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.

BoostIPA (1209) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle from craftshack. Pours a thin looking dark brow with almost no head. Aromas of blackberry yogurt, dark sour fruit. Taste is very dry and sour. Flavors of seedy blackberry jam, sour kefir, some lemon zest. Very bright sour notes coupled with some dry roast makes this a pretty deep and complex little beer. At a fair price point, I might add. Finishes with a lasting sourness and a light roast. Pretty puckering. I like this a lot.

mcberko (6032) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sour dark fruits, some light roast and cocoa. Flavour is very lactic and puckeringly sour - very tart and sour, overly sour. Way too lactic and sour for me. Out of balance, sour and vinegary. Another untasteful Bruery vinegar bomb.

mds (2200) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a brown-copper colour with no head. Smells of leather, raisin and generally sour-like. Flavour is dominated by sourness. There’s nothing that really tastes of stout at all. Enjoyable. 2014-03-29

Holmen1 (2306) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2014
Fra flaske på Cardnaltreff mars-14: aromatisk er dette er stilen på sitt beste, og smaken har en god og balansert surhet i seg som gjør den lett å drikke. et øl som kan fungere både som aperitiff og avslutning på en god aften. Med både brettanomyces og lactobacillicus, og det kjennes. Et godt øl med personlighet.

Bottle at Cardinal, 2014/03/24. Black. Sour, but not too extreme. A lot of citrus taste and body. Nice!

Holmen2 (689) - NORWAY - MAR 24, 2014
Mahogany, no head. Sour lambic aroma. Sour berries. Sour taste, but still balanced. Sour aftertaste.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Dark, ruddy cola brown-black. Sour, lambicky aroma. Waaaaaay sour. Unsweet stone fruit tones. winey. Medium to slightly heavy body. Don’t drink too fast or it’ll take your breath away. Odd and enjoyable, but not something I’d pay for. Thanks to Lance @ Proof. I bludgered this off some Ratebeerian @ Proof - perhaps mverity or others. My thanks.

Grumbo (525) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle shared at BrewDog, Bristol. 2013 Edition, 7% ABV, expensive! Black colour, minimal beige head. Sour aroma, the like of which one would normally reject were it not it’s intended style, with hints of roasted chocolate and dark fruits. Heavy sour taste, subtle sweetness in background. Chocolate comes through. I like sour, I like stout - but not sure the combo is a style (or the beer is a price) I’ll be rushing back to but that doesn’t detract from it being a good beer.

CapFlu (4476) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours headless. Nose of blackberries. Some sweetness along with the tart yet somewhat flat through the finish with a lasting club soda completion. I’m not terribly fussed about the beer, especially considering the cost. Purchased at The Strath at $19.90.
