3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Hazy, darkest brown colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white to beige head. Sweetish, vinous, dark malty aroma, hints of red wine, grapes, red and blue berries, milk chocolate. a touch of lactobacilli. Taste is initially dry, vinous, yeasty, dark malty basis, subtle sweetness, hints of chocolate, later more harmonious with additional woody, oaky notes; lively carbonation, some biting alcohol in the finish. Complex, slightly inharmonious, requires familiarization.

Bière prometteuse sur papier, mais décevanve en bouche. Légère acidité en bouche. Les apports du murissement en fûts sont difficilement perceptibles.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like yoghurt. Looks moderately dark, with a small amount of foam. Tastes also very sour, unbalanced. Not special. Alcohol taste is present in the end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, caramel, some dark fruit and wood. Sweet flarvor that ends up dry, tart and bitter too. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. A nice and quite interesing impy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours mostly black but has a red tint. Huge beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and white wine. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits, vanilla, licorice and white wine flavours. Full body and medium carbonation. Has a long sour aftertaste...the barrel aging I’m guessing. Well, it’s not bad, but it’s not super either. I don’t think the white wine barrel aging is doing it any favours. This was €14 and I can get 3 bottles of Black Albert (which is better) for the same price, so I won’t be getting this one again.

A good sour stout. Roast aroma, licorice, white wine barreling in the finish. A sipper. Black with off white head.
Thanks for sharing, Pino.

Opaque black - brown beer with a big fluffy tan head. Light palate, crisp and semi dry. Somewhat left field this beer - a juxtaposition of dark malt with a trace of roast and creamy white wine! Trace of wood, Finishes slightly spicy with woody bitterness and bitter linger. Unusual beer, just about hangs together and has an overall ’dark lambic’ vibe.

500ml bottle bought at the Old School. Such a nice one!. Roasty, caramel, some sourness. Delicious. Smells much better with temperature.
