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.

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 don’t 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. It’s a very well made beer, and I think it’ll be really interesting in a year or so when the roast and chocolate flavors come through more. Now, it’s 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 - can’t tell if it’s brown or black - with a creamy tan head. The aroma is pretty sour - but there’s some underlying dark fruit. Med body. Foamy carb. Ok the sour isn’t mouth destroying - but it’s definitely sour. Not a bretty thing - just sort of woody sour. I’m not sure I’d identify this as a stout. It’s quite mouth bending. A surge of something resembling lactose comes forth. Then it’s gone. There’s smooth burnt malt, but it’s 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

pours a dark black hue with a small light brown head that is mostly diminishing aroma of dark fruits, yeast alcohol and citrus flavor is a chocolatey sour which is suprisingly good

Bottle from original release. Pours a black/dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is nice and tart of dark cherries, balsamic vinegar and funk, but also toasted malt, dark fruits and chocolate. Flavor follows the nose really nice sourness with the dark cherry and balsamic vinegar, with some of the funk notes, nice stout components of dark fruits, toasted malt and chocolate, with some oak notes too. The body is medium with a creamy and dry mouth feel. Overall a great Sour Stout, super interesting!
