Habanero (3569) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2013
On tap. Pours deep brown with a medium sized, off-white head. Aroma of brett, dark malt, caramel, vanilla, wood and plum + red berries. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry with some bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. A nice one. ★★★★

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - APR 5, 2013
Black liquid with a huge tan head. Aroma is fruity and sour. Brettanomyces you said? Took me by suprise actually. Taste is also brett-dominated at first. While the roasty flavours comes out towards the finish. Intense chocolate in the aftertaste. Interesting one, that really grew on me from sip to sip.

Tap at Mikkeller and friends. Black with a huge and dense Brown head. Aroma is dominated by brett, with some notes of fruit and herbs. The Brett is all over the flavor aswell, the stout character comes through in the finish. Roasted bitterness and coffee. Along with this is an acidic side note leading my thoughts towards Wild fermentation. Crazy beer, but not my style

Bottle courtesy of Dan. Pours a slightly reddish deep brown with a little head. Aroma is great - Orval-esque bretty fun, a little Rodenbach too, red berries, tart cherries and raspberries, some blackberries and red wine. Touches of chocolate, too. Taste is cracking too: tart berries, red wine, a little vanilla/oak, milk, some balsamic and a roast malt character too. Sour, dry, lingering tartness. Very nice indeed, I really like this one.

Bottle at home. Deep reddish brown, thick beige bubbly head with good lacing. Big woody brett, tart cherries, definite sourness, soft oaky vinous spice on the nose. Surprisingly dry, predominant flavours of oak, vinous cherry fruits, tart berry and a pretty austere roast backbone. Medium body, pretty well-carbonated. Lightly tart, lightly bitter on the finish. Dry, interesting, not what I was expecting!

Bouteille 500ml. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de levures sauvages légèrement fruitées et aigres (cerises sûres, pommes vertes, raisins vineux), moyen de malt rôti, moyennement boisé (fût de chêne vineux, bois humide) avec des notes de chocolat noir et de houblon herbeux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux notes vineuses. Goût de levures fruitées sauvages légèrement aigres/acides (cerises sûres, léger de raisins vineux, notes de pommes vertes) avec un goût boisé (fût de chêne vineux, présent en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de malt rôti doux avec un très léger goût de chocolat noir ainsi que des traces de pain grillé puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux appuyé par des notes d’alcool vineux. Post-goût moyen-long et aux notes sèches, légèrement aigre de levures fruitées sauvages (moût de cerises sûres et de raisins) avec une légère amertume de rôti, un léger goût boisé (fût vineux) ainsi que quelques notes d’alcool vineux et de chocolat. (Wild Dark Ale?)

Davros (2545) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2013
Pours black with a tan head. Lots of funky brett on the nose along with some roasted malt and cocoa. The red wine is subtle. A little oak presents itself. Same story in regards to flavours. Funky brett, a fair bit of roast, some acidity and booze. Pretty moreish stuff. I’d like more malt sweetness though.

Bottle shared with the RB crew at Torst. Pours a deep brownish black body with no head, thin lacing. Aroma is wine, oak, roast and light tartness. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of red wine, lots of tannins, wood, sour dark fruit and roast. Good stout.
