andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2010
Verey very dark brown with a small bubbly beige head. Intense vinegar aroma with lots of subtile woody notes, suprisingly fat malt character, notes of sweet and sour berries, liqourice and some alcohol. Flavor is fat malty with liqourice, intense oak barrel, acidic berries, both green and red apples and funky, murky wet wood. More lively and sharp sourness than expected, packs a good punch. Mouthfeel is slick, body is medium, beer is good, complex, entertaining and well balanced.

Bottle at home. Hazy dark brown coloured with a small off white head. Fruity and light acidic aroma of oak, vanilla and red wine with notes of acetone. Fruity and acidic flavour of oak, vanilla, red wine and acetone. Tart finish of red wine and acetone.

Big Thanks to TampaBrew for this one. A: Pours a nice deep rich dark brown hue. The tan head rises and dies rather quickly. S: Lots of sour for sure. Dark fruit, roasted malt, tart cherries, and oak hide beneath. T: Wonderful beer no doubt about that. Lots of under ripe black cherry. Hints of chocolate and dark fruit. Under ripe black grapes and vanilla make an appearence. A big blast of oak really compliments the sourness. Really good beer. M: Medium in body, smooth, subtle carbonation which helped to carry the flavor. D: Very good. Wish I had a few of these gems in my cellar.

Had this recently at a BA/RB tasting at Bailey’s Taproom in Portland, OR. Colour... amber-brown with no head. Nose... highly acetic, rotten pippins and gravensteins (I mean that in the best of ways). Palate... light bodied, red wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, dried unripe stone fruits, quince, kumquat, pith and a long finish.

Huge thanks to Chad(cpferris) for busting this out at our sour tasting. Pours a deep dark brown that’s pretty much black with a one finger light beige head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind. Vinous earthy aroma with lots of dark fruit notes, especially sour dark cherry, grape, raisin and plum. Earthy oak tannis with a slight vinegary presence in the nose. Slightly malty with hints of chocolate and toffee laying underneath the vinous dark fruit notes. Slightly puckering vinous moutfeel that is dry and tart with a lot of dark fruit notes lingering over a a slightly roasted chocolate malt backbone. I’m surprised hoe dark and malty this beer is considering all of the tart vinous wine barrel notes up front. These flavors dominate and linger throughout but are slightly countered by the subtle malt flavors. Sweet and vinegary with a dry bretty finish. Very complex and surpisingly drinkable. Very good.

Bottle shared at a Portland BA/RB tasting held at Bailey’s Taproom... Poured dark ruby/brownish with a thin head. Sour, pickling aroma. Vinegar taste with malts and fruits. Oaky overall light on the carbonation but a great, brutal, sour and tart palate. Other fruit notes like berries and apples.

Pours sunset brown with pond swamp head. Nose is deep, hints of funk, vinegar, cherry, raisin, and toasted nuts. Taste is thin, sour, tart, cherries, light vinegar, and just hints of roasted barley.

12oz bottle shared by Hophead84, thanks Shane! Pours coffee brown with some faint ruby highlights, lightly hazed, small beige ring. Nice tart cherry nose with hints of other berry fruits, and faint coffee. Flavor was also tart cherry with some earthy qualities and a woody finish. Stoked I got to try this one!

12oz. bottle Batch 4: blend of La Roja, Madrugada and Noel poured into an oversized duvel tulip. A-Pours a semi-opaque black color with very thin lacey head that retains very well even after several drinks. Carbonation appears to be medium with good lacing around the glass. S-The smell of this beer is amazing! Having had Perseguidor 3, I would say this is the only trait that is better in 4. Insanely complex nose, smells of wood, funk, dried fruit, chestnuts and roasted malt. Overall, the most dominating smell is the funkiness with the smell of La Rojo as the most prevalent of the 3 beer in the blend. T&M-somewhat thin, not at all what you would expect from a beer this color. Tastes of funky souness, very tart, with hints of dried fruit along with the taste of the barrel. Truely exceptional. When I poured this beer and smelled it I thought it would taste like a roasted sour type of stout. There is virtually no stout flavor, I tastes similar to an Old Bruin, but thiner and less acidic, a sipper to be sure do to the tartness, but very tasty. D-Another great offering in this series, Captain Ron is a master at blending his styles. I’m not really a big fan of the Madrugada, so when I heard it was gonna be a part of this beer I had my doubts, but it works so nicely. A truely wonderful beer perfect for that cold winter night, but light enough to be enjoyed anytime.
