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.

Bottle courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours hazy black with a creamy dark mocha head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sour and malty with roasted malts, lemon juice, dark grapes, yoghurt, hay, charred wood and hints of coffee and bitter chocolate. Taste is very sour with roasted malts, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, lemon zest, hay, barnyard, dark roast coffee, unflavoured yoghurt, cocoa powder and hay. Mouthfeel is dry, very tart, mouth puckering and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, lemon juice, lemon zest, hay, charred wood and hints of barnyard. Tasty roasted thirst-quencher.

Pours black. Unfortunately, while the tartness is quite good, it's very overpowering. For sour stouts I like a little more balance and nuance. Here I can't taste the base stout at all. C+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Draft at Stag’s Head. Pours dark cloudy brownish black with a medium-sized tan head. Aromas of funky fruit and wet wood. Taste is super tart, woody, oakey, slightly roasty, citric acid, citrus juice, tart plum skins and cherry skins. The tartness is deifnitely more dominant that the roasted notes but there is a really nice baalnced between these two flavor profiles. This beer immediately reminded me of more tart version of Jolly Pumpkin Madrugada Obscura. Overall; a lovely, puckering level of tartness that lingers on the palate. Really, really tasty.

Had a glass on tap at the mikkeller bar in SF. Wow, this is crazy. Super sour and funky, doesn’t have many stout flavors except a chocolate sweetness on the finish. Delicious.

At Rockwells, Quite puckery sour. Took me quite a few sips to get used to it. Thin wine like beer and the roasted malt didn’t compete. Serving: Tap

Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a nearly opaque reddish brown, slight tan head. Aroma is pedio, cherries, plums. Body very lively, finish sweet/sour with an overall lactic character too. Very nice!

Best black sour I’ve had. Stout? Not hardly. Only a whiff. Whatever the roasted grain brings to this beer isn’t much but they do deliver a slight softness. Pours dark, dark ruby with a small, fizzy light brown head. Thin. Little barrel.
