Boutip (5831) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle: Poured a black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of red wine and tart notes is dominant. Taste is also dominated by red wine notes with tart notes and light oak notes easily noticeable. The actual stout base beer is harder to distinguish with light dry roasted malt faintly discernible. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed but tart stout is not really a style that I find overly enjoyable.

14/IX/13 - on tap @ Hoppy Loft (Delirium cafť, Brussels) - BB: n/a (2013-853) Thanks to PriorL, Mathieu87 and Thomas for sharing the beer!

Clear dark brown beer, creamy beige to brown head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit smoky, ashes, caramel, mocha and coffee, sourish, sugary, bit funky, woody. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity, red sour berries, toast, mocha, coffee, woody bitterness, funky. Aftertaste: sourish, tobacco, earthy, bit smoky, red sour berries. Not really my thing, but itís an interesting experiment, thatís for sure.

Draught at Delirium Loft Brussels. Acidic, lactic nose, vinegar, chocolate, cherries. Great, complex nose. Pitch black with a super fine tan head. Flavors of chocolate, wood, vinegar, yogurt. Very tangy, lots of chocolate. Good, not completely exciting, but good.

tom10101 (5192) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle (500 ml). Reddish brown with a small beige head and light lacing. Aroma is intensely winey with oak, roasted malt, brettanomyces and light chocolate... very interesting. Taste is slightly sweet with red wine, oak, roasted malt, light tartness (but itís way more vinous than tart), fruits and chocolate. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Winey mouthfeel. Dry finish. Really complex and intensely winey. Thatís not a Stout, but thatís really good and pretty unique!

Bottled@PBF VIII. Black colour, small beige head. Aroma is tart wood, some herbs and wooden notes. Flavour is liquorice, tart wood, some liquorice and quite big on the sourness. Interesting attempt, but a bit too strange for me.
