4.39/5 rDev +0.5%

A- Pours a rusty brown auburn with a quickly dissipating off white head. Beer looks great
S- As soon as I popped this I could smell some oaky lactic funk, kind of oud bruin esque. After I pour this bad boy out, there's toasted nut, molasses, some rum heat, slight funky twang in the background
T- Taste is initially oud bruin esque, oak tannic tart cherry note, then the carbonation begins to kick in and dries out to a rummy oak profile with molasses, oak, and dark fruit that initially leaves you wanting more, but then right on the finish, a slight rum heat comes out. Is reminiscent of a dark and stormy with lime, but instead of lime, this has some mild lacto balancing things out.
M- sharp pricky carbonation that gives the beer an excellent complimentary dryness, making a high abv sour quite drinkable
O- Right now, this beer is drinking great, showcasing a great depth of character without being too overwhelming in any certain area. There is definitely some room for growth of the lacto character, but I feel this beer is ready to drink now. Fantastic sour brown ale.
