"definitely has that JP house character, but this keg has some extra age and conditioning on it, making it even more funky & sour than usual. interesting interplay with the darker, dark fruity malts for sure. not something I could drink a ton of, but quite good in smaller doses."

and again: thank you very much for the generosity of the bartender of Sörmanufaktúra/Sörspecialista! His gesture is very much appreciated :-)
deep dark brown, almost black colour, moderate sized beige head;aroma of sour fruits, roasted coffee, earthy notes and hints of alcohol; taste of intensive sourness with roasted coffee notes; like a mixture of a cup of coffee and a geuze with the dominance of the latter one...interesting

Pours a dark brown with a thin beige head. Has an aroma of sour berries, chocolate, and some roast. Flavor is also sour fruit and some bitterness. Pretty good, though I’m still getting a taste for sour beers.

lambic like aciditi and stoutish coffeeish aroma, some roasty notes; hazy black, medium beige foam; medium sourness, medium sweetness, lightly bitter; medium(+) body, quite thick and tart feel, average carbonation, long tart and sweet finish;
Overall: somewhere between lambic and stout, interesting, well made, balanced
