Smoke and hints of berry win at first. Hints of coffee in the middle. Berriyful, smoky, slightly alcocholy finish. Rather medium bodied, quite drinkable, experimental stoutish. Very interesting.

rikstar (2308) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2016
0,33l fles uit de brouwshop. Zwart met een fluwelen schuimkraag. Aroma begint vol zuur, zwarte bessen, cranberry, kandijkoek en en risteretto koffie. Aandronk is zuur, met daarna ook snel de verwarmende tonen van de imperial stout, mooie volle alcoholwarmte, en een afdronk die aam een volle fruitige wijn doet denken. De rook komt niet echt naar boven maar wel een,maar wel een fantastische en heftige beleving.

teorn88 (6742) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2015
Backlog rating. Bottle shared by me at CBC CW, London. It pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. Aroma is rich sweet chocolate, dark fruits, raisins, light vinegar funk, red berries and red wine. Taste is also sweet upfront and lightly funky and tangy in the finish, with more notes of milk chocolate, roated malts, red wine, dark fruits, red berries. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, pretty interesting

AirForceHops (6305) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 22, 2015
12 oz bottle thanks to AdamC. Much thanks! Deep brown / Amber color, lasting full head. Aroma is sour grain, vinegar, and like smoke.

Flavor is pretty much the same as the aroma. Sour grain base with a bad Bactria note. This is an infected beer that the brewer somehow still bottled in sold. Are you kidding me?? No thanks!

Dark brownish black, 1 finger head. good head cap sound. Smells a bit infected but it is a ‘sour stout’ grapes, sour lemon juice Sour is light, not too much but it’s certainly sour. Grapes, wheat, oak, charred smoke, peat, a little chocolate.
