750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a nice dark brown/black with a nice thick dark khaki head and couple spots of lace as it falls to a thick ring. The aroma is interesting. Lots happening. Tart, funky Brett, roasted malts and chocolate. There is a decent bit of barrel and oak. There is a weird sharpness to it that I’m not really following. The flavor is equally interesting. The Brett and tartness is really messy with a chocolate and roasted malt. This is all over the place. Decent oak and barrel integration, but the various fermentation techniques just add some messiness to it. The mouth feel is lighter medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly messy tart chocolate and roasted malt. Ugh. 6 4 6 4 14

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2017 Zwart bier, kleine crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Koffie, bittertje, zuurtje, beetje drop, vineus, eik. Fris-zurige aanzet die overgaat in ietwat licht bittere afdronk. Geslaagde combinatie. Wijnbarrels goed te proeven.

beskid (313) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2017
Draft at Mon Petit Cafe, Stuttgart. Nice lactic acid in aroma, balanced with dark bread notes. Well balanced, drinkable, I wouldn't guess it's 8.5%.

4.5

Taste has sour red berries, sweet red berries, red wine, tannin, oak wood, cocoa / chocolate, ends in sour dry notes and tannin. Bubbly carbonation with full body. Really complex brew, but nevertheless amazing.

The has an amazingly smooth finish for a sour, though there’s still a ton of conflicting flavors that grow and change as the beer develops. Stellar beer, even when you’re not in the mood for a sour.
