4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Tasting at Papsø’s
Clear sour aroma. There is some mild roasted malt flavor, but overwhelmed by a very strong lemony acidity. The chocolate and roasted malt flavor is good, and well compounded by the acidity.
