Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Pours dark brow with a tan head. Smells of cherroes, woody, lactic. Tastes sherry and on the acidic side with some earthy undertones on the finish. This morphed into something nice.

Bottle thanks to mesandsim had at home with them. Alround rating: Awsome stuff, no longer anything like a dry stout, Oxidised, sherry, very reminisant of just being in the Kulminator.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle thanks very kindly to Alex for this rarity. Dark chestnut brown with a very good tan head. This has aged really well without a doubt. Full of sherry and madeira, plenty caramel, fruity and a little tarty. Slight minty note is the only unpleasant sign of age but it’s faint enough not to spoil it. Luscious mouthfeel. Clean finish. Good stuff. Thanks a lot Alex.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Semi-aged sample - bottled in July 2003. Pours a clear, warm mahogany with a reddish hue and a neat, beige head. Actually a surprisingly light body. Very vinous accents - balsamico - reminding me mostly of a Flemish Sour, albeit some lightly burned notes of malt appear in the finish. According to the label it’s meant for cellaring, but I doubt if the acidity is intentional. But generally I find it very lovely. Thanks to Bov for this. 100306

rickgordon (3853) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2004
Bottled. Dark brown, tan head. A little phenolic along with quite some roasted malt. Chocolate notes, and a little vineous. A bit stale bitterness in the finish.

Nate (4199) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2004
Malty deep aroma, prune, acid, herbal notes. Chocolate. Dark brown-black with tan head. Watery with medium carbonatio. Starts tat, vinuous, with prune raisin tart. Tobacco and tart finish. Dry chalky bitter after. Decent, but a little eccentric.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JUN 19, 2004
Highly explosive bottle! Pours a foamy tan head on a dark brown body. Sharp spicy, malty and peppery aroma. Flavor is quite sour and roasted malty with notes of herbs, smoke, chocolate, pepper, spices and citrus. Very special and different but quite interesting. Thanks to Philippe (Bov) for trading me this!

Huge, greige head leaving fine lace; completely opaque black-brown beer. Roasted malts, dark aromatic malts, bitter chocolate, hazelnuts - but nothing very outspoken, subdued. Nice sourish-vegetable taste (rhubarb?), mint, liquorice ("jap"), woody, bitter chocolate - and very good balance! Medium bodied, "false" texture by the dark malts, long bitter sourish aftertaste. That’s a good one. Nice balance - maybe just a touch too persistent sour, but a very good try. Thanks Alex!
