Project Opus is our collection of aged sour beers. Don’t let the black color of this barrel aged beer fool you. The complex sour notes will brighten your palate as they pair with the dark malt character.

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!

jstraw (1960) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Black with fair, creamy, tan head / Complex, delicate nose of cocoa, orchard fruit, oak, and a hint of funk / Light to medium body, sour, with good malt balance and tart finish / Flavors of chocolate, dark cherries, apples, plums, pomegranate, caramel, (restrained) oak, and some nice barnyard / Another fine sour following Askew. 2 Bros is hitting stride.

Lukaduke (2937) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle thanks to adnielsen ! Pours a deep burnt umber color with a thick khaki head that sticks around for the life of the beer. The nose is cherry cola, some dark plum and some barrel funk. The palate is berry heavy with some nice cherry cola acid and caramel malt backbone. Bright acidic, funky, dry finish... Damn this is an interesting sour. Well done.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2011
350ml bottle from Binny’s BG. Pours dark hazy brown with red tints and nice tan head. Aromas of oak, lightly roast malt, plums, and some acidity and tartness. Flavors of roasted malts, chocolate, grape juice, wood, and some sour tartness. Finishes tart with some nice mellowing roasty notes. I bought this thinking it was going to disappoint, but I thought this was extremely solid. Nice take on the style IMO. Could have drank another bottle easily. Easily one the best beers this brewery has produced.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2011
375ml bottle purchased at west lakeview. not too sure about this but askew wasn’t all that bad so here goes.... a small pop unleased after the cork is removed which then yielded a darker than garnet plum brown mostly opaque and almost stout-like in appearance. a fluffy lasting medium tan head rests on top... chalky chocolate malts interface first with subdued marshmallow, soured to be sure with grapey and dark fruit accents throughout. not too bad thus far... flavors continue on a similar wavelength but the chocolate and sweeter notes take a backseat to the soured lactic dark fruit qualities. grapes, raisins, figs take precedent. the mouthfeel is full and creamy, almost pillowy while adding a light chalky consistency throughout. no acidic bite or vinegar feel, rather kind of earthy and muted but that works better for a darker base beer such as this. count me a fan.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Sour aroma, dark fruit. Good flavor, fairly sour. Acidic, yet fairly mellow. Well done beer.
