Tasted at Goose Island Southern Migration Bottle Share. Seriously!?!? This is a soured Porter. On taste alone I would have sworn up and down that it was a Flemish Red. Pours a barely red dark brown. Cherries and boysenberries on the nose. Flavor is sour and sweet with a just barely there bourbon flavoring. Thick yet a touch live. More please. Bottle - Tasted at Bottle Share

Big thanks to Chris for sharing this sucker. Dark red pour, minimal head. Aroma is sour cherries, vanilla, oak, bourbon, smells freaking awesome. Taste, wow, lots of oak, vanilla, mild sourness, nice amount of carbonation. I love this beer!

3/1/2014. From bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of dried fruit, sugars, spice, oak. Very complex and balanced. Tart and sour with fruity flavors.

bottle shared by tom10101, thanks dude. pours unclear brown-reddish with a small light beige head, some retention and lacing. cacao and cherries, roasted spicy chocolate, unmistakable bourbon - loads of it, even tannic, grass, pepper, other spices. surprisingly not too boozy with a moderate sweetness. light to medium acidity - few balsamic notes and an overall nice acidity complexity. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, grassy-spicy astringent finish. just a tad roastiness missing for it to taste more like a porter in my sense, but eh, it’s a quite nice offering!

Bottle:   Has this sweet chocolate cherry covered Bourbon sorta sourness going on.   Sweet and tart, with that chocolate covered cherry aspect.   Instead of Rum we get Bourbon.   Great balance, smooth, a little dry.   When I thought Sour Porter, give me a break, but it actually works.   Its more Sour than Porter, which is why it works.   Showcases the chocolate covered cherry aspects pretty well.   Smooth, tart, yet with that chocolate covered cherry and bourbon.   Doesn’t hurt that its 12.1% either.   I am rather impressed with this one, and it exceeded my expectations.   It really is like a soured dark chocolate covered cherry aged in Bourbon.   Wonderful stuff!
