Gin Barrel Aged Sour Dark Ale
While not a porter or stout, this traditional Trappist style ale has a strong, malty flavor born of a blend of fourteen types of malt and a color just short of black like the sky on your way home from work. Aging in red wine barrels highlights the caramel and dark, nutty fruit flavors reminiscent of figs or dates and gives this ale a tannic roundness. Try it with a hearty winter stew, or after dinner by itself or with a dark, chocolatey dessert.
Thrush exclusively uses their our own wild yeast and native mixed-fermentation cultures from Brattleboro, which develop their signature fruity, phunky, and tart flavors, giving their sour beers a distinctly Vermont taste you won't find anywhere else. They source much of their grain, hops, barrels, and fruits from farms located within 40 miles of their brewery.
