Flaska frn Brill. Riktigt mrkt brun, lgt snabbt frsvinnande skum. Stor rtig brettdoft och stor vins fatdoft. Smakbilden r verkligen vinliknande med mycket pinot-karaktr, laktosyrlighet och p det en aning brett som inte mrks lika tydligt i smaken, fat och p slutet en lite mjuk st russin- och rostad malt ton. Ltt ganska rund syra. Inte spretigt men mycket p en gng och verkligen vinst. Intressant och gott. Saknar kanske lite rundhet i kroppen annars kan jag inte klaga p ngot.

Maybe a bit too funky for my taste. I guess it was bound to happen. Brett, lacto, and pedio. Oh my! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, Thx Axnjxn! This was really nice. Excellent balance of roast, and funk. Really enjoyed. Lots of cherry, wood, and other funky notes. A bit of pinot noir too. One of the better sour stouts/porters/black beers I have had in a while. yum.

zgaier (1922) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Pours dark brown with a tan head and light sour, tart, oak aroma. Taste is oaky up front, with wine notes, sour and tartness, with dark fruits leading into the long, strong oaky, pinot noir finish.

Bomber sugared with Z, in honor of William Haynes, pours a dark black color with ephemeral java head. Nose is fruity and take on a bittersweet tangy aroma. Nose is sweet, and fruity with the oak and pinot easily appreciated. Finish is sour and ends on the oaky pinot notes. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Dfonorow (2153) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2014
Pre-DLD bottle share at Hampton Inn. Pour is dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma and flavor of toasted oat, dark caramel, cocoa powder, oak, and roasted malt. Finish is where the brett shines through.

hopwine (670) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - APR 26, 2014
Batch 1 (March 2013) Pitch black pour, decent tan head that dissipates. Nose is strong lemony acidity and ripe black cherry. Flavor up front is big cherry/Pinot, well balanced acidity, touch of vinegar, middle fades to vanilla-y oak, spice, flashes of mild nuttiness, and slight roastyness on a dry finish. Great structure and spritzy mouthfeel thanks to oaky mid palate and lively carbo. Ive never had anything quite like this...stupid awesome as usual from anchorage.

One year old. Black with a bit of cherry aroma. Nicely drinkable, alcohol warming. Moderate sour. Well put together.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 20, 2014
750ml bottle a bit of a gusher but not an issue - pours a deep chestnut brown with an off white head. I get a lot of fruity Pinot notes both on the nose and palate. Oak, fig, leather, combined with a perfect tartness, nice carbonation, medium bodied, more Pinot notes, freaking delicious.

Shared from a year old 750ml bottle. Looks like a stout, dark nearly opaque, with a foamy chocolate, mocha head. Smells like berries, chocolate, coffee, pinot and funk. This is a sipper, for an 8.5% sour it drinks pretty thick and the alcohol is present. Flavors of mocha, deep pinot and wine barrels, chocolate, espresso, figs, dates, plums and a touch of charcoal smoke and some sour funk at the end. The carbonation is on the lower side, but adds a nice touch to this incredibly complex beer. This is the first aged Anchorage beer Ive enjoyed. So delicious, so unique, so complex- I would drink this thing now, it has aged beautifully and I cant see it getting better. Perfect balance of fresh flavors and aged sour funk.
