Shared by erickok at 1st RBFG. Color: opaque black beer with velvet reflexion no carbonation and no head. Smell: acid and sour notes with coffee and chocolate presence. Taste: nice malty and sour complexity. Quiet interesting mix. Aftertaste: sweet and malty notes.

jaghana (4127) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle 75cl @1rst FRBG. Nose is on wood, oxidized like. Aroma is rich on dark chocolate, sour cherry notes, mirabelle, apricot, caramel and licorice, some acidity. Interesting, but the usual stout is more impressive.

Salmoniform (989) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Poured from bottle to snifter glass. Jet black hue with creamy brown head. Aroma is crazy with essences of cherry, chocolate, toffee, lactic, coffee, raisin, slight soy, caramel. Mouthfeel is great with a hefty medium body and smooth carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness with an immediate sourness and astringent bitterness to round everything out. Overall this is a complex crazy brew that somehow really works!

On tap at the brewery! Dark chocolate, woody aroma. Dark black in color, tan head. Flavor is dark cherry, chocolate, roasted malts, and light funk. Light tartness on palate, very mild compared to some sour stouts. Very pleasant.

22 oz bottle, vintage is Batch #4. Pours a translucent dark black with light barely passing on meniscus that is a slight ruby hue. Aroma is akin to a chocolate covered sour cherry. Flavor is same with oak and vanilla, with bread and dark fruit. A nice beer.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle shared up at Hunaphu Day. Black pour with a small brown head. Aroma of buttermilk, lactic acid, roasted malts, faint cocoa and oak. Similar in flavor with more of the chocolate/roast notes pulling forward and a tart, lactic finish. Solid beer.
