stravale (2567) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 23, 2012
Keg @ BrewDog Edinburgh, 200612
Dark brown, thin tan ring around glass, hint of lacing
Aroma - Fruity sour, some alcohol, rather tart, dark fruity malts, no hops
Taste - Red fruits, bretty, sour lambicy notes but not too much, sweet dark malts, red wine, dark fruits, good if a bit muddled - I prefer the normal Monk’s Elixir to this
Palate - soft carb, full rich body. Finish as main flavour, sour, dab of acetic acid.
Overall - Interesting, rather good, but I prefer this with no brett....as a Quadrupel this one is no way among the best

BenH (3244) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2012
Tap at brewdog. Near black with tan head. Aroma has funky sherbet Brett up front, then some chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, vanilla. Taste has Brett, sweet brown sugar, molasses, hint of licorice, hint of chocolate. Sickly sweet with a sour finish. This doesn’t work for me, I found it quite unpleasant

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2012
Keg at BrewDog Edinburgh. Deep reddish black, thin off-white head. Interesting and strange nose - overripe cherries, balsamic vinegar, hint of manure, tart raspberry, green apples. Nice soft sweetness up front, hint of caramel, raspberry, dry white wine acidity, grassy woody brett, soft tartness. Nice and complex.

ClubGonzo (4897) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours a murky deep brown body with a medium light beige frothy head. Nose is complex and quite nice: tart, berry-like brett tones, lemon, wood, red wine, vanilla, white pepper, grapes and dark malts. Taste is herbal sugary tones, sweet malts, red wine and hints of vanilla. Mildly bubbling carbonation, undoubtly subdued from the barrel aging. The whole thing doesn’t seem to agree with me: where is this thing going? What does it want from me? It’s not quite sour, nor too sweet, yet it seems to be wanting to go in each of those directions. The brett character somehow manages to blend in with the red wine, but the barrel character is overshadowed by the sweet malty tones from the Belgian strong ale. All in all, this is too much of a wild fandango in my mouth and I really feel a bit more structure would be good. Very interesting though, and highly original: this is a beer you don’t taste too often - I don’t care how much of a blase ticker you are. :-)

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2012
375ml bottle, from Erzbierschof. Pours a dark reddish-brown with a beige head. Smells of Brett, balsamic vinegar, some feet, and a hint of wood beneath. Tastes intriguing and exquisite; cherries, vanilla, caramel, cream. A heavy sweetness, part caramel and part fruit, with a creamy soft texture, with just a hint of tartness to make it real. This is wonderful!
