Big thanks to Sledutah, Craig! It pours with a mahogany colored body that supports a tan head. The aroma offers up a sweet dash of smooth brandy, smooth earthy notes and some malt sweetness that gives way to tart Brett. The taste begins tart and somewhat acidic with a thin brief sweet brandy note here and there. It ends a bit on the sour side.

Boutip (4661) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle: Poured a light black color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of tart notes with some funky yeast notes and light dry roasted malt. Taste is also dominated by tart notes with some acidity and dry roasted malt notes. Brandy notes are pretty tame and hard to distinguish. Body is light with medium carbonation. Not bad overall but I can’t say that sour porter is a style that I really seek.

Bottle (375 ml). Thanks to Mark for this one! Dark reddish brown with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma is quite fruity (mostly berries) along roasted malt, acidic notes, hints of alcohol and oak notes. Taste is quite fruity too (berries and grapes) along roasted malt, moderate sourness, oak and brandy. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly vinous mouthfeel. Moderately warming finish. Good dark sour. Easy drinking for the style and quite enjoyable. Lack a little depth tough. Better than the Grand Cru version.

mathieuc (1225) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a dark brown and is topped by a light beige rim that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of dark fruits and alcohol, simple but effective. Taste is of brandy, chocolate and fruity with a tart edge. Alcohol shows slightly but what do you expect from a brandy barrel aged beer? Anyway, it is slightly hot like it should and vinous with a medium level of carbonation. This was better than the Grand Cru and much enjoyed!

GT2 (8342) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 7, 2013
375mL thanks to unclerudy. Clear deep brown red with coffee, weak foam with spotty lace. Subtle hazelnut chocolate cake nose, not much impending acid is nice. Small hints of brandy but barely. Sharp cranberry and flashes of balsamic. Taste is lactic, tangy, lots of lime and salt. Bright and quenching. Doesn’t really matter what barrel, this base sour brown is fantastic.

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2013
Bottled. A black beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of smoke, roasted malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, brettanomyces, and roasted malt, leading to a dry finish.
