COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique beer is made by souring our Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout in used Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels for up to 18 months. The acidic and fruity profile is reminiscent of cherry cordials and chocolate cake.

Dark black in color, thinnish tan head... Aroma of sour funk, dirty socks... Flavor is bizarre, wild yeast and mild malt notes... Sour water, shocking that itís this dark with such thin malts... Not too impressive

Tanned leather. Big sour. Very intresting beer. Very unique. Came to try this beer and I wasnt dissapointed. English personality. The stout is way in the background. If you like sour stuff you should like this.

mansquito (3399) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Trestle Inn, Philadelphia tap ($6): Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma is cherry, chocolate, vinegar, and red wine. Taste has a whole bunch of sourness, especially at the front and then there is some chocolate and malt toward the back. For a sour stout, this was pretty good.

The aroma is sour, wet cardboard. The appearance is deep brown, deep tan head. The flavor is sour wine, chcolate, roast. The finish is a gain a sour red wine, roasted malt. Medium to medium/thick in body. Interesting experiment, but not great.

This poured a very dark red/brown color with a very small beige head. Aroma was lots and lots of port, light buttery notes, and some roast in there too. A bit cheesy and funky, hard to tell if its more from the wine, or the actual souring, with very little stout qualities left. Interesting, but I was hoping for more.

Sampler at the tasting room as íSour Stoutí. Roasty aroma with a hint of vanilla and sour. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and a slight sourness. Not overly sour, but a nice compliment to the stout.

mcberko (6515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours a dark reddish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of sour barrels taking over the roasted notes of the stout, though itís feintly recognizable as being a stout-based. Flavour of sour notes, masking the roasted and chocolate notes. Not much else to describe it with. Solid rendition but it doesnít strike me as a stout or a warranted thing to do to a stout. Good for what it is though.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2012
On tap at Caponeís, Norristown. Man, these names! Anyways, found this to be far more tart than a typical Belgian stout and I guess seeing RBís style designation that makes good sense. Nice tart cherry skins, more acetic than a Bruin. Good stuff.

Draft at Caponeís. Pours hazy dark brownish black with 1-finger off-khaki head. Nose is tart dark fruit, blackberry, port, woody malt. Tastes tart with dark malt and big blackberry, port, and oaky woody notes. Finishes complex and delicious. This one rocks.
