On draught at Breakside’s new Milwaukee Taproom. One of my favorite beers, with an amazing sour cherry taste deepened with the rye.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at The Commons, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of rye and toasted bread mostly. Flavour is quite sour for a stout, with soured dark fruits, some moderate acidity and moderate tartness. As always with sour touts, not a fan of the style, but for what it is, decent.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting, a Belgian rye stout, IIRC I have never had a rye stout. Aroma is too restrained, but has some good rye bread and cherry notes. I tasted no Brettanomyces in the flavour, but got more cherries, more rye and a good malt backbone. Roast-y finish
