BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 20, 2014
750ml bottle a bit of a gusher but not an issue - pours a deep chestnut brown with an off white head. I get a lot of fruity Pinot notes both on the nose and palate. Oak, fig, leather, combined with a perfect tartness, nice carbonation, medium bodied, more Pinot notes, freaking delicious.

Elwood (3046) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Serving: 22 oz. bottle. Almost black pour with a small but lasting brown head. The nose is has plenty of funk combined with the pinot and oak notes. Very complex on the tongue. Waves of different flavors come across. Roasted malt, wine, funk, oak, chocolate, earthy hops, and dark fruit flavors. Quite the mix. Different and tasty.

MacBoost (1246) - 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 (903) - 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 (3056) - 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

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.
