JoeMcPhee (10129) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2009
Deep black pour. No head. The nose is fairly odd. Lots of burnt rubbery chewy character. A bit of acetone and a heavy solventy nose. Flavour of caraway, roasted malt and burnt rubby. Very oxidized nose with lots of solventy/autolyzed character. Salty with soy and a long rubbery finish. This beer’s good days are all behind it.

Bottled from an awesome trader. Opens with quite a hiss, a lot of carbonation is left. This tastes way older than 6 years; alas, it is not. Aroma is loaded with soy sauce, beef with broccoli, but, unlike some infected American beers I’ve had, the "chinese food" type notes actually work for this one. Kind of salty. I dig it. The flavor is a bit subdued in the middle, but leads with a strong oxidized funk and ends with an actual roasty, dry stouty note than provides a sigh of relief after the intensely oxidized body. I quite like this, though others don’t.

Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Pours dark brow with a tan head. Smells of cherroes, woody, lactic. Tastes sherry and on the acidic side with some earthy undertones on the finish. This morphed into something nice.

Bottle thanks to mesandsim had at home with them. Alround rating: Awsome stuff, no longer anything like a dry stout, Oxidised, sherry, very reminisant of just being in the Kulminator.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle thanks very kindly to Alex for this rarity. Dark chestnut brown with a very good tan head. This has aged really well without a doubt. Full of sherry and madeira, plenty caramel, fruity and a little tarty. Slight minty note is the only unpleasant sign of age but it’s faint enough not to spoil it. Luscious mouthfeel. Clean finish. Good stuff. Thanks a lot Alex.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Semi-aged sample - bottled in July 2003. Pours a clear, warm mahogany with a reddish hue and a neat, beige head. Actually a surprisingly light body. Very vinous accents - balsamico - reminding me mostly of a Flemish Sour, albeit some lightly burned notes of malt appear in the finish. According to the label it’s meant for cellaring, but I doubt if the acidity is intentional. But generally I find it very lovely. Thanks to Bov for this. 100306

Oakes (19370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2004
Toffee brown colour with haze. Toffee aroma with a hint of liquorice. Rich, slightly smokey toffee malt flavour.

rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2004
Bottled. Dark brown, tan head. A little phenolic along with quite some roasted malt. Chocolate notes, and a little vineous. A bit stale bitterness in the finish.

Nate (4296) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2004
Malty deep aroma, prune, acid, herbal notes. Chocolate. Dark brown-black with tan head. Watery with medium carbonatio. Starts tat, vinuous, with prune raisin tart. Tobacco and tart finish. Dry chalky bitter after. Decent, but a little eccentric.
