Changeling Dark Sour Ale, our newest Smokestack Series Limited Release beer, debuts in the Greater Kansas City Area this week with other cities to follow soon!

Changeling Dark Sour Ale is an enchanting blend of sour ales aged in whiskey and wine barrels that were inoculated with brettanomyces and lactobacillus. The beer pours a deep ruby color with touches of gold at the edges of the glass. Leading with plum and toasty malt, the flavor transmutes into a soft tartness, with notes of earthiness and funk provided by brettanomyces and a touch of lingering caramel to create a delicate balance.

Component Beers:
Snow & Tell - whiskey barrels - 43%
Snow & Tell - wine barrels - 40%
Dark Saison - whiskey barrels - 10%
Flanders Red/Belgian Blonde - foeder - 5%
Imperial Stout - whiskey barrels - 2%

Aromas of sweet caramel/toffee, raisin and plum give way to notes of lemon and tart cherry punctuated by subtle oak, vanilla and char. The mouthfeel is light and spritzy. Available exclusively in 750 ml bottles, Changeling Dark Sour Ale is an excellent match for aged/smoked cheeses, roasted duck, apple smoked sausage, and beef carbonnade.

Changeling Dark Sour Ale is 7.3 ABV, 20 IBUs and 42 EBC.
