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.

The best sour I have tasted hands down. Not overly sour with a cherry backbone. Just crushable and is brownish red in color. Had this one at Jerry's in Andersonville ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is purplish black with a soapy ring. Nose is heavy sweetness, disoriented malt sugars and berry sweetness with a light leathery brett presence. Taste is awful, strong acetic acid and extreme residual sugar with tons of malt sweetness. Virtually no stout flavors other than too sweet, finish is bretty and bitter with high acid levels and a slick oily feel. Rough drain pour.

On tap at Beercraft. Pours a dark brown color without any head. Nice medium tartness and not overpowering the maltiness.

Tap. Dark almost black pour with a mocha head that dissipated quickly. Sour grapes, oak, red wine vinegar, boysenberries, tart. Sour, tarty, well balanced and surprisingly easy to drink. Very complex but straight forward. Great

olio (6231) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2014
75 cl bottle (7% abv) @ Ale&Hop, Barcelona. Bottled 22.06.2013.
Pours clear dark mahogany color with a small head. The aroma, oh the aroma... It’s tart and sourishly fruity, faint cocoa, spices and wood. Tart fruity flavor, faint coffee, cocoa, some dark berries, maybe boysenberries, faint yeast notes too. As the beer warms up a bit, the oaky and wooden notes appear. The sourness here is almost perfectly balanced with the dark berries and fruits. An awesome brew.

Smells sour. Light black in color. This was very sour, yet it just didn’t sit right with me. Made my stomach turn a little.
