Bottle. Heavily sour aroma. Light underlying sweet malt, raisins, plums. However keep in mind it is only light compared to the shitty sourness. Very dark colour. Taste is total sour mayhem. Probably the first time I had vinegar in beer package.

Lavev z Bratislavy, d´akujem:Literally black, small and stable tanned head; sourish-roasty nose with a small caramelly background; mainly sourish flavour, tart and quite light bodied; sourish and caramelly finish. Žádná sláva…

Big thanks to djd07 .. . Deep oily black .. . Harsh sour soy sauce and ink .. . Dirty gritty mouth .. . Not as bad as the reviews would make you think but still, a small sample was just fine .. . .
So, do we tell Stevie Wonder no one is throwing anything at him while he plays or do we just let him keep dodging imaginary shit like that?

Bottle, kindly provided by Cuso. Low choco head. A brown shade avay from black. Initial aroma is milk chocolate, offset by a heavy yoghurty acidity. Light-bodied, due to an ongoing infection. Taste is heavily sour and lactic-acidic. Some nice chocolatey and fine roasty tones shine through, though. Hope I’ll get a chance to re-rate.

olio (6703) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
33 cl bottle. Pours pitch color with a small head. Aroma of soy, malts, licorice and bourbon. Flavor is very sour and even acidic, very unpleasant first impression, some fruits and sour berries also. Quite unpleasant. 2252

laiti (6153) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
33 cl bottle @ Tampella
Aroma has rubbery notes, soy sauce and salty licorice, reminds me of Freigeist beers. Very sour and tart flavour with grapefruit, sour apples, lactic acid and plastic. Also some redcurrants, vinegar and balsamico. Quite undrinkable.

lusikka (6609) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
330 ml bottle, thanks rosenbergh. Pours a black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, soy sauce, alcohol and sourness. Flavour is very acidic with berries, roastiness, mild bitterness and gooseberry bush. Light bodied, thin mouthfeel and a strong acidic finish. Quite acrid and weird stout. Aroma was decent.

tiong (4086) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
330ml bottle

Pours dark brown, almost black with a tiny head. Aroma of roasted malts, vinegar, sourish notes and off-flavors. Taste is messy, slightly roasty and sourish with loads of vinegar and off-flavors. Finish is sweetish, messy and sourish. Something is clearly wrong here.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2013
murky red-brown, thinnest white ring. Heavy lime nose, lightest roast elements. Ultra lime flavor, citric burns throughout the mouth, chest alight, no roast elements at all, slick and pure acid. Blech.
