Notes/Commercial Description:
Soroboruo is a backwards take on a Scotch ale. As Scotch ales are typically known for big, toffee-like malt and subdued yeast flavors, Soroboruo allows our wild yeast and bacteria to shine full-heartedly, adding a delightful tartness, balanced by the soft floral notes of the heather flowers. A most unusual and quite exciting take on a sour ale.

A: poured into a tulip to a deep brown with a half finger of off white head that has little retention and lacing
S: smells of sour cherry and caramel with some wood and vanilla
T: taste is tart up front, some oak tannins, slight caramel, oak, sour cherry, hint of bourbon. swallow is a little alcohol, more barrel, with some lingering caramel and smoke.
M: this beer sits a little heavy on the palate with soft carbonation and a dry finish
O: It's an oddity but it kinda works. It isn't a sour bomb and it isn't a mess either. Enjoyable in an odd way.

Thanks to GRG1313 for giving me this one.

Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, wood, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, wood, earth, and slight bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is solid for a unique sour, but I am not really getting any Scotch barrel aged characteristics in the aroma or flavor.
