NOTE: Described at the brewery as a "Sour Oyster Stout". I'm not certain I categorized it most appropriately in the listed options.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at the Three Palms tasting room. Served in a snifter glass.

A: Pours a nice, rich dark brown, nearly opaque. Forms a one-finger light tan head with medium retention and low visible carbonation.

S: Big acetic sourness, mild roasted malts, some cola character, and rich sweet-n-sour.

T: Acetic acid but doesn't seem overly vinegary. Briny, sour, some restrained funk. Roasted malts are there but fail to stand up to the sourness. Sour and briny in the finish.

M: Modestly thin body, low carbonation sensation, alcohol well-concealed.

O: A different, style-defying beer. Tasty and enjoyable, but not something that I'd have several glasses of. Worth a try for sure though.
