thewolf (11643) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle, bought @ Etre Gourmet, Belgium.
Pours all-black with a large, frothy, light bubbly beige head. Light fizzy. Aroma has lots of oak and grapes, roasted malts, a touch of tartness. Medium, light fizzy carbonation, quite oily and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is vinious, roasted, grapes, quite a bit of tartness, chocolate, light coffee. Light nutty. Good, but a bit unbalanced.

hopdog (10255) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2014
500ml bottle. Poured a dark and murky brown color with a tan head. Not a gusher, but a creeper. Aromas of wood, chocolate, licorice, and white wine. Tastes follow with some dark fruits and caramel. Interesting.

Idiosynkrasie (5319) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2014
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.

Maarten1993 (632) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2014
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.

Habanero (3430) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2013
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.

StoutHead (897) - DENMARK - DEC 1, 2013
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.
