Handbottled. Rough paint thinner aroma. Almost black colour, seems a little unclear. Thick and very oily mouthfeel. The flavour has more paint thinner, a bit of chemicals. Late roast barley flavour and some sourness that must be the Brett. Not my thing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Handbottled, courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours hazy to black with no head, but not much different from tap apparently. Aroma is fruity and hardroasted malty. Solid port wine and light brett dryness. Dark roasted malt flavoured, very acidic roasted. Soy sauce finish with a light burning touch. I get the underlying Brunch beer, but the brett is rather subdued compared to the port wine influence. Fun experiment, but somewhat unrefined.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. A pitch black beer with bubbly brown head. The aroma is powerful with notes of chocolate, wood, port wine, over ripe grapes, and some roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, over ripe fruits, port wine, wood, and some soy sauce and chocolate, leading to a dry roasted, and woody finish. Not very harmonious.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the 1. BBF at De Molen. Completely black pour crowned with a thin light brown headcap. The nose is dominated of strong coffee, drugged with some oak and som vinoes sweetness from the port. Its like there is some cherries too?
The taste is heavy with a clearly sourness present from the brett. Plenty of coffee topped with oak-notes and vanilla and raisins. The mouthfeel is fat with a low carbonation. The sourness is medium but still I experienced it like surprising and perfectly balanced from the port-barrels. In the finish there is caramels with hops, alcohol and coffee. It all ends up in a tough bitter aftertaste with a neat sweetness. A completely packed an enjoyable beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap @ 1st BBF, de Molen. The aroma has port (fruity), chcolate, some raisin. Black coloured beer, sticking to the glass. The beer is sweet and becomes more bitter to the end. It has much complexness of fruity port, wood, chocolate and coffee. More dry in the end. Very well balanced taste sensation. This was one of the top class beers of the festival.

[my 5,600th rating]
Pours completely black with a small, staying, creamy beige film head. Aroma is just f**king amazing. Brett, sweetness, roasted, chocolate, blackberries, oak, dryness, light tartness, light port. Amazingly well integrated even. Mouthfeel is amazingly light, yet still creamy and dry. Flavour is equally amazing. Chocolate and coffee dominating, good dryness from the brett, berries and light ashy. Some port character, lending it a vinious edge despite being so light-feeling. Light sour oak character in the finish, adding on the coffee notes. Wow! Nice!
