750mL bottle poured into taster
Pours an inky black with a thin toasted brown head resting on top. Fades out quickly with a cloudy film on top.
Stark sourness in the nose with black cherry skin, dark fruit and oak. Hints of toasted dark malts and chocolate along with some acidic notes.
A bite of sour right up front with black cherry, raspberry and currants. Acidic and slightly vinegary (but not offensive) with a soft tempering of dark malts. The roasted chocolate and oak tones are pretty understated, but definitely attempts to balance the sourness. Finishes tart and funky with dark fruit.
Lighter medium body, higher carbonation, dry and lingering on the tongue. I've had sour stouts before and hated them, but this was pretty tasty.
