What a fantastic take on the American Wild Ale! It is pushes the idea of what a sour can be, by having a dark roasted malt character of a porter, with a wine like sour finish. Nice aromas of cinnamon, chocolate, spices, and sour fruit. Body is thicker than most sours, but still feels like a sour on the palate. Rich depth of flavors, fun and complex.

Wow. What is life? A sour porter? This is truly some Gypsy Magic. 5oz. pour at the tip tap room. Pour is black with a brown head. Aroma is all sorts of berries, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is all of the above with the essential tartness and a semi creamy taste. Feel is medium carbonated. Overall, I wish I had more so I could really really dive into this masterpiece.

On tap at Whole Foods Glen Mills
Black and oily, minimal tan head.
As advertised, massive bourbon in the nose. Crazy boozy, every one of the 12% detected.
And then you sip it. Some bourbon, but the lacto is in full effect.
Nice balance between the barrel imparted flavors and the tart finish.
Not what I'd expected. The nose got better once I was drinking it , but this went from potentially disappointing to "would seek again" by the end of my first sip.
