We brewed a stout (no, not Black Tuesday, this one is only 5% abv if you can believe it), but we then decided to throw it into oak barrels...and added our special blend of souring bacterias and yeasts. The result is a perfectly tart yet awesomely dark and roasty sour stout. Not a style you see too often - and in our opinion, not a style you see often enough.
Originally part of the Provisions series.

Fra flaske på Cardnaltreff mars-14: aromatisk er dette er stilen på sitt beste, og smaken har en god og balansert surhet i seg som gjør den lett å drikke. et øl som kan fungere både som aperitiff og avslutning på en god aften. Med både brettanomyces og lactobacillicus, og det kjennes. Et godt øl med personlighet.

Bottle at Cardinal, 2014/03/24. Black. Sour, but not too extreme. A lot of citrus taste and body. Nice!

Mahogany, no head. Sour lambic aroma. Sour berries. Sour taste, but still balanced. Sour aftertaste.

Aurelius (3910) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Dark, ruddy cola brown-black. Sour, lambicky aroma. Waaaaaay sour. Unsweet stone fruit tones. winey. Medium to slightly heavy body. Don’t drink too fast or it’ll take your breath away. Odd and enjoyable, but not something I’d pay for. Thanks to Lance @ Proof. I bludgered this off some Ratebeerian @ Proof - perhaps mverity or others. My thanks.

Grumbo (493) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle shared at BrewDog, Bristol. 2013 Edition, 7% ABV, expensive! Black colour, minimal beige head. Sour aroma, the like of which one would normally reject were it not it’s intended style, with hints of roasted chocolate and dark fruits. Heavy sour taste, subtle sweetness in background. Chocolate comes through. I like sour, I like stout - but not sure the combo is a style (or the beer is a price) I’ll be rushing back to but that doesn’t detract from it being a good beer.

CapFlu (4364) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours headless. Nose of blackberries. Some sweetness along with the tart yet somewhat flat through the finish with a lasting club soda completion. I’m not terribly fussed about the beer, especially considering the cost. Purchased at The Strath at $19.90.

jkwood04 (3438) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 9, 2014
750ml bottle in a tasting glass. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of tartness/sourness, roasted and dark malts, and some dark fruits. Flavor a nice blend of the dark malts and sourness. Average texture. A really cool beer.

Hoprider (84) - DENMARK - MAR 9, 2014
Clear dark brown in color. Very tart nose with lots of raisins, prunes and barrel aromas. Pretty much no roasted malts so this is much more sour than stouty... This is the case with the flavour as well. Well ballanced and complex with lots of vinous and tart, sharp and zesty flavours. Nice mouthfeel - half fizzy half creamy.. Long juicy aftertaste. Good stuff!

Sigmund (4824) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2014
Shared 750 ml bottle, at Café Sara, Oslo. ABV was 7%. Black colour, low beige head. Lovely brett aroma, also oaky and roasty notes, brandied fruits, quite complex. Sour flavour, lemony notes, the roasty notes are quite subdued. Tart finish.
