DrnkMcDermott (3176) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Draft at Bavarian Lodge. Guess we missed connections again, Alum. Color is just a shade lighter than the average stout. Thin scraggles of foam. The smell brings up sour cherries with a little roasted malt and chocolate, then notes of red wine. Taste is all about the sourness; I can’t find much of the dark malt at first. The cherry yields to cream sherry. Quite puckery. A fuller texture than the average sour beer. Now I’m picking up some chocolate roast malt toward the end. And at the very bottom, a sense memory of Pop Rocks. Definitely a sipper.

kaserov (1107) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 15, 2018
Color marrón oscuro, algo rojizo si le da la luz, ligeramente turbio, sin apenas espuma. Una fina capa de un blanco sucio se adhiere a las paredes del vaso y hay algún que otro grumo o burbuja diminuta flotando. Sin carbonatación. Textura entre acuosa y oleosa, extraña pero interesante. Complejo aroma a vinagre, caramelo, salsa HP, paprika, fruto rojo indefinido y difuso, madera, toques de vino tinto. En boca es más ácida que dulce, aunque bien balanceada. Tiene el sabor del vinagre, pero no la acidez, no es tan extrema como esperaba. Fruto rojo indefinido y difuso, caramelo, toques de madera y vino tinto. Taninos ligeros al final del trago, con un mínimo de amargor. Regusto a fruto seco o algo similar. Postgusto ligeramente ácido y a fruto rojo. Trabajo de maestro. Compleja, disfrutable y con un balance entre dulzor y acidez digno de admirar. Esto solo me da ganas de probar la versión con frambuesa, que supongo será mucho más extrema e irregular.

cinek (501) - krakow, POLAND - JAN 11, 2018
tap/kufle i kapsle. rubinowe, klarowne, z refleksami, niewielka piana, która redukuje się niemal do zera. aromat lekko palony, drewniany, bombonierka z likierem wiśniowym, lekko alkoholowe, ale tak przyjemnie. w smaku kwaśne, z kawowym twistem na finiszu, nasycenie niskie, mega ciekawe

Zlotta (4148) - Hagen, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2018
0.33 l bottle from 'Prik & Tik' (Tongeren), best before January 2022. Clear, dark ruby with a thin, fluffy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, a little sourish, slightly fruity and quite vinous aroma of caramel, raisins, molasses, red wine, some oak and a touch of sherry. Quite sweet, slightly sour, vinous, malty and quite fruity taste of molasses, brown sugar, caramel, sherry, oak, red wine and a touch of vinegar, followed by a medium long, acidic, woody-dry and vinous finish. Medium to full body, quite astringent and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Great beer, starts so sweet-malty and only becomes acidic in the finish. Alvinne is capable of mastering such beers, and this one turned out fantastically.

Rask0lnikov (1582) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours dark reddish brown colour. No head. Oak, acidity, notes of berries, burnt brown sugar, notes of red wine in the aroma. Notes of redcurrants or cranberries, burnt brown sugar, slight tartness, notes of caramel. Acidity, tannins and oak in the end. Notes of berries, burnt caramel in the aftertaste. Rather medium bodied, complex ale. Miss the carbonation thow.

Icedwarf (1885) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2017
Zwart bier zonder schuim. Smaak is fris zuur fruitig en licht zoet met iets van bramen, krieken en iets van appelstroop of iets dergelijks. Misschien ga ik dit soort bieren toch nog wel eens waarderen. Best aardig.
