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.

On tap at Craftsman, pours a very dark brown with an off white head, the aroma has a good amount of chocolate and dark fruits with a sour touch, the flavor has a tart front end with quite a bit of chocolate and port coming through as well, abv tastes bigger than the 5.8%, interesting.

On draft at the Brass Tap, pourex a black color with lromas of tart choclate, light vanilla and so.e barnyard. Flavors were the same, with some tawney charecteristics. I am not a fan of this beer nor the style.

stantheman (900) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2013
On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. Very dark, almost black, with a moderate tan head. I’ll be brief, I promise. Though quite drinkable, the flavours are very unsubtle. Barrel aged it may be, but it tastes like nothing more than a straightforward mashup of sour and stout. Okay, but I’d have preferred more stout and less sour.

GothGargoyle (2415) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
Deep black with a good sized tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is raisins, brown sugar, dried fruits. Creamy mouthfeel, reasonably thin bodied, mildly sour on the palate. Taste is dried apples, raisins, malt vinegar, wood. Lacking a little in stout characteristics.

coreyc1221 (282) - Truckee, California, USA - JUN 24, 2013
The version I got was the Mendonesia Sour Stout on tap at Mellow Fellow in Truckee, CA. Smells tart and yeast blended very well together. Almost black color with a short tan head. Sweeeeet tart taste at first then mellow but still sour citrus. Damn good. Lotta different things going on at the same time.

baraciisch (2873) - California, USA - JAN 21, 2013
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 it’s this dark with such thin malts... Not too impressive
