Guys, this is a STOUT! Certainly debatable whether it could be an imperial stout, a foreign stout or a sweet stout, but this is not a sour/wild ale. WTF? This is really good, different, disturbing. It starts as a good imperial stout, with dark malts on the nose, a herbal tone, old fruits, tobacco and booze. Shiny black with a very respectable creamy brown head. It is sour, milky sour, yougurt, plenty of lactic acid suggestions, and a good amount of herbs among its imperial stoutness. The herbal bitterness is a bit disturbing, but it does not put me off. Full bodied, oily, it does carry some carbonation. Another beauty of those magnificent Danes and their lovery concoctions.

Bottle. Pours pitch black, with an enormous brown creamy head receding to finger thickness. Aroma is sweet dark malts with cocoa, muscovado, wooden barrels, vanilla, coffee and tobacco. Full creamy body, with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is burned malts and lactic acid, coffee, musty earth, wooden barrels, as well as leather, kandi and dark fruits.
Tobacco and wooden barrels through the finish.

This is weird as fuck. Unbelievable on the nose. Top notch dark fruits. But the taste is so conflicting. I genuinely can't tell if i love or like it. Not overly sour. Drink it for sure and make up your own mind

Bottle. Black body, large light beige head. Nose is chocolate, leather, yoghurt, nuts, caramel, licorice and hints of biscuits, toffee and grains. Taste is chocolate, yoghurt, tart lactic tones, straw, charcoal, wood, vanilla, coffee and hints of earthy leaves, metal and raisins. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Complex, original and still very drinkable. Well done.

Doskonala rzecz. Niesamowicie wygladajace piwo. Czarne niczym RIS. Zapach takze powala i niesaintensywny jest. Zwlaszcza te kwasowe dzikie drozdze sa wyczuwalne i to juz po syknieciu kapsla uwydatnia sie ten zapach. Smak mistrzostwo laczenia. Stout z wyczuwalna kawa i ciasteczkami Oreo, do tego smietanka mleczna i kwasnosc czerwonego cierpkiego wina. Wszystkie doznania przenikaja sie nawzajem i zaskakuja z karzdym lykiem. Palonosc portera w pierwszym lyku potem kawa i kwasnosc winna. Na koncu troche rozgrzewa moc alkoholu, ale jest dobrze schowany za poterzna dawka tych skladnikow skladajacych sie na to wysmienite piwo. Bardzo polecam, bo przypadnie do gustu milosnika Lambickow jak i Stoutow.

375ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large tan head, which lasts very well and leaves good lacing. Roasty malt, coffee, hints of oak and some funky, sour notes make up the aroma. Slightly sour lemon curd up front gives way to sweet milk chocolate and oak in the mid-palate. The finish is an odd blend of coffee and sourness. This is definitely a weird one. There are a lot of things going on: barrel-ageing, sourness, coffee and lactose, a nice effort but not great

There are a lot of things going on: barrel-ageing, sourness, coffee and lactose, and it does seem a little confused. On the whole though it does work fairly well.

Draught, 9.5%. Weak fruity aroma, hint of berries. Black colour. Big stable creamy brown head. The flavour starts off sour and roasted. Turns even more roasted, then more sour and quite fruity. Quite complex. Late roasted note and more fruit. Does not taste its ABV. Quite refreshing.
