3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Dark brown with a short-lived head. Intensely sour aroma and flavour, very lactic, and quite acetic, eclipsing any dark malt character. Too unbalanced for my tastes.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes - Sample pour of dark brown/amber with a small white head. Nose is soy, teriyaki, sour fruit notes, cherries, and malty sour bread. FLavor is sharp sour, dark fruit, bready barnyard funk and tart cherries and raspberries. Pretty good, actually. Lighter body and smooth.

Dark pour. Light tan, foam head. Tartness, cheery aroma. Sour, tart, body is thin to medium, some bubbly both in appearance and palate. Sour start of palate and can feel it on the top of the roof towards the end. It is beautiful to see a sour stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml from Sam’s, Durham. These Bruery magillas aren’t cheap, nice as it is to see them floating around. Viscous black pour, minimal bubbles, looks potent. Nice nose, combined vinous and roasty, not so much like a typical Belgian stout as a pinot-aged foreign stout or something. Hefty body, quite oily in places but manages to have a nice kicking finish - a touch acetic, a touch dry. Flavors are fruitier than the nose would suggest, with hints of currant, balsamic, and red wine assuming more prominence than the roasted notes. Very nice beer.
