guzgorog (529) - FRANCE - OCT 7, 2015
Superbe couleur brune très foncée avec des reflets, fine mousse chocolat qui disparait totalement. Nez complexe, boisé, vinaigre, vin rouge, cerise. Attaque acide, la bouche est boisée, pomme, cerise, vin rouge et reboisée, vinaigre. Longueur redoutable et bouche évolutive, superbe. La pétillence est très bonne (à moins que ce ne soit l’acidité qui donne cette sensation). Bière très bien travaillée, très bonne.

matbli (157) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 3, 2015
bottle, pours cloudy brown with fast falling creamy colored head. Aroma of milk chocolatte, red wine, vanilla, bourbon, cherry and vinegar. In taste nice ballance of medium sourness and medium sweetness with a touch of bitterness and tartness in the finish. Quit mild version of an sour ale with a medium body, but still very complex.

Lukasmh (727) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours murky reddish brown with non existing head. Aroma had metal. But as it warmed up it disappeared and it grew a lot. Vinegar, toffee malt, raisins, vanilla, oak, bourbon. Taste is sweet, vanilla, oak red wine, and then really vinegarish and sour. Some dark sweet, raisins, coconut notes and bourbon. Burn sugar and figs. Bitter tannings in dry finish and high carbonation.
