28-NOV-2013, bottle @Topdanmark American tasting, from Mikkeller & Friends. Dark, dark brown with red hue. No head. Aroma is red wine mostly. Oak, lemon, brett. Taste the same with quite some malty elements on top. Not exactly a stout but there are some roasted notes. Quite full body and very low carbonation. A tad tart but never really sour. Really tasty, but I miss the carbonation.

Lukaduke (2923) - Gray, Maine, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Pours a deep umber color with three fingers of gaseous khaki foam. The nose has lots of vinous funk, sour cherry, earthy roast and a touch of composted dirt. The palate follows and is a bit murky and almost taste of rust. Sour vinous fruit with a heavy roast profile that just don’t meld together harmoniously. Bit of a let down.

JBPortland (1464) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 25, 2013
750ml bottle pours black with very small thin head. Nose is tart, artificial berry, a bit medicinal. Taste is roasty dark chocolate, ash, medium tartness, fruity. Finish is a smokey dark roast coffee, sweet chocolate, tart dark cherry. Gets better as it warms, but overall it’s kind of strange.

Keg@CBC2013 Opaque black color, small brown color. Slightly tart, cellary, some toastyness. Medium-bodied. Malts, tartness, maybe some caramel. Well drinkable beer. Not too extreme and ABV is well covered.

Bjshades (156) - Iowa, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Pours a dark black with a light brown head, aromas of the Pinot noir barrels definitely come through, nice fruit notes come through with a tart finish. Very good overall

Bottle. Batch #1, March/20013. Sour pickles, straight, over powering Pedio. Roasted chocolate, puckering sourness, no hops. Not as complex as I would like it to be. Simply straightforward.

jcos (1778) - Maryland, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle shared with Dave on November 3rd, 2013.

Appearance: Pours a dark black.
Aroma: Aroma of light roasty, some fruit.
Taste:Light medium wild yeast, light roast, some dark fruit.
Palate:Medium body, quick finish.

Summary: An interesting take on a belgium dark beer, the wild yeast is lightly funky. Not my favorite of ideas, but it’s decent.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Batch #1, bottled March 2013 It’s black with a rim of tan foam and a mirrored surface, much different than the foam coming out of the bottle rather persistently. Smells of lacto, lemons, a little toasted malt, some funky resin, a little oak and some co2. Flavor is robust with coffee and soil, then there’s the lemony tart and some bitterness and harshness to it. It’s rather heavy with a low carb and a semi dry finish. I’m torn on this beer, it has the makings of a really nice sour stout, but lacks some of the subtlety I enjoy in some other examples for the malt portion. The bacterial characteristics are a little too dominated by bitterness and almost an aspirin character.
