Bottle @ cz. Aroma is bretty red fruits with roasty liquorice. Some mocca. Flavour is dry sourish red fruits with dark malts and caramel. Okay I guess.

Vaiz (3348) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle in a field in the Czech Republic. Black pour, creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, bretty, fruits, chocolate, wine and slightly spicy. Flavor is quite bitter, sour and with brett. Decent balance and nice body.

Gran sabor y muy buen aroma. Con un retro gusto a vinate impresionante quizás menos equilibrada que que la big worse del mismo estilo!

Ragnampiza (424) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAR 30, 2014
500 ml bottle from Portale Birra, served in a snifter glass. Dark brown, but looks pitch black in the glass, with a nice, frothy and persistent beige head. Very good lacing. On the nose blackberries, dark fruits under spirits, red wine qualities (wood, oak, light brett, leather) and just a hint of roasted malts. Same impressions in the mouth, but more amplified: moderately sour, lots of tannins, astringent and slightly puckery. Couldn’t really tell this was a stout before the barrel treatment, as there are virtually no roasted/coffee/chocolate components anymore. Average carbonation, medium body, oily texture. Nice, but I wish there was more balance.

angel77 (950) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 13, 2014
Botella de 50 cl en llamas, del rincón de la cerveza. mayo de 2013. buena cerveza con sabores tostados y algo quemados además de cierto toque dulce. cuerpo medio con 8.5 vol que se notan bastante bien. Sabores ligeramente a madera y licor de vino de los barriles. Mejor que la gypsy juice por el toque de barril. Para repetir sin problemas.

jdb288 (519) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle from my man Countbeer. Pours muddy black/brown with frothy tan head. Aroma is vinegar, dark red wine, some cherry. Taste is big, sour punch in the mouth. Lots of tartness. I wanted more balance but this definitely leans towards a ’sour’ rather than a ’stout’. Perhaps I am just not familiar enough with the genre. Points for the wine influence - I liked the deep flavors imbued from the barrel aging.

berlinoise2go (613) - NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle (50cl). Black colour. Inch-thick beige head, settles as a thick ring, some lacing. Fruity and mildly sour aroma with malt and soy sauce. Medium body, soft/flat carbonation, wine-like mouthfeel. Taste is like a mixture of red wine, stout and sour ale, somewhat weird, but also reasonably well-balanced (leaning towards the acidic). Long aftertaste of malt and red wine vinegar.

Inbreak (2129) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 10.01.2014, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Big light brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is kind of funky sweet fruity, mild brett, red wine, grass, red berries, dark malts, sorrel, oak, hints of paint. Taste is kind of grassy, berry skin, grass, red wine, sorrel, mild brett, dark malts, oak. Medium bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Nice enough.
