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.

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.

Green apples, sour (sour!) cherries, against a dark but mild stout background. Very fine carbonation—almost lightly effervescent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Philym (985) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Appearance: Clear dark brown pour with cm thick beige/tan head. Aroma: Berry tartness, fruity, acetic, woody, vinous, subtle chocolate malt. Taste: Medium/high sourness, low sweetness and bitterness. Palate: Medium thick smooth texture, light/medium body, average carbonation, tart, astringent, vinous fruity finish, black currant like. Comments: Tasty. Probably a bit young with it being 2013 Edition.

Interesting choice to use a regular stout instead of something bigger - they made the right decision IMO. The flavor is very sour, with some subtle sweet and roasty malt flavors in the finish. Light to medium bodied. Very good beer and extra points for innovation.

2013 edition. Poured dark brown with almost no head. Nose was barnyard funk, unrippened fruit, and earthy. As soon as i tasted it, it reminded me of tart green apples. I was really surprised at how much i enjoyed this one.

Sampled at a STL tasting - Pours reddish brown with a tannish head. The aroma has roastiness, light cherry, some lactic sourness and a bit of cream. It has a medium / light body that is very refreshing and has sharp carbonation. The taste has lots of berry & cherry sourness along with some citrus, mild roast and stone fruits. The finish has a citrus / vinegar sourness. Not what I expected, but liked this a lot.

Nose is strong lacto acidity, mild oak in background. Flavor is again heavily acidic, with mild roasty/nutty accents in the background. Barrel comes through more in mouthfeel than flavor with moderate tannins that add some nice structure. Very nice but not super complex, I think one more flavor component would make this really special.

Ktwse (1975) - SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2014
Pours black with minimal, nearly non-existant, light tan head. Aroma of cherries, wood, dates, figs, raisins, light chocolate, and bretta. Taste is fairly heavy cherry tart, light chocolate and vanilla notes in the background, then a loooong sour finish. Body is light and crisp with average to lively carbonation.

Bottle shared by Nick, thanks! Pours coca cola amber with a off white head. Aroma is potent acetic, cherry, oak. Taste is really tart and cherry and oak. It’s very much like a good Flemish red. Just my style.
