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.

Coffee, chocolate aroma with sour notes. Black appearance with tan head with avg head retention. Flavor contains notes of red currants. Roastiness is mild and smooth. A high level of sourness is present and lingers in my mouth well into the after taste. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Sourness level makes the beer mouth puckering dry. Overall, it's a good American sour. I would prefer a little less sourness though since it overpowers the other complexities of the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

March 21, 2015. Bottle shared by linusb, thanks Linus!
Dark brown, almost black, with a minimal off-white head. Aroma is tart dark fruits, citrus, oak, yoghurt, don’t get so much of the stout notes. Taste is tart cherries, some sweet notes from dark fruits, dry oak and faint vinegar. Finish is dry woody and fruity. Light to medium bodied, average carbonation.

March 21, 2015 - 2012 bottle from Nova. Dark pour with some head that faded quickly. Aroma was sour fruit, oak and yeast. Taste was quite tart initially and then moves into a strong oak. The oak lasts for a while and a slight amount of sweet malt comes out in the finish.

A: Cassis, chewing gum, plum T: Tart! Sweet after the tartness fall back... Nice palate, but a bit to tart for me... O: Nice sour and not what I was expecting. I expected far more roasted flavours.

Pours a thin black with no head. Aromas are milk chocolate, brownie, vanilla, oak, and lots of sour characters. Lemon, yogurt, vinegar. Flavours are bubblegum, chocolate, lemon, white wine, a bit of barrel. A fantastic and unique brew.

Appearance: pours with almost no head, the tiny head is tan and fleeting though, the beer is very black with brown hues around the edges Aroma: sour, tart, wild, I'm not picking up much of the stout aromas Taste: very sour, very tart, slight coffee hints on the finish, Palate: light mouthfeel, soft carbonation, tart aftertaste Overall: not what I was expecting but delicious, much more of a sour beer than a stout, the color is almost deceiving to the taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Joli nez de tarte aux prunes ! De beaux arômes grillés, belles notes de vanille et boisées. En bouche, attaque avec une acidité franche. On retrouve les arômes grillés / toastés du nez. Sensation fruitée, sur fond de café et vanillée. Le bois reste bien présent également. Finale longue et acide, sur la tarte aux prunes du nez...
