pours a dark black color w/ a large chocolate oatmeal looking head w/ some thick lacing. bittersweet chocolate in the aroma some dark fruits and light dry wood notes hintes of lactose and a bit of funk. Palate is pretty avg. Flavor is heavily bret infected lots of funk, then some dry lightly bitter chocolates and some dark fruits.. a bit bitter in the finish but overall pretty good.. a very unique interpritation of the style.

Bottle. Pours a chalky dark brown, with a huge rocky atn coloerd head. Aroma is oak, yeast, bitter chocolate, dried fruit. Flavor is oak, hops, roasted malt, and bitter chocolate. Palate is medium-full, medium to highly carbonated, dry finish. Unique in a good way!

bu11zeye (12314) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2006
(750ml bottle, 2005 vintage) Pours a opaque black body with a large long-lasting frothy rich brown head. Aroma of bretts, wood, cola, cocoa, florals, dark fruits, and a hint of lactose. Flavor of oak, vinous, hops, roasted malt, and semi-sweet chocolate with a carbonated mouthfeel and a dry finish. An extremely complex Belgian inspired stout; another amazing beer from Jolly Pumpkin.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 3, 2006
750mL bottle. Opaque black with a towering rocky brown head. Chalky chocolate underneath a phenolic tart brett aroma. Vestiges of coffee bean and smooth chocolate combine with a mild tartness. Ruddy eartheness in the finish with some astringency and a faint bitterness. Mouthfeel is a meaty medium, slightly dry.

Ungstrup (30740) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
A pitch black beer with a thick dark brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of chocolate as well as some notes of vanilla, and light notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet - and rather acidic - is it bret? but also with notes of wood as well as light notes of chocolate.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2006
750ml bottle courtesy of Styles. almost black on the pour with a light brown chocolate mousse whipped head which lasted forever. so much carbonation in fact, it took damn near 10 minutes for this to be drinkable. aroma was of roasted malts, chocolate and some coffee. flavor was all over the place and depended on the temperature as to what I was able to detect. early on it seemed to be chocolate up front with a dry roast coffee on the finish. as it warmed I noticed hints of grapes, followed later by an earthy oak flavor. an interesting FES, but it has too much carbonation for my taste and this detracts and distorts the flavors.

decaturstevo (5487) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Dark almost black pour with a tan head. An aroma of cocoffee. A flavor of what I want to call tart but may lean towards sour. A slightly fizzy palate that is also a bit thin. As this beer warms it become much more mellow.

scoobyluv (511) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 15, 2006
the bottle’s cool. typical dark color and tan head of a stout. of course, smell of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and coffee. tastes like sour, carbonated nonsense

A very foamy beer - the head took up the whole glass upon pouring it. It as a good flavor, finish and even aroma (what a generic statement is that??). Anyway, its head is dark brown, like a porter or a huge stout. Very strong roasted malts with vanilla and woodiness - definetly the oak aging comes out. It is slightly sweet and quite sour. Has a lot of lactose-sweetness. Good.

Pours black with a tan head. Roast malt aroma with apple cider following. Slightly sour touch in the flavor which I find unpleasant. Brett stout??
