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.

No retention and no lacing. Smells of chocolate, wood chips and grapes. Tastes like tart grapes and sweet stoutieness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great aroma. But tastes like grape juice. Really tart. Totally a sour but was under porters and stouts. Meh.

Pour is deep brown with slight red tints and a medium tan head. Aroma and flavor of sour mash, cherries, oak chips, and slight roast. The stout base is almost completely overpowered by the souring. Good.

Bottle at Mikkeller Bar SF. Pours a pitch black with no head. Wow nose is tart as fuck - loads of damp wood, acid, dark fruits and earthy tones. Taste is more of the same with brown sugar sweetness and vinegar. So sour. So fuking good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a black color with basically no head. Aroma of tartness from the wild yeast with roasty undertones and slight hint of oak. Flavor is dominated by the sour tartness. The roasted flavors of the stout are barely present in the palate. The do blend nicely tho. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of my favorite beers. A hard hitting, puckering sour that finishes with a faintly sweet, roasty flavor of a stout. A truly unique beer that deserves to be tried by everyone.

"Although it looks pretty dang black, the stout portion of this beer definitely plays a supporting role to the astringent lemony mouth-puckering tartness. Verynice :) Had a small sample, will revisit when i destroy my 750!"

Pours black with a fairly low tan head. Aromas of red currant, cherries, roasted malts, raspberries, slight chocolate and nutty notes. Taste is red currant, roasted malts, funk, chocolate, raspberries, cherries, slight almond tones. Mouthfeel is quite dry and tart with medium carbonation.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 Bottle cheers to Palo. Glad to finally crack one of these. Loads of damp wood and earth beyond the heavy acetic and vinegar driven sourness. It’s absolutely tarty as hell with loads of acid, vinegar, dark fruits, brown sugar and woodiness. The name says it all. Great beer

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Blackish pour, light tan head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is very sour with funk, barnyard action, also lesser stout notes such as chocolate and caramel. Lowly hopped, not much for roast, very sour.
