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.

Pours black with a strong sour nose. Taste is tart and funky that finishes with a little smoke from the stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at Sour Beer Summit at Roscoe’s. Black color with tan head. Intense lactic aroma of sour cherry. Taste is dark malt, lactic sour, and black cherry. Sour, dark, and surprisingly smooth.

Bottle. Pours black with a nice thick creamy head that leaves beautiful lacing. Taste is overpowering SOUR. Nothing else comes through, just sour. Medium to heavy body, average carbonation.

Aromas of dark dried fruit, black cherry, plum, raisin, and cassis. Black with dark ruby highlights. Dry, tart, and with a hint of cocoa. Medium bodied, crisp, acidic, and finishes pretty clean.

From a 750 into my Michelob chalice. First time I’ve used this chalice and it won’t be the last. Bottle is the 2012 vintage so it’s about a year in the bottle. Pours a porterish brown. Couple inches, tops, of white frothy head and zero lacing. LOTS of fizz in this one. Light mouthfeel. Like a porter. Very dry too Nose is very tart and consists mainly of grapes and chalk. Taste is also overwhelmingly sour. Very mild depth of flavor. Good amount of red wine, chalk, green grapes, sweet tarts, lemon, lime and a bunch of other sour things thrown in. I did like this one. Very sour but easy to drink with a light mouthfeel. From my buzz I got going, seems to be bigger than the 5.7% on the bottle. Worth a try but I’m not buying again. Bruery stuff just aint worth the coin.

On tap at Ashley's. pours an almost black red. Subtle sour aroma. Pretty incredible. Hard to explain, more sour than stout but has that nice stout base. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap and dispensed to a small snifter at Warren’s Ale House in Wheaton, IL., displaying an opaque, black/brown hue, with a decent layer of tan head froth that reduced to a thin ring, and left a few strands of lacing. The nose was dark fruit, tartness, and vinous characteristics. The flavor was full blown sourness, dryness, and near acridity. No possibility to detect any roastiness in either phase, yet I kept on drinking. Sensed a hint of vanilla toward the finish. More or less a one hit wonder for me.

Bottle. Black pour with a medium but disappearing head, and a very interesting aroma of sour cherries and roasted malt. Flavor is surprisingly sour with hints of tart cherries and lemon with some roasted flavor notes almost completely hidden away. Finish is sour, and it lingers quite a while. Overall I think this is decent but not interesting, and I was looking for something interesting in this. Not one I need to try again.
