Bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma was vinegary with blueberries and some hints of chili peppers. Flavor was sour and acidic with vinegar, blueberries, peppers and light cocoa. degbert (1773) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle. Nothing should be purplish brown. That’s just WRONG. No head -- there are some bubbles, but they go away quickly. Nose is berry vinegar, red wine, brown sugar, and red cabbage. On the tongue -- holy GODS, that’s weird. It’s like blueberry chili sauerkraut laced with stout. It shouldn’t work, and it almost doesn’t work, but it sort of does work. This is not something I want to drink twice, but it’s worth it just for the experience. Finish is kind of hollow, but really, at this point, who the hell notices? This beer be wack.

Love sour beers and this fit the bill. Almost like balsamic vinegar in terms of tartness. Little chili heat at the end. Wouldn’t call it a stout but a very cool weird beer. abcfan (920) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Wow, this is a mess. Aroma isn’t terrible; mostly sour grapes / wine. Taste is full of vinegar / sour. Finishes with some heat and burning. bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2015
This beer was just like the name suggests, a nightmare. Brought to a tasting and all 8 of us agreed. Appearance wasn’t bad with a brown, red, purple thing going on and tiny tan head. Aroma was pure vinegar with hints of blueberry present. Flavor was vinegar, acid, and some sweetness and blueberry. Body was full and texture was thin for what the bottle says is a stout with peppers and blueberry. Soft carbonation and bitter, acidic, sour finish. Quite simply the worst beer I’ve ever drank. I felt like I was sipping on a bottle of balsamic.

Medium body, intense flavor, thin texture.
As acidic as a strong vinegar, some sweet in background.
Complex flavor, balsamic with lemon.
Interesting, not pleasant unless used to season your salad.

I felt that I had to rate this beer because I feel it is unjustly rated very low for some unknown reason. Batch #3. It is one of the most sour and acetic vinegary beers that I’ve ever had. Funky roasty chocolate meets blueberry vinegar syrup. Like a really intense Kombucha. Holy heck sour. But all the flavors still show. I don’t get any spice, but whatever happened... it works. If Cantillon had put their label on this, this is an instant top 100. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Wasn’t sure what i was gonna get with this, but wasn’t expecting this. Strong vinegar and blueberry present in aroma and taste. A small warming feeling at the end. Dry finish. Lingering chili heat. Nothing here makes me think stout. Not good. hackobock (4029) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2015

Black with a small off-white head. Aroma is vinegar, thinner, faint notes of chocolate and dark berries. Taste is acidic, vinegar slight berries. Finish is very acidic, like pure vinegar but harsher...
At least they got the name right...
Acidic and burnt aroma, vinegar-y taste. So Acidic that my jaw clenched, I felt like a baby tasting lemon for the first time. Behind all the acid was something fruity, but it didn’t matter.
