

Bottled in September 2015. Poured a jet black color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of roasted malt and chocolate. It was a very smooth blend of dark chocolate, toffee, roasted malt and caramel.
