Bottle from Slowbeer. Unconventional stout. Aromas of green apple, caramel, chocolate. Taste is sweet and sour, with long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy head.

Not very foamy, dark, rich a bit soar, but fresh taste. Good for slow enjoying.

teorn88 (6463) - Out of the EU, 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.

Well fuck me. This is a pretty special beer.

Pours and looks like a porter. Smells like a sour. Has the alcohol of an imperial stout. Tastes like a 50% imperial stout 50% Russian River Consecration mix. Pretty amazing.

Pours a jet black with a brown head. Aromas of tart fruit, chocolate bars, twangy berries. Taste is similar - but with way more chocolate. Still, not sweet at all. Pretty sour with a nice puckering finish. This was an amazing experience. O fo sho!

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2013
dark brown, thin cream head, large bubbles. Lots of coffee rounded with fruit, red berries, earthy and balanced. Flavor very balanced, plum and cherry brownie with clay mid, awesome Brett, acetic, and cocoa finish, lightest coffee roast. Reminds of drinking the tolcomotto stout over the Stockholm harbor sunrise at 130am with ohmper. God damn, exceeds -the style’s bar--madrugada--and on par my best memories of P4.

Hermod (6416) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2013
50c bottle, BBE 2018, says the label. Poured black with a brown, lacing head. Aroma is sour, bretta noticeable, roasted malt and grapes. Lovely. Flavor has bretta more evident, red wine like notes, wood, grapes, cocoa and roasted malt. hoppy, dry finish, quite tart/sour with grapes. One of the more complex beers I have had in a while. Full bodied. Very tasty!

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends. Pours black with a short white head and 2mm of lingering lacing. Big brett, zest, plum and grape aroma. Taste is big dark fruits, nice sourness and lots of red wine vinous flavours: plum, grapes and black currant. Lingering sourness, light bitterness. Very refreshing for a dark beer.

Gran sabor y muy buen aroma. Con un retro gusto a vinate impresionante quizás menos equilibrada que que la big worse del mismo estilo!

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.

50 cl. bottle split with Marko as his 3500th rating @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Crazy ugly label both drawing as well as colour design, the whole deal. Pours black with little and disappearing beige head. Nose is very heavy on the typical standard USA brett – still baffled by the fact that sour beers have become so homogonous – mixed some yoghurt lactic sour wine, quite a standard USA profile, sour malts, tannins and sticky sweet red wine – apparently Brunello. Taste carries trough similar, very heavy, lots of USA-style Brett in here, strongly yoghurt lactic red wine, sour thicker malts, barrel, sourness has been upped as is customary, light roast, citrus sourness,… Oddly fuller brett body as usual. Good but I am still expecting sours to be unique brews – probably shouldn’t have started out with lambic’s – my bad.
