Vestergaard (599) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a little, brown head. Aroma has a lot of stuff going on: Tart, slightly fruity, fresh oak notes, chocolate, deep roast and some funk. Taste starts off sour and refreshing, but turns deeper with some beetroot-like flavors, lots of choco and roast in a pretty sweet and dry finish. High bitterness in general as well. Both fresh and full body. Fairly high carbonation.

Lukasmh (284) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours pitch black with really nice thick and dense brown head. Aroma is very chocolaty at first, almost caky. Roasty malts, fresh oak, some fresh fruitiness, funk, green aroma, fresh coffee berries. Taste is acidic and tart at first and then turns chocolaty. Quite sweet, milk chocolate, funky, fresh berries, apples, bitter coffee and dry toasty finish. Only slight booze at it warms. Medium to full body. The first sour stout i liked, but still its weird.

Alexanderdahl (44) - DENMARK - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle Nose of creamy chocolate cake, some funky milky notes to it. notes of fresh oak wood. Sharp sourness at first sip, devolving into a smooth chocolate roastiness and finishes in a warm, soothing sour booze on the back of the tounge. First sour stout.

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle. Pitch black, small brown head. Aroma has a funky chocolatey base with a subtle coffee roast behind lots of fruity lacto-stuff as well as a fresh oaky undercurrent. Taste is surprisingly fresh and sour, opening into fruity stuff and ending on a sweet cocoa-note. Dry and roasty as well, on the finish, perhaps a soury booziness as well. Some berries and a subtle note of apple as well.

jesperhammer (3170) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2015
06-FEB-2015, bottle @Ulkløbben meeting, my place, from Mikkeller & Friends. Black with low Brown head. Roast, burnt, lactic. Milky, ash, tart but not really sour. A difficult style, Tart Imperial Stout. This one is a bit too rough for my sour-liking. Still a nice try, though.

Countbeer (4908) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle (37,5): Served in a shaker: Black beer with a medium sized creamy dark beige head. Aromas of liquorice, dark roast, bay leaf, dark liquorice candy, some rotten wood and nettle... Not much else. Flavours of roast, berries, yeast, liquorice, wood, bay leaf, bitters, some hops, nettle, bay leaf, hint if wilder yeasty tones... Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, roast, liquorice, wood and something funky. Low carbo, light watery/creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Out of tune: one dimensional stout with the dullest and boring sour (not really sour) tones. Not bad but quite boring.

skoisirius (1812) - Earth, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2015
375ml. Pours jet black. Hints of roasted malts, sweet malts, coffee and cocoa powder with some funk on the nose. Lots of the same in the flavor, very sweet up front with the lactic bacteria kicking in in the middle souring it out quite a bit. Coffee and chocolate tones buried underneath the sour. Pretty good.

From notes. Enjoyed at Sergio’s World Beer in Louisville, KY on 26 December. This was a bottle shared from behind the bar. The pour is a dark dark brown, maybe light black with a dense medium head and a beautiful lingering lace. The aroma is really roasty for what I was expecting. There is a little coffee and some chocolate before it moves through to a pretty solid sourness. I’m actually beginning to think that the sourness hinders it a touch. There is a chocolate coffee thing happening on the flavor, but the sourness and milky sweetness is a little bit of a fight happening. The mouth feel s really good. It’s got a nice viscousy thickness, with a great carbonation that coats well. The aftertaste is sour and lingeringly bitter from coffee.

Bottle. A dark brown beer with a dense, finger-thick light tan head. Lots of roasted malts in the aroma, with some sourish hints, lots of mocha and a hint of booze. Chocolate and coffee. The flavor has a nice sourness, still I think I’d prefer it without sourness. Mocha, coffee grit, some sweetness but it’s still rather dry. Sour coffee. Everlasting finish. A nice beer indeed, but I’d prefer to have it unsoured I think. Would be a challenge to drink a bottle on my own I think. 141231
