Pours a deep umber color with three fingers of gaseous khaki foam. The nose has lots of vinous funk, sour cherry, earthy roast and a touch of composted dirt. The palate follows and is a bit murky and almost taste of rust. Sour vinous fruit with a heavy roast profile that just donít meld together harmoniously. Bit of a let down.

750ml bottle pours black with very small thin head. Nose is tart, artificial berry, a bit medicinal. Taste is roasty dark chocolate, ash, medium tartness, fruity. Finish is a smokey dark roast coffee, sweet chocolate, tart dark cherry. Gets better as it warms, but overall itís kind of strange. TBone (17440) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2013

Opaque black color, small brown color. Slightly tart, cellary, some toastyness. Medium-bodied. Malts, tartness, maybe some caramel. Well drinkable beer. Not too extreme and ABV is well covered.
Pours a dark black with a light brown head, aromas of the Pinot noir barrels definitely come through, nice fruit notes come through with a tart finish. Very good overall One2remeber (247) - Bucktown, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle. Batch #1, March/20013.
Sour pickles, straight, over powering Pedio.
Roasted chocolate, puckering sourness, no hops. Not as complex as I would like it to be. Simply straightforward.

Location/Date:Bottle shared with Dave on November 3rd, 2013.harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Appearance: Pours a dark black.
Aroma: Aroma of light roasty, some fruit.
Taste:Light medium wild yeast, light roast, some dark fruit.
Palate:Medium body, quick finish.
Summary: An interesting take on a belgium dark beer, the wild yeast is lightly funky. Not my favorite of ideas, but itís decent.
Batch #1, bottled March 2013
Itís black with a rim of tan foam and a mirrored surface, much different than the foam coming out of the bottle rather persistently. Smells of lacto, lemons, a little toasted malt, some funky resin, a little oak and some co2. Flavor is robust with coffee and soil, then thereís the lemony tart and some bitterness and harshness to it. Itís rather heavy with a low carb and a semi dry finish. Iím torn on this beer, it has the makings of a really nice sour stout, but lacks some of the subtlety I enjoy in some other examples for the malt portion. The bacterial characteristics are a little too dominated by bitterness and almost an aspirin character. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2013

Bottle. Pours dark black with light head. Smells tannin, oak, chocolate, and dark fruit. Started sweet red wine, and chocolate, finished oaky, mild hops, citrus, and caramel. Very interesting and quite tasty.
