2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to RABinVA! Pours a dark brown/black with a small frothy tan head. Tart sour cherries and chocolate malt. Taste of sweet chocolate with tart cherry, ending with sour esters and an earthy bitter bourbon alcohol burn. Finish is pretty wicked and nothing else really comes together.

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! ]

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.

Some caramel sweetness on the palate. Lots of nuts, balsamic vinegar, and olives. Old chocolate, green apple, cardboard, roast, and lots of wood. Really fizzy and carbonic.
