Semi transparent dark brown beer. Good pale tan head. Crisp semi dry palate. Typically Oud Bruin semi vinegar tartness. Quite a sour - bitter finish. Refreshingly tart but not a classic Oud Bruin.

Bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks man!
The beer is dark, chestnut brown with hints of ruby. The beige head is thin and fades almost immediately. The aroma offers oak, cherries, sweet cherry juice. The flavor brings a blend of sweet and tart cherries, along with some oak. Tannic throughout. Low carbonation. Slightly puckering finish. A good sipping beer, similar to a nice wine.

Black with minimal carbonation and thin white head. Musty tobacco and soy aroma. All kinds of flavors happening here; cherry, vanilla, flank steak and chocolate liquor all rounded out nicely with a tart sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared tonight by Nick, I think. Pours a deep black with minimal tan head. Aroma is concord grape, blue cheese, rind. Taste is very grape forward with some light apricot fuzz and some cheese elements. Hay is in there too but not pronounced until it warms. The mouthfeel on this is great, again, i really dislike most imperial stouts as a rule but love stout based sours. This one is there with a more wine like texture and mouthfeel. This one was not great at first but as it warmed was rather nice and interesting. Would revisit.

On tap at Churchkey’s Night of the Living Ales event. This one poured a dark copper color with a wispy off-white head. Aroma was funky apricots, with some brandy barrel character to it. A touch of tart, funky character, apricots and brandy is in there. A nice way to end the night at this funky sour-fest.
