Pour is a dark brown/ruby color with a big fluffy light brown head. Slightly bretty nose, nice oaky note with a touch of bourbon, big caramel notes, sour cherries and dark fruits, and a nice wet grass funkiness. Wow, really really earthy taste, up front there its a quick tart cherries and citrus with some brett funk, some huge oaky notes and a touch of caramel in the mid palate, then finishes with a very smoky, earthy tobacco note quite strongly. Not sure what to think of this, the smokiness was a little strange I thought, and pairs wierdly with some of the other flavors. I’ll have to let this warm up to see what happens.

Bottle said "Best by 2-15". Drank 9-14. Been cellared about 15 months. Dark murky pour with thick off-white head. Smells like concord grape jam, oak, whiskey barrel, and manure. Rich malty taste with dark fruits prevalent and a hint of chocolate. A very pleasant sourness cleans up the malt and leave the palate fresh with lingering noble hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is lively and refreshing. Finish is long and complex. A nice beer. Complex as you might expect, but not unbalanced.

(Bottle). Strange smell of manure and sour yeast. Quite unpleasant scent but in the background is something nice lurking and the taste is a very pleasant surprise! Crisp taste of hops, yeast, citrus and spices. Unusual and complex beer.

"Dark berry fruitiness, oak, whiskey, funk all in equal measure. This rather dark ale is both mellow and incredibly complex at the same time. lively carbonation. Another that exceeded expectations. Love the whiskey/sour combo with a malty fruitiness that just brings it all together. Could have easily drank the entire 750 myself (though I did not)."

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaska från SB. Ett märkligt öl. Spretigt eller komplex kan man diskutera. Fin syrlig doft med lite sötma, tobak, källare och whiskey i bakgrunden. Smaken är inte så syrlig som doften utan ganska söt med en mängd smaker. Kokos, sötlakrits, vanilj, whiskey, enbärsmust, svagdricka, tobak, kaffe, choklad. Sammantaget är en söt lätt syrlig ganska murrig smakbild. Udda och kul men funkar väl i ärlighetens namn sådär även om jag nog gillade att den var så udda.

Smak och doft av humle, malt, choklad, enbär, rök, trä, tobak, kaffe, svagdricka. Syrlig, lite fadd, lätt kropp, väldigt spretig.

750ml, Boulevard bottling, BBD 02-15, cellar aged for ~14 months. Aroma of dark fruit, yeast funk, slight oak, toasty, nutty brown malt, wheat, cherry, chocolate and very faint touches of leather, bourbon and vanilla, overall quite intriguing and complex. Thoroughly opaque blackish mahogany in color with a ludicrously foamy, uneven, light tan head and gobs of lacing left behind, this is a Brett beer for sure. Flavor profile is strongly fruity, lightly woody, and full of farmy, funked-out yeast, the Brett having had its way with the beer rather nicely over time, adding some straw-like notes to the overall character and providing plenty of dryness and earthiness to the finish, some lingering berry, vanilla and dark malt here as well as a moderate dosage of spicy hop flavor and bitterness. Highly effervescent, dry and very gently acidic on the palate, body is full. This has aged wonderfully, I have to say I am blown away by how good this is, in fact. Really impressive beer, I definitely recommend drinking this soon if you have some, and luckily I have another bottle!

Relativt dov arom. Lite karamell och choklad. Väldigt balanserad i smaken.

Bottle from systembolaget. Strong, deep and a complex smell with some fruits, berries and raisins. Pours solid brown almost black with a creamy beige head. Taste is more bland than smell, and it is very nice and fresh. Thin and nice palate not very full. A surprisingly nice and fresh beer.

With Zach watching the MC vs Olypiacos soccer game, pours a dark pitched brownish black pour with a huge java wispy colored head. Nose is tart and sour with some grainy notes. Taste is tart and sour, but not overwhelmingly so, grainy and yeasty ! Finishes on the same tasting notes with a moderately long sour yeasty alcoholic finish. Quaff Score 7 / 10
