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.

Tasted at the Triple Rock Sour and Barrel Aged Fest on 2/12/2011. This sour/wild ale pours a medium brown color form the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is chocolate and caramel, fruity and sweet, with a hint of wood. A medium bodied sour/wild ale. The malts are fruity, caramel, chocolate and sweet. The hops are herbal. Tart and a touch of funk. Perhaps a touch thin tasting, but I have never gotten the ‘feel’ for sour stouts. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

swoopjones (5887) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2012
draft at Jupiter Sour Fest, Berkeley, CA. Dark black pour, medium to lighter bodied, khaki head. Carbonation seemed somewhat high, Roasty with a decent hit of tart sourness. The roast & sour thing seems to throw me off a bit. Decent

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Draft. Dark mahogony beer with a tan head. Tart aroma. Tart/light sour flavor with dark fruits and light chocolate. Medium bodied. Tart/light sourness lingers with dark fruits and malt. Easier drinking than I thought an 8% sour stout would be.

Tasted on Sour Sunday at The Jupiter. Pours dark black with beige bubbles. Nose is light sour mash. Med+ body. Flavor is sour, like sour malt, finishing with dark malty stout, but sour is ever present. Wild!

joeneugs (3241) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 18, 2012
On draft at Beer Revolution. I’m not a fan of sour stouts, but this one was very nice. It pours black with a khaki colored head. The aroma has some buttery toffee and some dark fruit. Not much funk or astringency. The flavor is pleasantly lemony lactic with notes of toffee and cocoa. Virtually no acetic character with a lemony, bitter, roasty, tobacco finish. Despite all this going on, it remains mellow and drinkable. Really nice.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a snifter. Pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head and not much in the way of lacing. The nose carries a moderate amount of diacetyl. As drabmuh points out, this was mixed with a bit of vanilla and oak, creating something akin to cake batter. Whatever it was, I didn’t really enjoy it. After it warmed up, some moderate lactic acid came through as well as just a touch of vinegar. The flavor is a bit better. Moderate roast and oats plus a fair bit of acidity. Very mild acetic presence and a touch of dark fruit. Medium body with a dry, sour finish. Okay, but I really can’t get past the nose.
