drsordr (2332) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2013
It was a gusher. A little worried because the foam was incredibly sour. Once in glass, more pleasurable sour in the nose. Initial sour, cherry, with almost grape Koop aid flavor. Followed by sour fruit then some tannin from the barrel. Interesting beer, but wouldn’t want to drink much of it.

750ml bottle via trade. Poured a dark black with a foamy beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, sourness, hint of smoke, barrel, earthy and almost a red wine hint. Flavor is similar with wet dark toast and chalky dark choclate. Bigger body, lingering funky taste. Good stuff.

humlelala (1306) - DENMARK - MAY 14, 2016
(on tap @ CBC 2016) Poured into a CBC tulip reveals a pitch black body with little, tan head. Not much in way of regeneration. If you close your eyes and take in the aroma you wouldn’t be able to guess the colour of this beer that has aroma notes of funk, dill, horse blanket and mushrooms. In the mouth the beer carries an oily texture, shows flat carbonation and a medium/light body with a tart finish. Flavour holds moderate tartness but in a restrained way that makes it quite drinkable despite the ABV, which is well masked.
