2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2013 Bottle. Appearance: dark brown black with monstrous foamy tan head. Aroma: chocolate, dark cherry, some coffee and earthiness. Taste: slight tart cherry on front, leading into chocolate and sweet bourbon and ends kind of tart. Kinda reminds me of a cherry cordial which I don’t like. Mouthfeel: medium to thick and slick with little carbonation. Overall: it’s just kind of weird to me and I wish it were more sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle (Issue #1) in a teku. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some light sourness/funkiness, oak and vanilla, some light chocolate, and some dough/bread. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the stout and the sourness and the barrel. Average texture with a good amount of carbonation. A pretty cool and interesting beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque dark brown to black, with two fingers of fluffy choco head on top. Rich chocolate- and caramel-scented malt aroma. A pleasant yoghurty berry-like fruitiness blends well in. Also some fine bourbon notes and hint of wood. Full body. Smooth and juicy on the palate. Big malt base. Mild roast, choco and caramel. Also a prominent lactic acidity, featuring red berries, raisins and cherries. Faint bourbon tones. Very comlex and very tasty. Imperial Stout meets Oud bruin! [ Corked and wired 1pint 9.4. fl.oz. From a trade with Travlr back at Toer de Geuze 2013. Thanks man! ]

Bottle - Sour dark malts with some lacto. Jet black with a brown head. Funky, sour dark malts, oak and a dry finish. Very odd, but interesting.

Bottle shared at The Bruery - thanks to Andrew! Pours clear brown with a creamy, tan head. Lots of raisins here, cake, lightly oxidised character, dark bread, some wood. Medium to full in body with fine average carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with ripe and dark berries, toffee, some tangy fruits. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12/2013 3R6P gathering +++ Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was bourbon, coconut and vanilla. The flavor was tart, sour and lactic with notes of dark fruits, red wine, coconut, chocolate and vanilla. Long tar t and sour finish with lingering red wine and coconut. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.
