Draft. Dark brown pour, almost black, with a small tan head. Chocolate, vinegar, sweet red cherries, roasted malt, and light bourbon barrel character. I’m not a fan of sour stouts, this one was ok.

Pours very dark brown with a small khaki head. Nose is quite vinegary. Some bourbon, oak, and a mild malt sweetness. There’s a bit of sour cherry, grass, and roasted malt. The flavor is quite similar. Roasted malt, wood, mild bourbon, molasses, and a fair amount of balsamic and red wine vinegar. Body is kind of thin and carbonation is a bit low.
