2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
(Verzet Oakey Mokey Wiskey Stout) Bottle 375 ml from ElManana, thanks! Served into a snifter, ABV 7.5%
Dark brown colour on the body, almost black, with a tall and thick tan head. Very good retention, medium lacing left around the glass.
Sour-ish notes on the aroma that seem to fade out as the beer sits in the glass but still present during the whole drinking. Some light roasted malts coming from the back. No whiskey notes whatsoever on the aroma.
Taste is sour, definitely infected this one. Grape notes, nothing else to taste, the sourness covers everything. A pity for the aging on whiskey barrels.
Medium thin body, tart on the palate, notable carbonation.
I hope the brewers will acknowledge the fact the beer is infected and won’t say "this is what we were aiming for. I was looking forward to drink this one, unfortunately is a disappointment. Almost undrinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark ruby, medium head, grate lacing. Aroma: very fruity with a special twist typical for wild yeast (although I have no clue whether they have been used). Taste: flowers and herbs coupled with wild bitterness. A very interesting beer but I have expected something different from a stout. Also, I didn’t notice any whisky although it apparently has been aged in whisky casks.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottled @ Nuetniegenough. Sampled about 5cl. The aroma has tart citric hints, some tones of wood and roast but that’s far away. Hazy, dark brown coloured beer with no head. The taste is citric sour, some vinegar, tart. Not much there which reminds me of stout or whisky. According to waiter this is due to risk with barrel aging. But if you use decent whisky barrels there’s no chance, because 50-60% alcohol in the wood usually kills all possible infections. So guess they were old barrels then. Anyway. Infected stuff nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
7.5% shared by Tadg. A very dark reddish brown, aged in whiskey barrels. Tart sour cherry acetic nose. Med-light bodied, sweet sour and tart - very tasty with cherry & earthy barrel notes. A bit of the peaty character comes through with a touch of chocolate.

Dark color, decent beige foam. Surprising sour, oud bruin-ish aroma, probably the oaky touch. Red fruit, malty undertones. Roasted, woody flavours, hint of chocolate. Medium body.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Gedronken op Zwevegem bierfestival. Aroma licht gebrande mout. Uiterlijk pek zwart je ziet er niet door, kraag verdwijnt zeer vlug. Smaak is zuur doet me aan een oud bruin denken, is volgens mij helemaal geen stout. Mist body. Een tegenvaller
