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.

jesperhammer (4228) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2012
23-NOV-2012, bottle @home, from Ølbutikken. Unclear, dark brown with low, very low light brown head. Tart and funky aroma. Red wine, brett, roast, milky roast. Taste much the same. Vinegar. Very wine-like. More tart than expected. Funny mix with the roast. OK body, soft carbonation but just enough. Very fine brew.

Slayer85 (1051) - 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.

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?)

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2013 Pours a deep black with no sediments or anything, just pure black. Aroma is really fun with more wine than anything but you can still feel a bit of the stout character if you try really hard. Head retention is not that good and it leaves some lacing but nothing impressive. Taste is dry, sour and a little bitter. You can sense some sweetness but nothing distracting and also a little roasted malt. Closest I can think of right now in terms of a similar experience would be a really nice Flanders red but with a little roasted malt mixed in. Tart and vinous, this feel a lot different than most sour stouts I have had to date. Awesome!

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 it’s way more vinous than tart), fruits and chocolate. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Winey mouthfeel. Dry finish. Really complex and intensely winey. That’s not a Stout, but that’s really good and pretty unique!
