4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
NYE bottle share at Proof. Deepest of opaque browns with a thin white-tan head and thin tan collar. Aroma is like a port, dark fruit, deep red wine, some woodiness. Taste is extremely tart. Vinegary almost. Iím getting some of the wine like characteristics, with some roasted malt too. Very interesting flavor. Medium carbonation and medium-thick body.

Pours headless. Nose of blackberries. Some sweetness along with the tart yet somewhat flat through the finish with a lasting club soda completion. Iím not terribly fussed about the beer, especially considering the cost. Purchased at The Strath at $19.90.

750ml bottle in a tasting glass. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of tartness/sourness, roasted and dark malts, and some dark fruits. Flavor a nice blend of the dark malts and sourness. Average texture. A really cool beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear dark brown in color. Very tart nose with lots of raisins, prunes and barrel aromas. Pretty much no roasted malts so this is much more sour than stouty... This is the case with the flavour as well. Well ballanced and complex with lots of vinous and tart, sharp and zesty flavours. Nice mouthfeel - half fizzy half creamy.. Long juicy aftertaste. Good stuff!

Shared 750 ml bottle, at Cafť Sara, Oslo. ABV was 7%. Black colour, low beige head. Lovely brett aroma, also oaky and roasty notes, brandied fruits, quite complex. Sour flavour, lemony notes, the roasty notes are quite subdued. Tart finish.

http://imgur.com/YUh0MuH -- Bomber. Pours opaque black with thin, off-white head. Smells of funk and cherry. Cold screwing with my nose ATM, hard to identify more. Drinks with a sour bite and no lingering bitterness. Medium bodied. Tastes of wood, cherry, and a bit of roasted malt. Sour notes linger nicely on the lips and tongue.

Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown, almost black color, with a thin rim of light brown head. Aroma is mostly tart, kinda dry. Flavor is very sour right up front with a light smoky dark burnt background. Medium body with a lingering tartness and a very faint hint of smoke. Little to no carbonation, almost flat, but not in a bad way. Delicious!

Brought this to share with my favorite brother and krompt. Favorite brother could only drink a sip so had to settle with drinking the rest with krompt. I like sours and I love stouts but I do not like sour stouts. Didnít work for me and extremely pricey.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle. Pour a very dark brown with light head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of balsamic vinegar. Flavors of vinegar and green wood. Only a hint of stout left to appreciate. A good salad dressing but not much of a beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home, picked up at Tomlinsonís, Inverness. It pours near black with a quickly dissipating light tan head. The nose is oak, roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, coconut and lactose. The taste is tart, roasty, acidic, lactic, oak, cherry skin, plum skin, red grape, toast, light vanilla, sherbet and Granny Smith apple with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. A Jekyll & Hyde sort of beer....tame oaky/roasty nose, then acidic and tart in the mouth-hole. Interesting stuff for sure, but I doubt I would drink too much of this, as itís fairly acidic.

Quite tart/sour, in the vein of Rodenbach or La Folie. Still, a richness comes through and it paired well with the grilled spiced beef we were eating.
