Notes/Commercial Description:
Divergence is Bourbon Barrel Aged Sour Porter. This porter was barrel aged on brett for 8 months and blended onto dry processed coffee post barrel aging. This beer's flavor is a beautiful blend of a soft tartness and maltiness with a hint of coffee on the end.

Poured from the bottle into a Wicked Weed glass. It is black as night with a nice off white head. The head last a little, then slowly dies down with some lacing. You smell tart cherries, some of the barrel, and a hint of coffee. At first sip, you don't get much coffee. But as it warms, you get more coffee and some chocolate. Real smooth and sour.

A: pours black with a finger of tan head that fades into a frothy ring with almost no lacing.

S: roasted malts with sweet chocolate and creamy coffee aromas following. There are hints of vanilla and oak. Smells quite nice, though the Brett isn't really noticeable here.

T: roasted malts with semi-sweet chocolate up front before some light and tart fruit flavors. There are some musty barnyard flavors before a finish that is slightly charred and tart.

M: medium-thick body with medium carbonation, this beer is fairly drinkable, but could use a little creamier body.

O: a good beer, overall, and quite unique. I'd like a bit more presence from the Brett, but what's there is nice.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a stemmed tulip, the beer is jet black, with a ruby highlight and an off-white, fluffy head. Nose of rich coffee, chocolate, and molasses, with a tart fruit highlight. Flavors are rich berry and cherry sweet forward, with a subtle coffee and chocolate backbone. Very rich and sweet. Smooth, light, and dry in mouth, with a bittersweet and fruity aftertaste. The finish is slick and slightly oily, with an effervescent fruit linger.
