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.

Joli nez de tarte aux prunes ! De beaux arômes grillés, belles notes de vanille et boisées. En bouche, attaque avec une acidité franche. On retrouve les arômes grillés / toastés du nez. Sensation fruitée, sur fond de café et vanillée. Le bois reste bien présent également. Finale longue et acide, sur la tarte aux prunes du nez...

Iznogud (1549) - CROATIA - FEB 20, 2015
On tap at The Bruery tap takeover, the Ginger Man, New York. Pours dark brown with beige head. Malts, brett, caramel in aroma. Dark fruit, brett, hint of chocolate, kind of vinous. Tart finish. Very interesting.

Pours dark brown, still. Nose is sour, leather, roast malt. Taste is super sour, blackberry, cherry, hint of sweet toffee. A most assertive and acidic, darker Flanders brown. Superb.

This is the 7.2% 2014. Slight astringent berry wine aroma. Very nice. Poured black with almost no head. Very nice blend of oak and sour cherry. Mouthful is light and the aftertaste is sour but nice.

Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2015
No head, dark brown cola pour. Toffee caramel aroma, subltle sniffs of red fruit, oak and candi. Very light stout characteristics at first sip, but the aftertaste has some caramel in store. Rich cherry flavour, medium sourness, tart indeed, some balsamic notes, melasse. Beautiful aromas with a subtle taste profile so wouldn’t call it a sour stout, more a Vlaams bruin-ish type of beer.

Aubrey (3489) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Lightish on the tongue. Tenuous stout qualities with very little roast, etc.; probably more on par with a Flanders red or brown. Regardless, it’s delicious. Rich sourness and a snappy tartness. Big cherry note with lesser notes of oak, raspberries and tobacco. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Bottle in Seattle, after the Superbowl. A nice consolation prize.. Dark cola brown. Pretty still. Oaky sweet brown malt and a touch of sour. Delicious dark tart beer. Medium body, alc and a little leather. Nice.

Swaroga (1758) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2015
This one is 7,2% abv. The 2014 edition. Is it the same beer ? Butelka 75cl. OCZY : piwo jest kompletnie czarne i pozbawione piany. NOS : na pierwszy niuch wyczuwam wyraźny aromat kwaśnych wiśni i drewna. Do tego wanilia, czarna czekolada i sporo innych, ciemnych suszonych owoców. Po wzburzeni wychodzą na wierzch aromaty świeżych i suszonych jabłek i gruszek. USTA : piwo jest pozbawione gazu i jest o dziwo całkiem wodniste ale o tłustej teksturze. Piwo jest kwaśne. Oczywiście ma dosyć bogate nuty owocowe. Do tego wanilia i palone słody robią fajne tło ale ...wszystko jest zdominowane długim i kwaśnym smakiem podobnym do cierpkiego kwasku cytrynowego. ODCZUCIA : lubię leżakowane stouty o delikatnej kwaśności. Prawdziwa poezja. Tutaj mamy do czynienia z ...kwachem o delikatnych palonych nutach. Taki Flanders z kwaskiem cytrynowym. Idę po butelkę Black Alberta. Zrobię blend. OCENA : smak : 6/10 pijalność : 6/10 styl : +1
