Bottle courtesy of Binnys; Figured I’d give this one a go right out of the gate - This one pours dark brown with a khaki head that has a somewhat messy retention rate - average lacing is present in this tulip. Anyway - the nose is vinegar, oak, dark fruits are prevalent. The flavor profile brings in more of the dark malty notes of cocoa and so on - while the tannins, earthy oak notes, hint of vanilla - dark fruits like raspberry and blueberry come into play fairly nicely - still - the backside of this one feels a touch muted to me - while finishing with a velvety / creamy feeling. I enjoyed this one - this is an above average dark sour, for sure.

HonkeyBra (3706) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2011
375 ml bottle from Binny’s. Dark, near black pour with the slightest bit of head around the rim of the glass. Aroma of vinegar, charred oak, toasted wood. Mild touches of caramel and cocoa, along with some notes of unripened plums, pomegranate, passion fruit. Flavor is tart, fruity, with some chocolate and lactose notes. Nice tannin presence, as well as a touch of bourbon. Flavor develops into a bit more classic sour, with nice tart black berries and raspberries showing up. Nice, Slick mouthfeel with prickly carbonation at the back of the throat. It appears that Two Brother’s sour program is turning out quite nice.

Able to purchase 5 bottles from local Binny’s. 12.7oz for only 11 bucks was a bit more than Askew but well worth it. Highly recommend this beer if you can get a hold of it. Nice malty character with a strong sour finish. Two brothers really knows how to make sours!
