Ragnampiza (425) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUL 21, 2014
500 ml (I think ?) bottle from Les Vignerons. Pitch black, no light passing through, with a huge, creamy and fluffy, forever lasting light beige head. Brett and flowers on the nose, relatively hoppy, some light dark fruits, caramel, lots of fruit esters and spices. Quite fruity overall. Completely different in the mouth: much more malty than hoppy, little sourness/acidic edge, not too much roasted malts/chocolate/coffee presence as I was expecting. Mild bitterness, candy sugar, spices and berries in the aftertaste. Average to lively carbonation, medium to full body, slightly creamy texture. Looks and smells great, but the flavour is just not blended and harmonious enough, imho. Still nice.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Colin. Murky dark brown beer, big fluffy pale cream colour head. Airy light palate. Big brett. Touches of fruit and light malts but this is a brett bomb! Light finish.

drpimento (2226) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Interesting farmhouse ale with a dark smallish head and a little lace. Flavors are an odd blend of cocoa, funk, sour, malt, spice. Aroma is Similar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClubGonzo (4025) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle, shared with BBGTC feat. Yngwie and Meilby. Clear dark brown body, large foamy off-white head. Nose is bretty stable tones with loads of hay and straw, citrus, mild red berries and hints of horse blanket. Taste is bitter herbs, citric peel, hay, straw and hints of grass, horsey barnyard tones, cold coffee and dark berries. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty nice farmhouse brew, only not quite my style of beer (which of course draws the score down a bit).

Theydon_Bois (8695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle split at Bruce’s Pad, from an IP, 12/06/14. Extremely dark mahogany brown with a good sized tan covering that retains well. Nose is dark fruit rinds, bretty pangs, funk’o’clock, spice, root liqourice, dark toffee rinse. Taste comprises dark berry fruit, liqourice, brett, light roast, spice, Ribena berries, funky rinse. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid enough stuff.

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Corked bottle: Pours a deep brown with amber highlights, lasting head. Lovely combo of barnyard wildness and toasty dark ale. Wonderfully complex yet still restrained. The 2nd best brew I have from Prairie.

Inbreak (2130) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2014
16.06.2014, 0,75l bottle @ BBGTC tasting:
Big fizzy shortlasting head. Aroma is kind of funky, mild brett, overripe crowberries, barnyard, dark malts, mold, sour coffee, tea, spices, hints of licorice. Taste is slightly dry, heather, mild brett, hay, paper, minerals, sour coffee, spices. Medium bitterness, slightly harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Meilby (7611) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle 750ml @ ClubGonzo
Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma has notes of malt, chocolate, funky, mango and pineapple. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long slightly roasty, berry and funky finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours opaque dark brown with a thick light tan head. The nose is earthy, toasty, ash, dark fruits, jammy berry, light barnyard and candy. The taste is toasty, earthy, barnyard, jammy fruits, roasted malt, cocoa, charred wood, ash, sherbet, citrus peel and some acidity. Full body and high carbonation. Pretty punchy stuff. I am not sure the balance is quite there, but I enjoyed it anyway.

NeoHippie2 (993) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Black pour with a big tan head. Big time funky aromas with notes of spice and plenty of hops. Flavor is way too hoppy and over the top funky. There are some subtle clove and cinnamon notes that are trying desperately to come out but are just crushed by everything else going on. Finishes bone dry. This brew was a mess, I can’t decide what they were trying to do here. Maybe it cellars well but as is, no thank you.
