Beautiful appearance. Great head, sticky lacing, maybe a slight purple hue or my mind is playing tricks on me. Aroma has some berry darkness with chocolate, coffee grounds, a slight balsamic oakiness and acidity. Flavor is juicy dark berry with oak, tannin, vanilla. Medium creamy body. Awesome dark sour.

Enormous thanks to anotherjoe who is responsible for popping my SARA cherry with matching proper glassware. 750ml capped presentation poured into the matching snifter. The brew is black in color with dark mocha head. Some spotty stringy lace sticks to the glass.

The smell is acidic with lots of tangy fruit inclusion overtop chocolate and coffee roastines. The taste is tart and fruity/tangy with roast like coffee/chocolate and earthiness before some minerals and meaty character into the finish.

This is medium bodied with modest carbonation. It is interesting but not at all what I was expecting based off the label description: Belgian stout aged with boysenberries and barrel aged? Not really a stout at all except for the looks. Whatever, its pretty tasty.

A: Thick, velvety, black with a slight purplish hue.

S: Coffee and vinegar. The sour smell is quite strong with this one.

T: First a wave of espresso followed by rich, fresh berries, and then the lactic sourness kicks in. I'm not sure if the souring was intentional but it plays perfectly with the other beautiful flavors in this beer.

M: Velvet with a mildly puckering finish.

O: Wonderful. Having not been blown away by what I had on tap at Sante Adairius, I was preparing to be underwhelmed by this. Apparently the hype is well deserved; this Adjunct Professor is an excellent brew.
