Twinkle twinkle black star. In darkness, shine on! (Source: Loosely translated from the beer's label.)

  • Beer: Blackstar
  • Style: Wood Aged Dark Sour (28C. Wild Specialty Beer - 23A. Dark Ale with blueberry fermented with Brettanomyces)
  • ABV: 8.5%
  • IBU: 8
  • Brewery:
  • Look: black color, transparent, with medium formation of a off-white head;
  • Aroma: dark malt, roasted notes are present in the foreground, reminding a little dried dark fruits. Also, in the background, there is a lower presence of wood, barrel-like notes, along with a very low presence of acidic notes;
  • Taste: on its taste, the acidity is more apparent, reminding dark dried fruits. Also, a lower presence of dark malt notes, with a roasty feel, are present, lasting in the aftertaste, along with a low presence of wood notes;
  • Mouthfeel: Light-medium body, medium carbonation and a dry and long finish;
  • Overall: good dark sour. The yeast that was used on this beer really made it become a low body beer, which unbalanced the beer a little. Despite that, it’s an interesting beer.
