Bottle. As Special Reserve Bomba Generation 4. A more or less black one, with a small, tan head. The aroma is very vinous and soapy, reminiscent of lemongrass. The flavor has lots of chocolate, coffee and molasses, as well as vinous notes. Full body, soft carbonation and quite sweet on the palate. Lasting finish. Interesting this one, but rather weird, even though theres a nice brett touch. Not my kind of beer this one, still nice in a way. 150328

Une bouteille partage, merci. Un liquide brun qui ne mousse pas. Un nez de chocolat, de raisin, de brett et de tabac. La bouche est trop aqueuse malgr des saveurs intressantes de chocolat et de tabac, a ne sauve pas la mise.

SlovakSniper (5390) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
Une bouteille partage Portland. Embouteille le 18/07/14. Robe presque noire et mousse phmre. Au nez, des armes de malts rtis avec une pointe de rglisse, du bois, du caramel noir et une tonne de bretts. En bouche, cest fruit, pic, rti, chocolat, amer. Au palais, cest huileux avec un corps de moyenne densit et un ptillement modr. En finale, cest un peu mdicinal. Intressante exprience pour moi qui naime pas trop le style.

torleifm (18) - NORWAY - FEB 13, 2015
Svart med beige-brunt skum. Syrlig, brett-preget ogf ruktig, med toner av brent malt og ryk i aroma. Syrlig anslag, litt oljete munnflelse, brent ettersmak. Mister litt stout-preget, men en godt og artig l.

Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. Black, foamy brown head, light lacing. Aroma is coffee, softly sour, musty malts. Body is medium, slightly foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is medicinal, sour lemon, tangy brett, background stout. OK for a style Im not that fond of.
