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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Imaena (2081) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2013
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: OCT 26, 2014 Re-rate 9/14: Botte sample at a tasting at Leviís place. Thanks Levi. Sour, fruity, lactic, malt. Very little Stout character, if any at all. Quite rounded. Very good. 7/3/8/4/16=3.8

Bottle shared at a tasting at Tom Cís place. 2013 bottle. Dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma of oak, sour fruits, dark chocolate, roastiness, a bit of coffee, cherry liqueur notes and a hint of vinegar. Sour flavor with a bit of vinegar, lactic notes, cherries and berries, a bit of funk and faint roastiness in the finish. Medium-bodied. A bit one-dimensional but still very nice. 7/3/8/3/16=3.7

Ontape (469) - Valley Village, California, USA - OCT 26, 2013
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.
