bursprak (1179) - Aarhus, - JUN 10, 2014
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.

AshtonMcCobb (3675) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - opaque black with an attractive crema head. Nose - tangy fudge, then possibly red fruit. Light wood. Taste - strawberry laces, then coconut, then toffee. Palate - medium to full bodied with a tangy texture and a dry tangy balanced finish. Overall - this is such an individual beer, it challenges the palate and the brain.

torleifm (18) - NORWAY - APR 18, 2015
Kullsvart med brunt skum. Syrlig aroma med noe oksidasjonspreg. Ellers brent malt, soya, vinøs. Litt krydret aroma og funk. Smaken preges av brent malt og en del syrlighet fra melkesyrebakterier. Samtidig nok sødme til å skape en ok balanse. Noe treverk. Tjære.

umich03jm (2552) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2015
Bottle. Very dark brown pour with a 1 finger head that fades very slowly to a film. Aromas are belgian chocolate, coffee, slightly spoiled milk, burnt caramel, and wood. Tastes very odd. Not sure what I expected but it really does taste like a sour milk stout. The sweet and sour mix is odd. The nice chocolate and coffee taste keeps this from being undrinkable.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 3, 2015
Draught at Mikkeller&Friends. Dark brown, lovely lasting tan head, nose is coffee and dark chocolate, flavor is more lush Belgian chocolate, not getting any sourness from the wild yeast. Big body, lush, smooth mouthfeel, long chocolate finish. Marked down for lack of sour note
