Black pour with a 1 finger, creamy tan head. Aroma of roast, roasted nuts, tart funkiness, chocolate, day old coffee, dark caramel, wet leather, green wood, tart, under ripe berries and earthy fallen leaves. Flavor is roast, nuts and chocolate up front, a hint of tartness comes in then along with earthy wood, light smoke, leather, then some dry earth, a little funk, burnt sugar, musty hay and light earthy pine. Medium body, off dry feel throughout with a slightly chalky feel, light, but sharp carbonation and slightly acidic feel. Good stuff, I would love to try more funky stouts, so far I think it is just this and New Glarus Old English Porter.

Shared BOTTLE. Fruity tartness, brutal acid roast. Yuck, messy! ... and only 63/75 characters.

Style et résumé: Stout d’inspiration belge.
Comment: Bouteille partagée de 750ml. Patrick (un autre).
Description: J’ai pris le temps d’écouter une entrevue avec Ron Jeffries qui racontait comment la bière est fabriquée. Je voulais en savoir plus sur cette bière avant de la déguster. Au versement elle est superbe, une robe profonde avec une mousse épaisse, le liquide semble, je dis bien semble visqueux, il n’en est rien. Au nez se mêlent des effluves de chocolat et de vin rouge. La bouche est plus mince que prévu. La finale est courte. Le profil de saveurs est sur le chocolat et le vin rouge. L’alcool est vraiment discret. Sommes toute correcte mais je ne suis pas un fan de ce style.
Note: 7+/10

Mortlach (1886) - Rome, ITALY - AUG 20, 2016
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Pours deep brown/black with a big creamy cappuccino head. Aroma is vinous, roasted malts notes, cherry, blood, light vinegar. Flavour is medium sour with a light vinegar touch, coffee. High body, medium to light carbonation. Complex, a bit rough, but exciting.

Une magnifique tête sur ce liquide noir. C’est la perfection. Les parfums de malts rôtis et de fruits vineux se combinent admirablement bien tout en s’agrémentant d’arômes chocolatés. Ça sent très bon cette bibitte. Au goût, je suis vraiment étonné: le choc des saveurs fonctionne grandement. Habituellement, je ne raffole pas des stouts surets. Mais ici, tout est tellement cohésif et goûteux. Au palais, le corps est crémeux et riche. Ça frise la note parfaite. En finale, je note de franches notes vineuses et chocolatées. Je dois dire que ce stout est, pour moi, excellent.

Vighals (3037) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2016
Svart med fingerhøyt mørk beige skum. Lukter kandis, mørke frukter og noe røkt. Middels fylde. Veldig sur til å være stout. Sure røde bær, noe epler, salt lakris. Morsom øl. Middels lang, noe tørr avslutning. (Schouskjelleren ølfestival 2016)

(bottle) clear very dark brown colour with a small brown head; aroma of wet wood, red wine, bitter chocolate, hint of smoke; oily palate; intense, rich sour flavour with a long, medium sour finish followed by a longer, light bitter one; excellent sour

I really like sour stouts and this is one of the nicer ones I’ve had. Pours black, thick tan head. Aroma is sweet, slick, slightly thin mouthfeel. Sour chocolate.

Bottle. Black colour. Sour chocolate aroma. Starts like a slighlty sour stout but the sourness dominates as you keep drinking

As per a bunch of tasting notes below I ask the question ’is this a sour’? I hope so as it’s done very well. Razor sharp precision right through the palate. One sniff and you know you’re in for Flemish sour goodness. tasted blind I would have sworn this was high charged Rodenbach.
