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.

Provisions version....Been fearful Dark leathery brown with some tam foam. Smells of molasses with a sour cherry and some lemon skin. Flavor is a nice, well less stout, but more brown ale with a good amount of clean plumy, lemon, lactic and cocoa, coffee, some vinegrated character. I’m really impressed with how much I like this. Fuck. Nice medium bodied with sharp and resonant carb with a dry finish. Nice beer. Really nice beer. Serving type: bottle 11-11-2012

SlovakSniper (3894) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
Le classique look d’un bon verre de Kik Cola.  Cette version à 7% dégage des parfums qui finissent par m’intéresser.   J’y trouve en rafale du caramel, des petits fruits rouges, du vin aigre, des notes rôties, du chocolat et des microbes.  En bouche,  c’est légèrement autre chose.  Beaucoup de notes acides.   C’est agressif.  Ça manque de politesse.  Le vinaigre écrase tout. Au palais, se manifeste un corps qui fait le style.  En finale, c’est ma langue qui saigne et c’est mon estomac qui commande tout un flacon de TUMS Ultra 1000 qui, au demeurant, est casher et faible en sodium. Lourdement surévaluée. This is a #$@₩ joke.

Oh lord I had this baby out of the big 25.4 oz bottle. Pours out a dark brown/black with little to no head. The smell really comes across as a wine. And the taste is so sour. It really smells and tastes like a super tart wine. Sour grapes come out a lot with each sip. But you also get hints of the oak barrel coming through. The sour aftertaste lingers for a while. If you’re a fan of super sour stuff go for it! But in my humble opinion I’m glad I tried this one. It’s very unique, but not one I’ll be revisiting in the future.

2012 vintage. Almost black. Fizzy head. Aroma is rather subtle. Flavor is deeper. Fruity, wood, barnyard. Medium body. Tart, nice overall tingle, back of throat and tongue, lasting slow tingle. Some roastiness blended in there. Really nice.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3056) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 24, 2013
7% part of the 3000 yen tasting set at CBB. Winey, barrel, oak, vanilla in the nose with some mild dark malt notes on a brownish-black pour with a minimal head. Exceptionally tart, vinegary, sour & fruity with some berry or cherry notes. Quite a subtle beer meant for sipping, solid but not my favorite tonight.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Serving: Draft at Leesburg Brewing Company. It pours a very dark brown color with virtually no head. Winey, oaky, sour nose. Nice almost lactic sourness up front with medium oak and vinous notes on the back end. Lighter on the palate than you expect based on the color. Tart, dry finish. Good stuff.
