yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. It pours a dark body, as black as can be, topped by a dense, finger-thick tan head leaving lacings. The aroma is funky and sourish, almost lambic-ish, with roasted malts and some licorice. Nice indeed, but sort of one dimensional. Sour, roasted flavor with dark dried fruits, licorice and some coffee notes. It’s full-bodied and soft on the palate, dry, and with a lasting roasted and sour finish with prunes and rum raisins. Starts a bit boring this one, but damn it’s fine one. 140808

pushkinwow (1990) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
750ml bottle. Brown with a tan head. Roasted malt, mild tart and sourness but not over the top, becomes nice and dry with a moderate+ carbonation and a mild fresh body, some cherry on the finish and quite enjoyable.

jonnyguns (903) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from mane liquor shared to celebrate our ironman success! Wow this is weird. Pours pitch black like a typical stout but huge sourness in the aroma! So confused right now. Taste is full of roasted coffee, oaky vanilla and dark chocolate upfront, then you get smacked by the sourness. Heaps of tartness and barnyard funk in the finish. Such a weird beer but it works wonderfully!

jaghana (3808) - Strasbourg (France), 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.
