Pour is dark, black esq., with a bubbly tan head. Nose is charred wood and some marshmallow. Lacto sourness and cherry, a touch acetic in the nose. Taste follows, not really acetic. Strong carbonation, Lighter body. Less wood, more cherry. Lacto is fairly present mid palate with notes of marshmallow and vanilla.

A - Deep dark almost black beer with an slight off white head that sits just on the edges with an island of foam in the middle

S - Sweet cherry, dark chocolate, light tartness, milk sweetness, slight raspberries, slight alcohol presence. Really one of the best noses for a dark sour porter I've smelled.

T - Tart vinegar and lemon up front as well as sour cherry. There is milk chocolate and roasted malt from the porter aspect. There is some Brett near the finish as well that gives it a nice farmhouse funky aspect as well as some slight warmth and mustiness from the alcohol barrels

M - Heavy carbonation with a dry finish from the oak. Slight chalkiness from the roasted malt

O - Really an interesting good dark sour that is balanced with tartness, cherry flavor, good aspects of the porter, and a slight presence from the alcohol. Really impressed by how they managed to make this tart yet still keep the aspects of the Baltic porter
