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.

Clarkdvm (171) - Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle in FL. Nice fruit aroma but the taste is just too tart (and I love sours). Black pour but that does not make a stout. Maybe mine was flat?

ChrisSc (249) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2014
750 ml bottle into tulip. Minneapolis. Appearance: Jet black. No head. at all. Aroma: Straight up lactic acid. Very tart nose. Nothing else. Taste: Tartness. Nothing else. Palate: Thin body, light carbonation. Long finish. Overall: A little one dimensional. It does tart very well, but there is a not a lot else to the beer. Hard to drink more than a little bit of this beer.
