A- Black as black can be with a dark tan head. Minimal head but plenty of lacing.

S- A wonderful mixture of roasted malt and sour grapes. There is some of the characteristic roasted coffee and chocolate aroma you get with a traditional stout but the sour quality takes over quickly.

T- Wow. I'm sitting here sipping on my glass and it's hard to steal myself away long enough to give a proper review. The tastes follows the nose. Tartness right up front. Next you get just a slight roasted quality you expect from a stout but this quickly gives way to tart grapes/cherries. The aftertaste brings back the roasted malts with a slight sour lingering. Fantastic.

M- Mouthfeel like you would expect from a sour. Tart starts up front immediately and continues all the way through. Bitter finish that reminds you this is still a stout.

I can't do this brew justice with just my meager description. I wasn't really a sour beer lover until I visited Jester King but they have won me over. Somehow they have managed to bring together two completely different types of beer and have done it superbly well. The price and availability (I was even told by employees they aren't making this brew anymore!) keeps this from being something I can try regularly but if you see this on the shelves get as many bottles as you can.
