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.

Dark beer with brown hues when held against the light. Very small beige head. I am trying hard to get into sour beers, but this one just doesnít do it for me. Rotten citrus peel nose with all the sour funk notes that make my entire head pucker when I smell it. Nasty rotten fruit tastes with moldy hay and composted grapefruit tinds. This is just hard to get down.

Pours dark red with tiny beige head. Some particles. Aroma: strange aroma that reminds me off... tuna(?!), along with slight roasted malt. Fortunately, it tastes otherwise, surprisingly sour (with some roasted). Dry finish.

On tap at Devils Den for Sourfest, 11 bucks for a 12 oz. Pour is pitch black, light if any beige head. Lacing wasnít present on this one. Softly carbíd, medium bodied. Aromas are insanely sour and acidic with berries, currants, roasted malts, wood, and a faint amount of chocolate. Taste is very tart and funky with some berries, grapes and cherry flavors up front, woody earth in the middle, and a light roasty cocoa finish. Barníd the f out big time with a puckery close.

Draft. Pretty much black, small beige edge head. Aroma of slightly sour cocoa and subtle coffee. Taste is prominent yet soft sour plums, dates, port wine. Delicious.

Bottle 750ml. Pours dark brown with medium beige head. Some lacing. Particules float in the beer. Aroma: roasted malt, sourness. Taste: very sour. Overall: Hard to rate, the sour caracter taking all the place taste-wise. Not my favorite from The Bruery (I would even say a deception, considering my expectations/price of the bottle).

Pours a dark brown with a nice cocoa head. Nose is the amazing... Tart, acidic.. Really well done. Taste is the same profile, just great. Feel is sour, with straw, barnyard vibe. Overall, a great beer, can't believe it's 5%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

Bottle (750 ml). Dark brown with a small creamy beige head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, tuna(?), brett, wood and dark fruits. Taste is very tart (almost overwhelming) with roasted malt, dark fruits and wood. Very acidic mouthfeel. Palate isnít creamy as I expected of a "stout". This is a weird beer! Iím happy that Iíve tried it but Iím not a fan of this hybrid (sour/stout) style. The "sour" aspect take almost all place but I donít know if it would be better with a "better" balance.

100th rating!! Dakís party. Incredible aromas of sour, funky yeast, roast, chocolate. Fun balance of sour, vinegar flavors & cocoa, coffee, roasts malts. Very complex! Glad I finally was able to try this.

Pours like an imperial stout, dark as night with not much head, but a nice tan halo. But the aroma is all sour. You can smell the tartness, like shocktarts right off the nose, and it carries through into the taste! Big, sweet tart vinuous taste without being vinegary. Its a bit of a one-note affair, but itís one hell of a note. Not much flavor lasts on the tongue, but a bit of the dryness certainly does.

Pours jet black with a paperthin mocha head. Aroma of sour lactic acid. Taste follows, sour, cherries and roasty malts. Really nice complex sour ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
