Served semi-chilled from a 750 mL bottle and poured into a snifter. Also could be poured in a tulip or wine glass. Pours a dark purple color with literally no head. Smells are very tart and acidic, with hints of dark fruits. Carbonation is relatively light with a medium body. Taste is sweet, tart, and hints of roasted malts from the stout.The fruits are somewhat difficult to distinguish, though I have read there might be currants, sour cherries and others. There is somewhat of a chocolate or roasty flavor as well. Aftertaste is puckering and tart. Wow this stuff is incredibly sour!
Overall this is an amazing beer. I had the chance to share with a few friends, and it got rave reviews. I tried this a few weeks ago at The Bruery night at the Ginger Man, but only had a 2 oz pour in the flight. It was nice to be able to try a full glass, and I would love to get another bottle of this. I still have one more bottle of the Sour in the Rye, and cannot wait to open that. Bravo Bruery!
