JorisPPattyn (7722) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2013
Medium cream-brown head over brown to black beer with faint ruby highlights. Outspoken heavy red wine and Brett-infested oak vat nose - but gorgeous. Faraway roasted/burnt notes. Lactic acid and red fruit - pretty superb. Vinous, but predominantly stout-ous taste, with bitter, harsh wood-aldehyde-solvent-burnt flavours. Some red fruit all the same - as sourcherries forgotten in a bottom of old beer in an old barrel. Quite slick, but sharp at the same time - again the impression of aldehyde/solvent/ketone. Astringent, and quite carbonated feel. Smells fantastic, tastes overripe. Remind me not to buy fragrance from a Rom...

Bov (9072) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2013
from Erzbierschof - dark beer with a poor head retention; shy woody aroma with sourish notes and black chocolate as well; pretty astringent, full-bodied, some sweetness and a long lingering biting sourness, chocolate and prune - complex but with a bit too much wood presence

Slayer85 (1041) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. An almost opaque black beer, with an average sized, frothy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting, light brown head. The aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, caramel, hint of chocolate/coffee), moderately yeasty (barnyard, horse), with notes of red wine/Brunello, cherries, apple, wood/oak, berries, hint of alcohol. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, average/lively carbonation, semi-dry long finish with moderate bitterness, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Interesting experiment, with a lot of red wine and almost not stouty at all, almost undefinable style. Suggested.

teorn88 (1916) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
On tap at CBC, London. It pours a very dark brown almost black colour with a one finger beige head. Aroma is a perfect mix of brett, red wine and dark fruits. Band-aid and port characteristics. Taste is same mix of notes with little bitterness, figs, brett and port wine. Brett and red wine flavours tend to dominate. Mouthfeel is silky with good carbonation. Overall, fantastic beer with lots of complexity and balance.

Idiosynkrasie (3264) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear deep reddish darkest brown with average, frothy to creamy, well lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Dark malty aroma with dry, tannic, red wine notes in the background, minimally tart, bretty overtones. Taste is dark malty with a fruity touch of cherries, dry, minimally tannic, sourish to tart, minimally bretty, hints of red wine in the finish. Slightly unbalanced, too sour for a Stout, dark malt is mostly hidden.
