Bottle shared at Proof. Aroma of sour cherries, plums, caramel, oak and rotten citrus. Light acetone and strong lactic acid in flavor with dark fruits and oak. Pickering finish. Not bad.

__Rb81 (211) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle at home (batch 632). Pours very dark red brown with a small, fizzy, head that disappears quickly. Sweet, sour, aroma of dark fruits, wood, and sour red wine. Very sour taste with a fruity, sour, dry aftertaste. Also a bit of a nasty solvent, nail polish remover like, undertone. Perhaps unlucky with the bottle just starting to go bad. I think it can be very good. I really should give Freddy a second chance.

jayzz (341) - Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Has a plum wine aroma where you can actually smell the sour, and a sweet long finish that reminds me of my favorite wine. Excellent, and easy on the palate. Has a fizzy head, and a dark red brown color.

Taste: Acidic and a balanced sweetness. Vinous, sour, oak and yeast.

FatPhil (9369) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2013
330ml bottle - Shared by Chris - thanks!
Initially a nice wood glue aroma, nice dard treacly caramel aspects, some spiciness, almost clove, slightly christmassy. Clear, has some rubberiness. Sharp acidic retronasals. Even more acidic as you swallow. Clear, more rubbery. Cloudy, less so but more tart and sour. Middle glass had the best balance. Slight ashiness or ashtray aspects detract a little.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2013
In short: A very harsh, oaky-tannic, semi-sour and acetic fruity dark ale. Meh.
How: Bottle 330ml, age unknown, found in the cellar, certainly over one year of age.
The look: Very dark burgundy (near black) body topped by a small beige head leavin very little lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is moderately acetic acid, dark fruits, oak. Taste is blackberris, earthy grainy malts, tart dark grapes, past due-date cheap red-wine, blue cheese, oak tannins, moderate acetic acid presence, fruits seeds, astringent finish. Body has a rough texture (some sawdust sensation) with minimal carbonation. Sourness level is medium, acetic acid is bothersome but not overwhelming, oak tannins are very aggressive and create a rough finish. Overall a harsh beer that is not easy to drink. Meh. And whoever is making my voodoo doll type beer ratings every time it drinks a beer please stop it, it is disturbing and pathetic.
