Scopey (7375) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2012
Keg at Fanø Meet the Brewer, King William IV. It pours very dark brown, with a thin off-white head. The nose is sticky dark fruit (cherry, plum, blackcurrant and such like), roasted malt, some tanginess, coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is tangy dark fruit; plum, raisin, grape, cherry, port/vinous, light sourness, roasted malt, coffee, charcoal, touch of balsamic vinegar and salted liquorice, with some alcohol warmth in the finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Good balance, interesting and pretty damn flavoursome.

Leighton (11824) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2012
On tap at King William IV, London. Pours dark brown with a creamy, beige head. Big sour nose, some dark berries and dark malts. Medium sweet flavor, moderately tart with faint roast, some brett bite. Medium to full bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Lightly warming finish with more tart berries, restrained roasted malts, definite brett tang, some dark grapes. Great stuff. The brett adds a distinctive freshness.

jredmond (5610) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2013
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.

Davros (2024) - 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.

Travlr (13168) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle. Murky almost completely black color, thick fluffy brown head, delicate lacing. Aroma of dusty and funky red grapes, chocolate bars. Taste is funky and slightly sour dark milk chocolate, port wine, coffee. Nice.

chimpgibbon (329) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Fudge and balsamic and sharp wine tang almost pull this one off but not quite for me. The wine lingers too long and is astringent by the end. Nonetheless a respectable effort.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle shared at RBAG 2013. Very dark brown, pretty murky, with a light brown head that laces sparingly. aroma is distinctly bretty with rich roast and light sour cherries. The palate delivers funky sour edges to a solid lovely stout base. Really tasty. as an aside, I find it interesting that at 8.5% this beer is listed as a stout, whereas the Fort Garry Kona Imperial stout weighs in at a whimpy 6.5% yet is designated "imperial". Not that it matters, but it seems pretty arbitrary.
