Tasted on 7/12/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Belmont Station. Pours almost completely black with an average tan head that slowly settles into a collar of lace. The nose is prune with coffee, dark chocolate, roast, and a nice red wine vinegar and citrus sourness. The flavor is the same, with all of the flavors nicely melded, and the sourness not really kicking in until the finish. The body is medium and tannic with average carbonation and a long roasted dark chocolate, coffee, and sour red wine vinegar and citrus finish.

BoostIPA (1216) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle all to myself. Batch 1, bottled march 2013. Pours a deep brown/blacksmiths tan head. Aromas of chocolate soaked sour fruit, some roast. No hops detected. Taste is sour and lightly bitter. Flavors comes across as a soured imperial stout. Not overly tart, just enough to get the point across. No wine barrel influence detected, although there is oak present. Alcohol is completely hidden, and this beer is very dry. Finishes with a light sourness and some bitter coffee. Very nice.

jonnyguns (886) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller Webshop thanks to Mane Liquor lads. Pours black with a small head. Pinot barrels, funk, tart cherries and brown sugar dominate the nose. Really full on lots going on here. Heaps of tarty dark fruits coming through with a funky pinot finish. Very tarty but really tasty stuff.

maneliquor (3011) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller Webshop. Pours black with little head. Nose is full of Pinot, tarty cherry and funk. Superb balance to this. Kind of comes across in the fashion that less is more. Complex as fuck. Loads of tarty dark berries with mild aniseed and molasses which is when the funk comes out. Tarty in all the right way with some tannin like notes of a Pinot and it works a treat. Damn tasty stuff

jkwood04 (3804) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 5, 2014
750ml bottle in a teku. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of sourness/tartness, some dark malts and light roast and light coffee, some wine and oak, hints of and hints of alcohol. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A pretty good beer but was expecting better.

hopscotch (8915) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle... Coal-black ale with no head. The bouquet is all about toasted oak, vanilla and dark cherries. Medium-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is roasty, vinous and tangy with a carbonic, burnt finish. Thanks to newcigarz for popping the top on this one!

Yorker (1112) - Herning, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2014
Corked 75 cl bottle @ home (BEWARE: gusher!). Pours black with a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are red wine, chocolate, oak, tartness, brett, and coffee - with a dry and tart finish

Lilja (1553) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2014
Hmm, en flaska från Brill. Smak och doft av brett med aningar av rödvin, vinäger, ekfat, russin och örter. Lätt syrlighet och likt ett rödvin i karaktären. Inga stora smaker utan en mer mjukare framtoning vilket funka väldigt bra.

Dark opaque black with nice bubbly tan head. The aroma is acetic and funky. Taste is unexpected. Almost a little smoky. Followed up with some tartness, which I am sure will be there even more so in the bottles I am saving. Will rerate after I crack one of those open.
