kaips1 (64) - Kentucky, USA - NOV 20, 2012
on tap at st sour in louisville. this started out smelling like a freshly opened bottle of wine and as it warmed up the stout aromas of chocolate and toffee. this poured a dark brown almost black. the tastes of wine, oak, chocolate and some semi sweet sour all wash through the sip. thve feel is just light enough to make you forget that this is 1/3 stout. overall this is a good beer, very different than almost any other beer you may have and if you enjoy sours then this is a must just for the tick and experience.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 19, 2012
Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Pours an unclear and dark brown beer with no head. The aroma is malt, roasted and caramel. The flavor follows the nose with acidic notes. The palate is refreshing with sweetness. Overall a good beer.

Chipalsa (1306) - Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2012
330ml Bottle
Appearance - Deep red body, choppy lacing
Aroma - Grapes, wood, leather, vanilla, sour candy
Taste - Burgundy, vinous, sour cherries, tart

This was an interesting find, and it really did taste like Burgundy with some nice sour attributes. The tart was short-lived and finished nice and dry with hints of oak.

MotherBrother (649) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2012
Tap @ BBF 12. Pour murky brown, with a small head. Aroma of (coffee(?)), sour cherries, slight funk, slight brett. Taste is quite sour, with some faint sweet notes. Average body, with a slight fizzy carb. This is a little weird, but grew on me during the glass.

abemorsten (2491) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
From tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. ABV is 10% according to my notes from the beer menu at the booth. Body is dark like coca cola with a creamy tan colored rim. Dried fruits, raisins and wooden notes like a fruity liqueur on the nose. In the mouth it’s fruity, acidic and citrusy. Medium bodied and flat and a mouth feel of grapefruit juice. Short end.
