HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
August 19, 2012 - on draught at King William IV Witterfest. Opaque black, minimal off-white fizzy head. Smells ... sour; fruity lemon funk, background roasty grain sweetness in behind... not all that stout-y, more like a funky cherry-ish beer with background moderate roast - stout? really? okay - but it IS sour. Taste - weird, like a black IPA with sour fruit and brett wildness (I sure hope they gave me the correct beer). Sticky, slick, lively, long acidic dry finish .... good. No matter WHAT beer it may have been.

On tap at the King William IV - Witterfest. Opaque black beer, little tan head. Light softish palate. Mild dark malts, a little coffee and cream. Loads of brett but mellow and well integrated. Soft and semi dry finish with a nice red wine fruity taste. Nice beer!

Theydon_Bois (9528) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Keg at Witterfest (Fano meet the brewer), King William IV - 20/08/12. Very dark brown with a thin tan head. All brett nose, hard to pick anything else out - fantastic ! A little sweet malt at the rear. Hops come through in the taste with caramel and malt, brett still well represented but more in the background. Chocolate and a little wood in there. Medium bodied with an excellent creamy feel.

Scopey (7176) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2012
Keg at Fanø Meet the Brewer, King William IV. It pours very dark brown, with a thin off-white head. The nose is sticky dark fruit (cherry, plum, blackcurrant and such like), roasted malt, some tanginess, coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is tangy dark fruit; plum, raisin, grape, cherry, port/vinous, light sourness, roasted malt, coffee, charcoal, touch of balsamic vinegar and salted liquorice, with some alcohol warmth in the finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Good balance, interesting and pretty damn flavoursome.

thepeter (280) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2012
Black small head with a bit of lace. aroma was all brett. Taste was brett heavy and right away, followed by citrus malt, and a bit of coco and maybe some smokey meaty flavours. Palate with light medium a bit fizzy but nice and refreshing for a stout.

Keg @ Witterfest ’12, King William IV. Pours jet black with a small mocha tan head. The nose is a huge wallop of brett. Further aromas of rich bitter chocolate, smoky bacon. The taste is also brett-forward, plenty of wood, chocolate and hints of chili flakes. Mildly vinous and sweet. Medium body, actually quite drinkable. Soft carbonation. Nice, very unique tasting.
