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.

nimbleprop (4880) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2013
750ml bottle pours a watery, translucent mahogany amber with some clumpy white head. Nose of rhubarb, strawberry, malt, toast, grass. Flavor is very tart, grapefruit pith, rhubarb, vinegar. Acetic finish. Fairly well balanced though.

jbruner (2318) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 Pours an opaque black from the bottle with bubbly off-white head that continually effervesces. Aroma of tart sour funkiness that has some great dark fruit esters. Taste follows, super tart but an interesting chocolate and roasted make in the middle. Damn good. Bottle says 7% abv.

Johnsense (802) - - MAY 30, 2013
Dark brown pour, low carbonation. Tart candy aroma, Raspberry vinagerette come through in both taste in aroma. Also taste of Oak, Red wine, very slight roast from the stout comes through in the finish as this warms. I like what the Bruery was going for here but the sour qualities overpowered the stout. Nice thick mouthfeel!

pfriesen (112) - Richmond Hill, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Dark Brown with low carbonation, no head. Vinegar, sour plum and oak notes predominate. Not much in terms of stout character present.

JStax (2997) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a near black with a ring of white foam around the edge of the glass. Aroma is full of raisins, tart fruits, crabapples. Taste is rich, dark tartness. Sour finish. One of the most sour beers I’ve had to date.

vtafro (3437) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle. Black pour with no head. Sour and fruit like aromas with little to no malt tone. Flavor is light brett, dry tart fruit, and some hints of stout this once was.

XmnwildX12 (2078) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle share thanks to Paul, nice reddish brown pour with a bit of white head. Aroma of some cherries and a bit of vinegar/vinous character. Taste is some cherry and dark malt with some nice tartness.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours with a nose of baked sour cherry. Flavor is dark chocolate soured on flatbread. Nice mouthfeel. Good beer.

Lukaduke (2192) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours a mahogany ruby brown color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is very vinous with notes of cider vinegar, pinot noir and a roasty chocolate malt backbone. On the palate it follows suit but is slightly disjointed. Nice levels of acidity and not overly acetic... but lacking a overly complex palate... very flemish in its character with a long lingering pucker.

Another gem.... balsamic vinegar wet wood and stale coffee dominate this typically substandard bruery beer.
