Tried this one at the tasting room. Pours a dark brown to black with some ruby around the edges and a light khaki head. Aroma is sweet and sour chocolates, strangely enough, and some light vinegar that I get from the sour beers. Flavor follows with a lightly chocolates sour flavor, rather easy on the taste buds. It finishes with chocolate on the way down, but leaves a tinge of sour lingering on the to hue. Medium bodied. Very unique and they somehow made this work nicely. Would like to have this one again.

Wow--great job, Bruery! Served on tap at the opening of Barren Hill Brewery, and a great selection, Erin! Paler than most stouts, the yeasts and bacteria give this beer a taste unlike any other stout, along with a wonderful dryness which will please all sour lovers. Great beer.

Poured on draft in a snifter. Immediate tart sour bite with a spicy after taste. Dark appearance with just the right amount of carbonation. A great beer if your a fan of the style.

Bottle ($17). Aroma is very subtle and almost non existant. The appearance is deep dark brown/black. The taste is sour quince, citric acid, and faint roasted malts. You tell that there is a stout underneath all of this but it is buried behind the sour assault. The palette is highly effervescent and thin. Overall a great sour ale.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 2013 bottle. Sour oaky stout, much as advertised. Pours a dark mahogany with a small light brown head. Smell is stout malts, vinegar, oak, bugs. Taste is powerfully sour, almost enough to obscure what else is going on, but eventually oak and stout flavors break through. Not at all thin but light enough that you could drink this in the sun. Enjoyable stuff.
