Pretty muted for what I was expecting. Just not very impressive as far as sour black ales go.

Seems more like a Belgian Stout than a wild ale to me, and it's a very good Belgian Stout at that. Has nice body for the style. A pretty strong, desirable cherry taste comes through, but I'm not getting much tartness. Hides the ABV very well. Strong effort, well worth the purchase.

Poured from a can into an Else Wear stem glass.

Dark brown-black pour, looked almost like a stout. Ample head, good retention. Funky, syrupy fruit in the nose, acetic. Blehh...taste was pretty bad, an oxidized mess, dark coffee roastiness, stale fruits, vinegar, used tea bags, medicine, wet cardboard. Massively off, and no tartness whatsoever. Tasted like a bad fruit beer mixed with a bad porter. No real comment to make on the mouthfeel, other than "undrinkable." I'm just glad this was a small sample.
