Ale brewed with summit hops. Triple fermented. First in French Oak Foudres, second in pinot noir and whiskey barrels with brett and other critters. Finally in the bottle for natural carbonation.

Bottle into a goblet. Pours a beautiful black with a light brown head. No lacing. Aroma is super tart, sour, and funky with a slight roast/smokiness. Taste is surprisingly subdued compared to the aroma. Thinking a lot of the aroma comes from the barrels. Very roasty, cocoa, and soy-filled with a light tartness. This beer does have a very expansive palate though. From chocolate and coffee to citrus fruit and wood. In the argument over whether a sour stout should be classified as a sour ale or a stout this would be a stout.

750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Bottled March 2013. Pours a deep brown, not quite opaque, with a minimal beige head. Aroma of berry fruits, sour funk, toasted brown sugar, oak, soy, cocoa, earth, and coffee. Flavor of oak, roasted malts, soy, balsamic vinegar, berries, cocoa, wine, and bretty funk. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky, fruity, dry, umami mouthfeel. Really complex and interesting. I have to hand it to Anchorage for doing this much to a beer and not ruining it.

SHIG (3915) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle: Poured a black brown with light brown head. Aroma was sour and seemed bacteria filled. Very sour malt taste with dirty wood. Not a style I like and this fits the reason.

750ml bottle, shared with local raters. Very dark brown color. Thin light brown head. Couple splotches of lace. Clear around the edges. Awesome chewy texture, light, lightly crisp carbonation. A little bit effervescent, not as much as in other Anchorage brews. Lightly dry in the finish. Awesome aroma. Roasty malt, big bitter chocolate, light coffee, bit of citrus works well with the roasty chocolate coffee. Like a sour stout, but much less chewy, much more bretty funk. Good moderate bitter taste, light zesty sweet, light tart. Delicious, super-interesting stuff.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Tasted on 7/12/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Belmont Station. Pours almost completely black with an average tan head that slowly settles into a collar of lace. The nose is prune with coffee, dark chocolate, roast, and a nice red wine vinegar and citrus sourness. The flavor is the same, with all of the flavors nicely melded, and the sourness not really kicking in until the finish. The body is medium and tannic with average carbonation and a long roasted dark chocolate, coffee, and sour red wine vinegar and citrus finish.

750 ml bottle to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a dark cola with thin light beige lacing. Smells solid; malty, tart, and funky. Tastes like it smells with some light red wine notes. Average on the palate. Solid beer.

Échantillonnée d’un marathon de dégustation: Le brett est définitivement plus présent avec ses notes cuirs et de cheval mouillé. Les tanins du chêne sont délicat et se marient bien avec les malts rôtis, j’ai hâte de voir comment le dedio et lacto vont s’intégrer avec le temps.
