Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a deep dark brown one with a quickly gone and light sidesticking beige top. Your can really smell the sourness on the nose here. A bit flemmish perhaps? Red sour berries and a nice sweetness combined with loads of brett and some rubber. Quite interesting and original. Great flavors also. Some paint tones, lots of acidic soaked in lime marinade berries and again tons of brett. Fresh and cool! Enjoyed. 03.05.2013

maekchu (2733) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 30, 2013
Bomber. Sour, chocolate, and farty aroma -- like two-day-old garbage. Dark, near black color. Prunes and chocolate initial / mild and more of the same in mid / finish is more or less smooth. Medium body. Very unusual aromas. Mild flavors. Doesn’t go to extremes, despite all the bacteria treatment.

Bottle. Black with lace. Tangy, oaky nose, yogurt, vinegar, hcocolate, some coffee, orange, some licorice, compost. Choco-coffee sout flavor comes out more in the mouth, with tangy orange, cola, fudge, vinegar. Nice but I feel too young.

Bottle into a goblet. Pours a beautiful black with a light brown head. No lacing. Aroma is super tart, sour, and funky with a slight roast/smokiness. Taste is surprisingly subdued compared to the aroma. Thinking a lot of the aroma comes from the barrels. Very roasty, cocoa, and soy-filled with a light tartness. This beer does have a very expansive palate though. From chocolate and coffee to citrus fruit and wood. In the argument over whether a sour stout should be classified as a sour ale or a stout this would be a stout.

phaleslu (7546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Bottled March 2013. Pours a deep brown, not quite opaque, with a minimal beige head. Aroma of berry fruits, sour funk, toasted brown sugar, oak, soy, cocoa, earth, and coffee. Flavor of oak, roasted malts, soy, balsamic vinegar, berries, cocoa, wine, and bretty funk. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky, fruity, dry, umami mouthfeel. Really complex and interesting. I have to hand it to Anchorage for doing this much to a beer and not ruining it.
