(En fût à STOUT Hollywood): Cerises noires, pointes acétiques, éclats de chêne et une présence grasse mais délicate des bretts. La présence en bouche est soyeusement entière, beaucoup de fruits rouges et de bois dans la finale sèche également.

Draft at Tiger! Tiger! Pitch black with a tight, creamy tan head with fantastic staying power. Aroma is mostly balsamic acidity and cherries with subtle underlying roast. Very smooth, well-incorporated flavor profile: tart cherries, vinegar, vinous oak, green apple, cocoa nibs, blackberry jam. Coffee only shows up just after the finish, as a kick of soft, nutty beans. The body is outstanding, delivering the flavor in a creamy, pillow-soft package. Would be far less of a beer without that enjoyable mouthfeel.

On tap at Monk’s Kettle. Sharp tart sour cherry aroma. Harsh and sharp taste, but nice. Dark malts and cherry. Very good.

[ Keg ][ 3oz ][ Brewbies Festival ][ $1 ][ Flute Taster ][ 2.14.15 ]
>> On tap as "El Prieto, sour barrel aged brown ale aged in American Oak barrels 8.6%". Seems like it could be a new entry, but rating it here. Clear deep red pour with excellent lacing for style. Flemish red nose with acetic acid, balsamic vinegar. Taste is softer than expected, lightly salty, flash of balsamic vinegar, mouth watering. Quite good. Should be under Sour Red/Brown for style.

Dark beer some dark raisins plum. Sourness comes through on first sip. Pretty enjoyable balanced with different sour characteristics. Had a while ago. Got from my notes.

2/12/12 notes: Nose of cherry, apple cider, dusty straw. Flavor builds, aceto/vinegar and soil late. Soft body, low CO2. Intriguing, if average sour.
