Poured at the wonderful Duckworth's - Park Rd - Charlotte, NC... all drafts $3.50 today!

It pours very dark brown with little to no head or lacing. The nose is toasty - pleasant to look at and smell, but the taste is a letdown - especially after the amazing brews I recently tried by them in VA @ Mekong. It's thinner than an imperial stout should be - very much a flat cola thing going on. It won't sour me on this brewery.

A - Pours light brown w/ a golden reddish hue. Almost like root beer. Little head which dissipates quickly, and no lacing.
S - My favorite part of this beer. Lots of sour cherry and oak aroma. There's some earth and farmhouse funk in there as well. Maybe a hint of vanilla, but no black pepper or tea aroma.
T - Sweet dark fruits up front transform to an acidic tart cherry finish. Faint hop bitterness present in the aftertaste. Can't say I taste any vanilla, black pepper, or tea.
M - Not much carbonation or body in this one. It was a 2009 bottle. I'm not sure if that had an effect on the mouthfeel.
O - This beer was not what I expected, and I feel like it's mislabeled as an Imperial Stout. However, I really like the beer itself. It reminded me a lot of a flanders red. Kinda a beginners sour beer. Enjoyed trying this beer, but I would not pay the steep price for another bottle.
