750 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with some purple highlights and a small beige head. The aroma and flavor is an interesting combination of stout and sour with the addition of blueberries and spicy peppers. Some of the roasty, chocolate stout notes are there; spicy peppers add some heat; the tart blueberry notes and mild acidity add another layer. I would drink this again.

Trop vinaigré à mon goût, le fruit ne se manifeste pas comme je m’attendais.

Really comes together well. Looks like blueberry syrup with no head or lacing. Super sour, like unripe blueberries with malt. Light carbonation. Slightly syrupy consistency. On tap at Ebenezer Kezar’s.

Bottle with Damico. Pours a dark brown color with a coffee colored head. Aroma of fruit with some slight yeasty funk. Tarty blueberry and other fruit notes. Interesting.

Pours unclear dark brownish coffee in with a dark cocoa colored head. The aroma brings acetone for sure, wild yeast dominance and some fruitiness. The flavor brings big tart nail polish remover wild yeast, wild cherry/berry notes with a somewhat smooth puckering ending.

Tobacco, cider vinegar, prunes, and currants on the nose, a fabulous combination. Quite vinous. Opaque black, no head. Full body, sublime smooth almost viscous texture. Tart apple, prune, currant, tar, and tobacco flavor. Char finish. Fabulous complexity with rich dark fruit and tobaco notes. Amazing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of tart blueberry, sticky molasses, and great acidic yeast. Pours deep purple with almost no film. Taste is intensely tart with good blueberry, spicy pepper, and finishes with a toffee bourbon. Hard to decide when the acid alcohol burn and chili pepper sting transfer but it is a wonderful sensation. Will drink again.

Draft... This beer rocks!... Pours black with a large, creamy, lightly-tanned head that never diminishes. The aroma is a swirl of farmhouse yeast dustiness and sweet port intertwined with modest blueberry and cocoa components. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and vibrant carbonation. The flavor is oude bruin-like – sharp acidity flanked by fruity blueberries, cherries and hints of caramel and mocha. It’s a bit roasty, but that’s not a major element here. Finishes acutely tart and fruity. World class beer from a world class brewery!
