Thanks Pepsicanihave4beers! One of those trick beers one happens upon every few hundred rates where the taste is drastically different from the aroma. Aroma-mildly tart, vinous, slight caramel, bready. Flavor-a big slap in the face with cognac (although good, once I became accustomed to it). Candy, caramelly sweetness. Very low carbonation. A little spicy. Hated this at first, liked it by the end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Few amounts on big loose bubbles. Dark toffee color. Sour, smokey nose and smells like an attic. First drink was a slap in the face as not what I expected. Flavor has smoke undertones with Carmel whiskey hints. Back of the palate leaves a slight pickle notes. The more I drink this the more I like it . Thanks pepsican

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375mL at CK thanks to Travlr. Pours a muddy red maroon with no head. Insanely good nose: oak, tangy/mouth-watering balsamic, powerful lactic character, sour raspberries, lemon acidity. Great Flemish red style nose. Taste is weak, watery, void of pretty much everything. Slight acidic sourness and mineral water. Too bad. :(

Bottle at Churchkey. Murky light brown, five huge bubbles, no lacing. Aroma of citrus and clay. Flavor starts and ends sour, interesting bits of wood and earth. Worth trying.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (shared with Tweety)... Poured a cloudy, dark, orange with a thick, slightly off-white head. Aroma came off almost like a sour, high bacteria, yeasty tones. An easy drinking beer, lots of esters. Fruit, acidic-like earthy, oily, resinous tones. Tasted slightly oxidized, but still balanced and drinkable.
