Bottle shared at Chrisso’s May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Thanks to Paul for this one. Aroma is dark choc, sharp raspberry fruit with sweet caramel edge and some toffee. Flavour is composed of tart, raspberry, gooseberry, dark choc, black forest gateau. Some apple skin in there as well. Dar caramel / black coloured pour with a feeting tan head and an oily texture. Palate is sharp, sweet and sour. Interesting sour stout.

Palme (3455) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
0.375l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a deep dark brown almost black looking one with a bubbly kinda dark brown top. Really strange nose. It’s really really oxidized this. Buttery caramel with Nutella and a floral perfume thing. There is something about this aroma I don’t like. Hard to put words on it. It tastes lightly infected. Sourish tones all the way. Feels gliding in the mouth with a soft carbonation level. Sour leafs with acidic coffee and old wet wood. Okay perfume in the finish. A strange strange thing this. Grows on you though. 15.01.2014

Bottle @ Chriso May 14 tasting. Pours dark brown with tan head, sweet berry aroma, quite a sweet stout with sour apples, red berries, plums, roasted dark malts, a touch of choc.. interesting.

Scopey (7075) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle, shared at Chriso. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is sweet, fruity, tangy, blackcurrant jam, treacle, fruit cordial, roasted malt and toast. The taste is tangy, roasty,earth, some acidity, tart green apple, blackcurrant, touch of bitterness and jam. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Sour stout...but was it meant to be? I am unsure.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 15.01.2014, 0,375l bottle sampled @ BBGTC tasting:
Small slightly brown bubbly shortlasting head. Aroma is extremely oxidized, butterscotch, baby lotion, caramel, chocolate, dark malts, dark sugar. Taste is kind of sour-ish, almost like stomach acid, sorrel, dark malts, citrus peel, grass, sour coffee, oak, hay. Medium kind of medical bitterness. Just weird, but kind of interesting.

ej (750) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2014
Dark brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet and perfumey. Oaky and dark dried fruits. Leathery taste with tar and a sour twang. Strange, at best. Not entirely bad tho, interesting.

ClubGonzo (4119) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a pitch black body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is licorice, coffee, caramel, some weird soapy lotion-like tones and hints of butterscotch and brown sugar. Taste is overripe raisins, sour oaky tones, stomach acid, jasmin rice and hints of sour coffee and rubber. Infected? Perhaps, but it works in a strange way. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Weird, but not only in a bad way. At least, its pretty interesting.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2013
My favorite bottle format, 37.5cl wide mouth thick green glass, bottle is bottle filled right to the cap. It pours out with deep darkness and supporting a nice looking half inch tall mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up blueberry, plums and earthy toffee with just a semblance of dark roasted malts off in the background. The taste has a soured red wine note mixing with pleasing dark roasted malts, toffee and a mild degree of sweet dark fruity esters. If you take out the sourness this would be pretty darn nice.

Opaque black beer, tidy tan head. Palate has body and is softish. Mild carbonation on the back end. Pretty sour dark malt with a trace of bubblegum. Tangy dark fruits. Touch of hop bitterness. Finishes semi dry with lingering sourness. Interesting beer! Nice dark sour!
