4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Rated on 24.2.2013.
Pours a black colour with a small white head. Aroma is strong with red wine notes, oak and dark chocolate. Flavour is very rich and big with roasted malts, red wine, tangy citrus, oak, cherries, dark chocolate, berries and tannine. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, vinous, quite complex finish. For a stout this is quite unique.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Aroma has sour berry notes, some oak and bilberries. Flavour has cherries, some bilberries and woodyu notes. Also some ashy notes at the end of the glass. A battle of stout and oud bruin. And unfortunately the last one is winning.
