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.

Thanks to Jay for letting me have the latter part of a 750 ml bottle that went flat. Beggars canít be choosers. Dark brown color. No head, just a few bubbles. Couple bits of sediment. Woo! This tastes delicious! Super-tart, yet not overwhelmingly sour. Tart in a good way! First sip really wakes up the palate. It overwhelms the aroma, though. Only a faint bit of roastiness and chocolate in the nose. Long tart aftertaste is pleasant, though, with a slight bit of chocolate at the end. My bottle is flat, of course, but there is a sort of viscosity in the finish. Pretty impressed, considering the condition of the bottle

Tap at The Bruery for RBSG. Poured a clear, deep black. Weak foam. Nose is essentially all acetic acid. Taste is very nice- Flemish red style acetic, oak, and red wine blend. Berry skin and wood tannic. Tangy, rich. Acetic is not too overwhelming. Not too hot. Just be ready for the vinegar twang. Overall not too abrasive. I always enjoy a good oude brune/Flemish red. Needs some lactic balance.

Draught at the brewery with RBSG. Clear, deep brown liquid with medium tan head. Aroma of lemons, roasted malt, pumpernickel and some light oak. Taste is dry and medium sour with notes of lemons and coffee. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Sample at the Pints For Pelotonia charity tasting on 07/21/12: The beer pours black with a bit of brown around the edges and a medium foamy tan head that diminishes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, berries and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of tart fruit, roasted malt, oak and yeast. The finish is tart with a lingering roast malt and berry aftertaste. Unique and enjoyable beer overall.

Bottle: pours mahogany blackish brown with faint tan ring. Nose let's you know that woody sourness is on its way. Some chocolate, oak, lime, Brett, subtle roast on the nose. More dark fruit sourness, lime, oak on the palate. Tongue puckering sourness and long finish. Stands up to Russian Rivers finest. Well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml to oversized snifter. Looks decent; black with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes good! I donít pick up any stout notes, but the base seems to provide some balance to what would otherwise be an overly sour beer. Sour and cherries is what sticks out. Mouthfeel is puckeringly good. I like this beer!

dark mahogany. Not much aroma of note. Little bit of roast flavor, but mostly sour all on the backend. Itís a very well made beer, and I think itíll be really interesting in a year or so when the roast and chocolate flavors come through more. Now, itís almost like the two flavor characters are fighting, and then the sour wins in the end.

Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very dark - canít tell if itís brown or black - with a creamy tan head. The aroma is pretty sour - but thereís some underlying dark fruit. Med body. Foamy carb. Ok the sour isnít mouth destroying - but itís definitely sour. Not a bretty thing - just sort of woody sour. Iím not sure Iíd identify this as a stout. Itís quite mouth bending. A surge of something resembling lactose comes forth. Then itís gone. Thereís smooth burnt malt, but itís not on the main menu. Definitely some oaky astringency. This stands up to the best Cascade sours IMHO.

Sour grape nose. First sip, tart lime. Nice carbonation, sour grapes, some minor acidity. Warming palate. Balance. Black color, coke float head. Palate dominator. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
