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.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a darker brown hue with a thin head that fades to leave as light wisp and thin halo.

S - Aromas of sweeter malts, caramel, cherry, vanilla, vinegar, tart, barrel and bourbon. Vegetative, almost swamp like...uh...

T - Taste is sour, tart, chocolate, cherries, vinegar, sour tart chalky. Some off vinegar and funky chocolate notes, really off flavors, I don't mind the sourness but it does not go with the flavours at all.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, slick, flemmy.

O - Overall this beer was like an oude bruin, a very poorly executed one. The bourbon, sourness, and flavours don't go together at all

Split with rudzud.

Light fizzy slight fluffy head, hints of legs very dark brown almost black color.

Nose brings soured brown malts, tartness, brown sugar and caramel brown malts, sour cherry vinegar, plenty of oak, toasty buttery with mild bourbon note, little booze tingle.

Taste brings sour brown malts, quite tart, soured candy, brown sugar, caramel, weird sour patch kids like a terrible brown one, sour cherry ave acetic acid, vinegar notes, and a weird spoiled sour chocolate thing. Little booze warmth, with mild toasty buttery oak, mild bourbon, Heather is non existent. Finish is sticky flemmy, sour mild vinegar and acetic acid, sour cherry and brown sugar.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, syrupy and tart vinegar acetic acid, light booze.

Overall meh, not so great.
