Serving: 22 oz. bottle. Medium to dark brown pour. Interesting nose of wood, funk, and berries. Plenty of funk in the flavor with notes of brett, red wine vinegar, wood, and berries. It reminded me of a mix of an Flanders brown and Flanders red in some ways. Interesting and tasty.

Thanks to nate321 for this bottle! Pours a dark red with a small beige rim on top that leaves somewhat good lacing. Nose is of light acetone, oak, wine, moderate vinegar and light cheese. Taste is of balsamic vinegar like it should but also incredibly oaky. Grapes, cherries and light spirits (must be the cognac) make up the rest of the flavors. Both body and carbonation were medium and acidity level is moderate and refreshing. Easy drinking enough. Overall a good but not great Flanders-style ale.

Reynolds314 (3315) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle consumed at mikkeller bar. Pours dark brownish mahogany with beige head. Aroma is vinous grapes, cognac, cherries, and Brett. Nice tartness and huge barrel notes. A really nice beer.

Bottle 750ml. Pours burgundy with low beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of wine, dark fruits, red fruits, some bread, malt. Taste is of fruits, acidity, some malts, sugar. Palate: Medium body. Light-medium carbonation. Overall: Not lots of cognac features detected. Fairly good. Not intimidating.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2014
Flaske, 75 ml. Tak, Gisle. Kastanjefarver med rødlige nuancer og et lavt lyst beige skum. Syrlig, maltet, oakey. Noter af bær, grapefrugt, acetone, vådt træ, skovbund. Ekstremt mange lag. Kompleks som en god Bourgogne. Wauv!

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Dark copper body; semi-translucent with a khaki foam on top that disperses quickly to a foamy collar. Tart red apple aroma with a good amount of vinous red grape, red wine oak, & semisweet booziness. I get more wine than cognac on the nose, but that’s okay. Faint lemon, mild acidity, & a pinch of lactic acid. Light hints of vanilla, cherry, & wood. Flavor is heavier on the vinous notes, as well as the ripe cherry flavors, coming alive with a good deal of acidity & a nice bite of sour lacto. Hints of cinnamon, spicy oak, red apple, & red wine grapes that battle between lactic sourness & vinous booziness. Slightly dry finish with a lingering sweet boozy cherry & woody finish. Really enjoyable stuff.

Lukaduke (3016) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Pours a deep mahogany color with some ruby edges and two fingers of tight eggshell foam. Nose is inviting with ripe burgundy acidity, soft roasted grain, sweet pipe smoke, violets, funky old wood, caramel, dark fruits... Mmmm palate follows with a mysterious fruitiness that is both unique and delicious. Its like soft cognac soaked plums, with cherries, cranberries and pinot noir grapes added into the mix. Nice backbone of soft medium roasted malts with hints of cocoa and caramel that back up the moderate acidity and mingle with an earthy leather and mushroom nuance. Really soft and deliciously delicate sour beer !

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 20, 2014
Dark chestnut pour with a small cashew head that left a spot or two of lacing. Tart plum skin, raisin, cherry flesh, oak, vinegar, funky cheese, and even mild chocolate notes. Really complex and assertive. Not an enamel peeling sour but definitely causes the lips to pucker a bit. Ample carbonation. Delicious!
