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.

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?

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
