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.

LtDan (1796) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Appearance: Pours black with a red hue a foamy tan head that subsides to a small ring of tan.

Aroma: Tart red fruit, chocolate , roast and funk.

Taste: Tart red grapes, funky red wine vinegar, light roast, dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, a little rough with average carbonation.

Overall: I very very apprehensive about trying this. I like my sours sour and my stouts roasty. A sour stout sounded like something went wrong and The Bruery ran with it. The 2009 Batch of Abyss had a bottle infection that led to some unpleasant tartness. After my first sip, I knew this Sour Stout was legit. Whether or not this beer was an accident at first, I am glad it turned out so well, and that it’s been bottled again this year.

wedgie9 (2490) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Tasted on 5/14/12 from a capped 750mL bottle, big thanks to Carleton. Pours a completely opaque nearly black dark brown with an average off-white head that leaves average lace. The nose is dark chocolate syrup and coffee with some sour notes underlying. The flavor is more sour lemon, with the dark chocolate syrup and coffee bitterness in the background. The body is light with lively carbonation, and a long very tart and sour, and dark chocolate syrup finish.

750mL bottle. Poured medium-deep brown with a smoky beige head. The aroma picked up sour cherries, oak, and vinegar over some cherry meat.. burnt malty aspects were deep down and hard to find, but the sourness was definitely intriguing. The flavor found similar stuff.. cherry vinegar, oak, and tasty funk throughout.. black malty roast essence way down.. sour, funky, and cherry-y finish, accompanied by a hint of dry roast. Lighter-bodied and more sour than anything else on the palate.. clean with a good flow, but I would’ve preferred more of the stout.
