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.

From notes: Pure, black coffee aroma. Pleasant. Though I wasn't a fan of the flavor on palate... Coffee mixed with buttermilk and cottage cheese. Strikingly sour profile mixed with coffee. Not my thing. Pass. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Pours a pitch black body just like a typical stout. Had a nice tan head and a bit of flocculent yeast poured out mid way through the bottle. Smelled of a nicely balanced roast malt and a dark tart fruit with sour. Taste is dominated by the sour but the base beer balances it well to make this very drinkable. Some earthy qualities come through as it warms. I'm not really finding any cherries. Medium bodied, well carbonated for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

9 aug 2012, tap at the Bruery. Brown/ruby, clear, no bubbles. Wow! Nose is dark and black coffee and big sour aromas. Both big, both competing, oddly it works well. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Oaky, some cobwebs, sour, with the faintest of dark coffee notes. Sour certainly overpowers stout flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drjohnrock (549) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2012
From bottle at Natifest 12. Reddish brown color, sour aroma, sour (in a good, nonspoiled way) taste with vinegar notes. Iím not up on this style but this brew is interesting.

Barreras (1265) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Pours a deep dark black color with aroma of sour rubbing alcohol. Taste is slightly acidic with a sour tinge that dissapates quickly. An okay sour, with no complexity.

jbardin (161) - New York, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle from Bruery Provisions, aged another 13 months. Yeast was clearly alive and well--overflowing with foam upon opening. Aroma is tart. Front end of flavor is tart, vinegar, back end is chocolate. This is just fantastic. It improved with age, for sure.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Deep opaque red-brown body with reddish highlights, thin beige head. Fruity nose with toast, chocolate, white grape, and alcohol. Tart, sour body. This beer apparently inspired few linguistic flourishes.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle at E9. Deep, red-black pour with a short, brief beige head which quickly transitions to a rim, with excellent retention from there. Nose is tart and dark roast. Medium-light body and light, very fine carbonation. Lemon, burnt hot dogs, green apples and a bit of pumpernickel. Finish is short and very sour with a touch of charcoal. Very interesting, but not the best sour stout Iíve had.

On draft. Bruery strikes gold imo with another ass-tingling sour beer. Up there with mother funker. They found the way to make the yeast as sour as possible.
