Sampled at THE FESTIVAL 2013 with Andrew, Jay and Kramer. Pours a deep, murky brown body with light brown lacing. Aroma is sour fruit, oak, wine and light roast. Mouthfeel is medium with nice sour vinous flavor, sweet caramel malt, light roast, wood and tart acidity. Very nice sour stout.

Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a dark color, good amount of head which dissipates quickly. Aroma amazing. Lacto, wood pedo. Vinous, roasty notes. Body tart, finish somewhat smoky. Effing lovely, maybe not as sour as I had expected, but very nice.

750 corked and caged bottle. It pours a very dark brown/black color with a brown head that disappears within a minute. The aroma reminds me a bit of Consecration. Heavy balsamic sour and blackberry notes with some nuttiness coming from the wood. Mild vinous red wine and black malt with leather. The flavor is dirty and funky with some nice sweeter notes of dark berries, wood vanillins and maltiness. It’s actually a bit too sweet and not enough of a sour pucker. It is definitely effected by wild yeast with some leather, tart berries and funky underpants, but I was hoping for more tartness here. The finish has a little bit of ashtray roast . This may actually benefit from a year or two in the bottle. Seems like a common thread with this brewer.

deekyn (1364) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 26, 2013
A - pours opaque cola with 1 finger dark tan tight bubbled head with no real lacing. S - consecration comes to mind. Pinot, lacto notes of lemon juice and vinegar. Tart berries and mustiness mix with oak tannins and dark toasted malts. Dark brown sugar as well. M - medium quite rich body. Nice carb. Light tartness with a bitter hop ending. T - tart berries, Pinot, musty oak and brown sugar lead the way. Nice balance of tart and malts up front. Palate is berries and pie crust, with mineral water and dark roasted malts. Ending is an alcohol with bitter grassy resin hops.vegetal notes end the taste O - quite nice very well balanced, tart funky dark malts. 3.8

From bottle @ The Festival. Dark brown (almost black) with a small beige head and little lacing. Aroma is complex with red fruits, brettanomyces, winey notes, wood, roasted malt, light chocolate and some sweetness notes. Taste is moderately sweet and sour with winey notes, roasted malt, red fruits and caramel. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Heavy beer. Complex. I hate the style (dark sour), but this one isn’t that bad.

From bottle at the Festival. Opaque dark pour with tann foam. Chocolate aroma, roasty, sour woody aromas, lots of wine, boozy flavors, acidic roast malt. Palate is heavy and carbonation is low. Another black sour mistake.

CBC. Almost clear dark brown beer. Light and semi dry palate. Mild crispness. Nice meld of mellow dark malt and lightly sour brett. There is no roast or bitterness in the malt. Light crisp and dry finish. Nicely done!
