PhillyCraft (7602) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle care of Dad, pours black with small mocha head. Not normally into dark brett beers but this one was solid. Notes of dark plum, cherry, oak, syrup and lightly acidic funk. Never became overwhelming.

Liked this better than the sour barrel aged dark ages, which was good but a little too strong w too much going on. This is more straight forward. A farmhouse stout with nice roasted and dry farmhouse qualities.

Pours black with a small to medium light brown head. Looks fairly heavy. Head is a touch fizzy but holds up a decent blank of creamy foam for a bit. Little lacing. Sour, fruity roast flavors in the aroma. There’s a light, sorta metallic twang to it. A bit of chocolate. The sour fruitiness is not quite right for me. The cherry and chocolate combination is good, but something smells a bit off, maybe some booze coming through. Interesting on the palate. This is pretty heavy for a stout with so much sour fruitiness. There’s chocolate and roast upfront with a thick sour cherry note and some odd residual caramel malt heft, though the beer isn’t really sweet. Fairly strong oak flavor. Medium to light sourness but it’s a bit muted by the strength of the beer. It’s a heavy sour with lots of wood. I can’t say that I like it all that much, but it’s interesting. It’s just absolutely full of roast fruitiness. Too much for me. Hard to rate. Despite some curiosity, I don’t really want to drink it.
