Reddish brown and nearly flat. Sour notes dominate with very little of the expected malt character of the stout showing through.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip. 2013 edition, came in at 11% ABV.

Mostly opaque black with a slight burgundy tinge. Thick, creamy 1/2" beige head. Settles to 1/8" with some thick lacing, comes back nicely with a swirl.

Aromas of cherry pie filling, balsamic vinegar, plums, baking spices, chocolate. A little leathery funk.

Tastes of tart cherry, red wine vinegar, tangy dark chocolate, leather. Finishes bitter & sour with some red apple skin and cherry pit.

Thick, slightly viscous body. Smooth. Lingers on the tongue.

Love it. Tasty and complex, unique, rich for a sour beer. Bruery is my shit!
