Intro: A 750ml bottle, 2016 vintage, bottled on 23rd March 2016. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A clear cola dark brown with a just over one finger tanned head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Tart, plum, raisins, moderate roastiness and oak with hints of vanilla and coffee.
Taste: Tart and sour plums, oak and an interesting and nice roastiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: They’re calling it a Sour Stout, but I think its more appropriately a Dark Sour, as although signs of a Stout are there, it’s the sourness that dominates while the roastiness compliments it. But whatever you want to call it, it is well balanced and the flavours just match each other really well.
