Torrefacto (1399) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 27, 2015
Caoba oscuro, espuma beis. Aromas de frutos rojos, vino, madera. Cuerpo ligero, inicio afrutado, caramelo y final moderadamente seco. Nada que ver con una stout.

Mirakel88 (4) - - SEP 12, 2014 does not count
A: Gushes from the bottle when I openend it. Poors more like a cola, also the foam is like a cola. Redbrown colour with beige foam. S: A very sweet smell, but also a bit sourness to it. T: Sour? This reminds of a flemish sour ale. A little sweetness. Taste stays for quite a while. M: A little fizzy. O: This one is OK, but not if you would expect an oatmeal stout. This one is more like a sour ale.

bierkoning (12193) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle. Roast and bordeaux wine in the aroma. Dark brown color. Tart, vinous flavor in which oak and Bordeaux wine present themselves. And totally overshadow the oats. Lovely beer, though.

ShivanDragon (3157) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2014
75cl, Kempisch vuur Haverstout reserva, lichte gusher, volmoutig bier van 1/3 haver, mout (gerst, amber, cara en roast), hop Zeer donker bruin bier met warme rode gloed bovenop vormt zich een minimale kaki kraag. Het aroma is moutig, vanille, caramel, rozijnen en bovenal wijachtig (uiteraard van de Bordeaux BA). Smaken zijn matig zoet, zwak bitter, redelijk zuur, licht fruitig, ietwat droog, medium body, glad in de mond maar wat bovenal opvalt is beperkte complexiteit en het feit dat ik géén specifieke stout onderdelen in het bier terug kan vinden, het lijkt meer op een sour red/brown dan een stout. Dat wil natuurlijk niet zeggen dat het niet lekker is, in tegendeel. persoonlijk vind ik de sour red/brown veelal prima bieren, en zo ook deze.

JorisPPattyn (9253) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2013
Small cream head over unclear brown beer. A strange nose, composed of pine, wood, jenever and aftershave, with dark malts lurking beneath. Sourish, lactic, fruity (red fruit) - excellent balance, interesting flavour! In the finish, mushrooms Champignons à la Bordelaise . Medium bodied at best, acid thinning, but slick. Excellent! Some other Be brewers (let’s not do names) do Barrel aging because it’s a fad, and it sells to the geeks. This one is done because it’s a plus - kudo’s!

Bottle sample @ ZBF’13 shared with the RB Belgian. Iic aussi une très belle surprise de fin de festival pour une bière seulement annoncée au stand de la brasserie. Brune foncée, col épais beige. Arôme est sympa et plein de bonnes notes de Bordeaux. Malté, caramel, fruité rouge, grillé avec un bouquet boisé, vin généreux sans pour cela dominer les petits 6.5% de cette bière. Palais est clairement dans la lignée du Bordeaux, notes de vin rouge sans devenir de trop. Malté grillé et caramel en fin de bouche. Barrique donne un ajout subtile de boisé tout en gardant une certaine rondeur douce de fin de bouche. Fruité aigres-doux surtout dans le contact boisé.

Cool find by Sebletitje. 2011 Vintage. 75 cl. bottle sampled @ ZBF 2013. Black with some mocha bubbles. Nose is sweet red wine, very vinous, sour bacteria, light berries, mocha & chocolate,… Taste is sweet mocha with souring bacteria, brett, sour red wine barrel, mocha, sour malts, very vinous, body is unfortunately a touch too weak to fully carry this but this is lovely still.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Accidental rerating, and apparently it matches with my original rating quite well.

5/X/13 - 75cl bottle @ Modeste Bierfestival (Antwerpen) - BB: n/a (2013-xxx)

Clear red purple beer, big aery yellow head, littl stable, non adhesive. Aroma: pretty sour, tannins, vinegar, woody. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish start, fruity notes, bit lemony, acidic, some dried fruits. Aftertaste: very fruity, red fruits, sour cherries, little bitter, more sour, very weird ending. No coffee, or mocha, or chocolate... very weird. Amazing how the stout flavours are completely gone.

Ar: 7, Ap: 3, T: 7, P: 3, O: 14, Total: 3.4
