Served at Against the Grain Brewery

Poured dark maroon with a fine bubble head that retreats to a rim with some laces. Barely translucent. The nose is heavy on the sour yeast and bready mash. Medium tartness. The taste follows the nose nicely with dark malts and charred oak. Minor notes of plums and figs. The feel is very smooth from a high carbonation and moderate body. This is a super quality dark sour. I highly recommend this ale.

It comes in a dark mahoghany color.

The aroma is of tart cherries, sweet caramel, mostly oak with hints of bourbon.

The taste is extremely tart. Sour blackberries, raspberries, black cherries. Some acetic vinegar. There's some light caramel malt sweetness. Then onto a wonderful bourbon flavor with a good amount of oak and drying on the finish.

A light body, but lots of complexity with drinkability on this. A stellar barrel aged wild ale.
