COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap. Dark almost black pour with a mocha head that dissipated quickly. Sour grapes, oak, red wine vinegar, boysenberries, tart. Sour, tarty, well balanced and surprisingly easy to drink. Very complex but straight forward. Great

olio (6106) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2014
75 cl bottle (7% abv) @ Ale&Hop, Barcelona. Bottled 22.06.2013.
Pours clear dark mahogany color with a small head. The aroma, oh the aroma... Itís tart and sourishly fruity, faint cocoa, spices and wood. Tart fruity flavor, faint coffee, cocoa, some dark berries, maybe boysenberries, faint yeast notes too. As the beer warms up a bit, the oaky and wooden notes appear. The sourness here is almost perfectly balanced with the dark berries and fruits. An awesome brew.

Smells sour. Light black in color. This was very sour, yet it just didnít sit right with me. Made my stomach turn a little.

Green apples, sour (sour!) cherries, against a dark but mild stout background. Very fine carbonation—almost lightly effervescent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Philym (975) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Appearance: Clear dark brown pour with cm thick beige/tan head. Aroma: Berry tartness, fruity, acetic, woody, vinous, subtle chocolate malt. Taste: Medium/high sourness, low sweetness and bitterness. Palate: Medium thick smooth texture, light/medium body, average carbonation, tart, astringent, vinous fruity finish, black currant like. Comments: Tasty. Probably a bit young with it being 2013 Edition.

Interesting choice to use a regular stout instead of something bigger - they made the right decision IMO. The flavor is very sour, with some subtle sweet and roasty malt flavors in the finish. Light to medium bodied. Very good beer and extra points for innovation.

2013 edition. Poured dark brown with almost no head. Nose was barnyard funk, unrippened fruit, and earthy. As soon as i tasted it, it reminded me of tart green apples. I was really surprised at how much i enjoyed this one.

Sampled at a STL tasting - Pours reddish brown with a tannish head. The aroma has roastiness, light cherry, some lactic sourness and a bit of cream. It has a medium / light body that is very refreshing and has sharp carbonation. The taste has lots of berry & cherry sourness along with some citrus, mild roast and stone fruits. The finish has a citrus / vinegar sourness. Not what I expected, but liked this a lot.
