3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a black beer with a very small, beige head that vanishes quickly.
Smells funky, green apples, some red fruit, no roasted malt smells.
Tastes really sour.
leaves a sour, tangy palate.
If i would taste this blind i would be convinced that this is a geuze.

March 21, 2015. Bottle shared by linusb, thanks Linus!
Dark brown, almost black, with a minimal off-white head. Aroma is tart dark fruits, citrus, oak, yoghurt, don’t get so much of the stout notes. Taste is tart cherries, some sweet notes from dark fruits, dry oak and faint vinegar. Finish is dry woody and fruity. Light to medium bodied, average carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
March 21, 2015 - 2012 bottle from Nova. Dark pour with some head that faded quickly. Aroma was sour fruit, oak and yeast. Taste was quite tart initially and then moves into a strong oak. The oak lasts for a while and a slight amount of sweet malt comes out in the finish.

A: Cassis, chewing gum, plum T: Tart! Sweet after the tartness fall back... Nice palate, but a bit to tart for me... O: Nice sour and not what I was expecting. I expected far more roasted flavours.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: pours with almost no head, the tiny head is tan and fleeting though, the beer is very black with brown hues around the edges
Aroma: sour, tart, wild, I'm not picking up much of the stout aromas
Taste: very sour, very tart, slight coffee hints on the finish,
Palate: light mouthfeel, soft carbonation, tart aftertaste
Overall: not what I was expecting but delicious, much more of a sour beer than a stout, the color is almost deceiving to the taste
