Bottle at Volo. Black pour, medium beige head. Aroma is roasty, with some sharp grassy notes, and lactic, odd hoppy notes. Kinda hard to put my finger on. No sourness per se....but I’m getting some lambic/lactic funkiness. The finish is lightly bitter, more funk and roast, subtle cocoa, and coffee, with some dark prunes and figs.

mgajdaczewa (1487) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 13, 2016
W aromacie wyraźna nuta lambikowa, kwaśność, dzikość, na dodatek nutka palona, czekolady deserowej, co razem daje nuty kwaśnej wiśni. Dominuje jednak wytrawny lekki lambic. Inaczej w smaku, tam czerwona owocowość wiedzie prym, podbita przez leciutktą kawę, czekoladę, kwaskowość i nuty dzikie dopiero na dalszym planie dobrze spajają całość. Nie czuć, że jest takie mocne. Udane!

jamestulloch (3098) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle from Cornelius. Black body with a small tan head. Patchy lacing. Aroma of underripe fig, Dr Pepper and berries. Flavour of prune, Coco-Cola and a sour blackcurrant finish. Thin body with a watery texture. Fizzy carbonation. A strange beer - like a Porter blended with a Sour.

rondphoto (3625) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 26, 2016
bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Aroma of malt and dark fruit. Opaque black color, brown head that eventually drops to a full cover, bands and strands of lace. Taste is deep roasted malt that adds quite a bit of prune and fruit cake fruit before moving to a barely bittered finish that includes a little chocolate. Big, chewy, but really heavy and dense.

popery (1865) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 23, 2016
The beer is black with a fizzy light brown head. A little bit of lacing. Head mostly fizzles away after a minute. The aroma is roast and light funky sourness. Some fruit flavor in there - plum, apricot, berry. Cola, a bit nutty. Taste is moderately tart. It has the characteristic roast turned to fruitiness of a dark sour, but it’s not overly intense. More berry roast fruitiness in the taste. It’s a fairly restrained and pleasant dark sour, but the flavor just doesn’t really pull me in. There’s some chocolatey porter flavor, some caramel, that tart berry, roast, cola, a touch of balsamic vinegar. It’s not bad, but there’s too much roast flavor for me without other stuff going on. Medium to light body. Some prickly carbonation.

Mesjasz (755) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 22, 2016
Ciemno brązowy kolor, piękna beżowa piana. Lekki aromat palonych słodów, kakao i nutka funku. Smak słodki, lekko kwaśny ale bardziej w kawowym stylu. Kawy i kakao jest sporo, w tle zostaje mały kawowo cytrynowy kwasek. To w zasadzie wszystko, może jeszcze minimalna ziołowość w tle i troche alko na języku w posmaku. Fajne piwo, pije się lekko, uwagi na dosyć niskie ciało, gładką fakturę i lekkie nagazowanie.

Nice dark body. Caramel and roasted malts in the aroma. Taste is of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate.

Keg at six degrees north, Aberdeen. Pours black with a thin beige head. Aromas of fruit, berries, light chocolate. Taste is heavier on the chocolate, fruity finish.
