It was a gusher. A little worried because the foam was incredibly sour. Once in glass, more pleasurable sour in the nose. Initial sour, cherry, with almost grape Koop aid flavor. Followed by sour fruit then some tannin from the barrel. Interesting beer, but wouldn’t want to drink much of it.

pushkinwow (1966) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
750ml bottle. Brown with a tan head. Roasted malt, mild tart and sourness but not over the top, becomes nice and dry with a moderate+ carbonation and a mild fresh body, some cherry on the finish and quite enjoyable.

Bottle from mane liquor shared to celebrate our ironman success! Wow this is weird. Pours pitch black like a typical stout but huge sourness in the aroma! So confused right now. Taste is full of roasted coffee, oaky vanilla and dark chocolate upfront, then you get smacked by the sourness. Heaps of tartness and barnyard funk in the finish. Such a weird beer but it works wonderfully!

Tap at brewery June 2014 Pours dark black with a nice tan head and some good legs. nose is roasty sour, lite vinegar, lots of roast under the sour. favors are very balanced between the sour and the roast. this is very solid. long roasty finish with lingering puckering sourness. this is quite nice! Need to find some bottles of this!

jaghana (3753) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle 75cl @1rst FRBG. Nose is on wood, oxidized like. Aroma is rich on dark chocolate, sour cherry notes, mirabelle, apricot, caramel and licorice, some acidity. Interesting, but the usual stout is more impressive.

Salmoniform (477) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Poured from bottle to snifter glass. Jet black hue with creamy brown head. Aroma is crazy with essences of cherry, chocolate, toffee, lactic, coffee, raisin, slight soy, caramel. Mouthfeel is great with a hefty medium body and smooth carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness with an immediate sourness and astringent bitterness to round everything out. Overall this is a complex crazy brew that somehow really works!

On tap at the brewery! Dark chocolate, woody aroma. Dark black in color, tan head. Flavor is dark cherry, chocolate, roasted malts, and light funk. Light tartness on palate, very mild compared to some sour stouts. Very pleasant.
