Tap @ Fairbar. Pitch black pour with a tan head. Nose has loads of roast, vanilla, coffee and some light funk from the lacto. Taste is fairly sweet with vanilla, coffee, roasted malts and slightly funky. Sour stouts are generally not my thing but this one is not that bad. Probably because of the very light tartness.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours quite dark, black in glass, whit a big dense tanned head. Smell of coffee, roast, hints of milk and chocolate, dark malts and toast. Moderate sweet, some tart sour milky tones, almost like yoghurt, then alot of toast, coffee and chocolate. Moderate bitter finish. Quite unusual. I really liked the sour twist in this one

Bottle. Pretty much black, tan head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of raisins, plums, port wine. Taste has softly sour stewed prunes on a roasty cocoa background. Very tasty.

thewolf (11259) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours completely, utterly opaque black with a small, staying, creamy, cappuccino head. Aroma has lovely coffee, soy sauce, roasted malts, milk and some fruity and light lactic tartness. Medium carbonation, very dry and actually kinda light mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of roasted malts, lactose, quite tart and rather fresh in its tartness. Cocoa, coffee and vinious in the finish. Weird and kinda lovely.

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.

tmrmwel (1058) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2014
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

dalfaro86 (305) - Mexico City, MEXICO - OCT 25, 2014
Pours a black brew with a big brown head with regular retention, aroma is moderate to heavy sweet, low acidic and low bitter with caramel, chocolate, wood, vainilla, darl fruits and sour fruits, robust bodied, flavor is moderate to heavy sweet, moderate acidic and low bitter with a sweet and sour finish and a long aftertaste, interesting experiment, good but lacks refinement

ClubGonzo (4236) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2014
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.
