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.

mcberko (14365) - 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 it’s 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 doesn’t strike me as a stout or a warranted thing to do to a stout. Good for what it is though.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown. Mild bourbon aroma. Medium body. Flavor is lightly sour, dark malt, light bourbon. Nothing really strong, but the combined flavors are very good.

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!

"A bit of an odd duck. Definitely well balanced between sour.funky and smooth chocolatey stout. The combo was interesting, but didn’t quite work for me as the best ones have (thinking Tart of Darkness or J pumpkin). Molasses sweetness, roasted malts, lemony pucker and a hint o cheese. A work in progress, perhaps, that i’d get again."

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2012
Draft at Capone’s. 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.

bb (8539) - 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.
