I bought 6 of them, 4 were excellent, one was not good at all, one still sits in the fridge. You may have had a bad one.Madrudgada Obscura from Jolly Pumpkin is an excellent Brett stout, it may have other bugs in it also.I knew I had one from Jolly Pumpkin. It had some acetic notes as well as the bret. I didn't care much for it. bouef
+1 on the excellence of Madrudgada Obscura. I like it very much. Jolly Pumpkin's certainly got a handle on the wild stuff. Jeff's may have been a bad example.... or it may be just a question of personal taste.
Sour stout is not a common occurrence, which may speak to many people sharing Jeff's feeling towards them. On the other hand, I like them. I'm sure Jeff recalls the group effort we made here in FL for the Orlando AHA NHC. We brewed an RIS for the commemorative beer. It went sour in the barrel & we rebrewed & did some blending. I've still got a few put away, and break one out once in a while and really enjoy it.
Thanks for reminding me, Mark
I just pulled one out of storage and into the fridge.
I like sour beers and I've had Madrudgada Obscura more than once. I just didn't think it was a well-blended flavor.
(btw why do brewers chose to name their beers something you can barely pronounce?)
