Had this one at the ACBF 2011. Brown, black colored brew. Brett all over the place. Sweet malts and fruits, berries, raisin. Nice.

stravale (2280) - 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

Abio (1630) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2011
Sour-sweet smell. Taste is moderated sour, but still to much for me. Orange brown coloured with a small head. Not my beer, disapointed me a bit.

stefannilssons (1496) - SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2012
Det här var en intressant öl med mycket smak av syra, fruktighet och smaken i sig är väldigt dov. Kroppen på ölen var bra och balansen likaså.

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.
