On tap at Borefts. Poured reddish brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of sweet sour fruit and some wooden notes. Flavour of sourness is fairly restrained and the sweet fruit blends quite well. Nice astringent aftertaste.

Draft @ Borefts 2012. A reasonably sized whale. A dark brown, light bordeaux creamy mocha head. Smells of mashed red fruits, light vinegar, dark fruits. Taste is sweet rotting red fruits and berries. touch licorice, dusty, sweet rotting candy, light sour, vinous touches, sweet vinegar in the front, lighter & sour in the back, dark fruits and dark malts, dark sugar, candy, some wood. medium body, easier than a regular one - glad to have tried this one and all versions now but this doesn’t entirely work.

Draught @ Borefts 12. Dark red-brown color, small beige head. Aroma is a bit sourish, a bit cellar and dusty. Taste malts, a hint of sourness but just slightly, little bit fruity as well. Low to medium body and carbo. Doesn’t taste like 10% ABV.

On tap in a snifter. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel and chocolate malts, a little sourness, and floral hops. Flavor strong on the malts and yeast, with some sourness that blends well. Smooth to thicker texture. A great beer.

A-- poured a dark, muddled brown color. Half a finger light brown head that went to a solid looking collar. Nothing too out of this world.
S-- Love the nose. Figs, raisins, rum port, sherry, chocolate, wood and touches of sourness and funk. Spent a solid 5 minutes smelling this as just the combo of sour and quad was a bit much to take at the time.
T-- Strange as heck taste. Like soured fennel somebody else remarked. just did not mesh with the nose. Like muddled cask wine left to sour and become medicine. Nose was gone in the taste.
M-- low carbonation and medium feel. Slight bits of oak and sourness in the finish but the good stuff was pretty much gone. More of a herbal medicinal feel in the mouth.
O-- Loved the nose and hated the rest. 2 oz was more than enough. Thrilled to try and experience but that was a strange beer.

Enjoyed on tap at Ebenezer’s pub. Expensive glass, worth having a masterful blend of cherry and wild yeast. An imperial stout aroma. Only a Little head on black coca-cola looking body. Very tasty and drinkable, and leaving some taste on my palate. Goldilocks not too sour and a little sweet.Very drinkable for this level of abv, which did not show its boozy side.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample from tap @Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours a hazed mahogny body, topped by low light chocolate-brown head. Complex aroma. Alcohol-soaked dark dried fruits, fortified wine, molasses, faint wood, and a nice subtle fruity sourness. Initial taste is dark fruity and quite sweet. Then tones of refined caramel/toffee, yeast, and dried wood. Vinous tones, reminiscent of vermuth. A fine fruity tartness underneath. Soft and creamy in the mouth. Dryish tart, almost funky fruit finish. Yes!
