Comes out of the tap a warm sable just a scratch above black with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled tan head. Malty aroma has chocolate, caramel, cherry and nutty hints. Satisfying flavor has a core of roast malt plus notes of cherry, more sweet than sour, Texture has good body and plenty of fizz. If you like cherries and stouts, this is a must!

No sour and no cherry. Not undrinkable but not good either.

A bit disappointed by the name sour but not really the flavor. While the cherry blends well with the regular coffee/cocoa/vanilla flavor mapping of an Imperial Stout, it imparts a fruitiness that is not sweet, but not sour either.
