4.2
oobawa (1504) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2017
Exceedingly complex sour, mixing a cocoa-and-coffee-laced dark ale backbone with wickedly tart berry and citrus notes, crashing into one another on your palate like Romans and Gauls (Hardcore History, yo) until a wave of oak-and-vanilla-tinged whiskey booziness wipes the battlefield clean. (I know, I’m stretching the metaphor, but this bastard’s 9.666% and I’m 3/5ths through the bottle. Cut me some slack.) Fig, raisin, cherry, molasses, bread, lemon, and bourbon, all just ricocheting around your face until the bitter oaked fade closes out the night. Pretty opaque red-brown pour with a tan head and moderate lacing. Nose is tart cherry and Belgian dark ale sweetness. Perfect texture, creamy with a barely discernible alcohol warmth. Delicious.

czlowiekmotyka (356) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 4, 2017
Complex, engaging and interesting. Dark red/brown color with a quality lacing and low carbonation. Woody, vinegar, red fruit taste and aroma. I bet that fruits add more to the finish as it is a sour - one dimensional ride. Exceptional.

Defreni (3255) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2017
Fad: Sortbrun øl der ligner en stout i farve, men overhovedet ikke har den samme viskositet. Fantastisk duft af balsamico eddike og en tand sødme. Surheden er lækker i en dejlig balanceret smagssammensætning. Dejlig dejlig øl.

Bill Becker (1067) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUN 9, 2017
750ml bottle $21.50. Looks pretty black to me. Lots of tan foam. Wine like smell with dark pitted fruit, kinda woody and hints of Brett. Whiskey is subdued. Vinous taste from the fruit and Brett, notes of wood and to a lesser extent, Whiskey. Great mouthfeel and stoopid easy to drink considering the abv. Worth the bucks? In my opinion, yes.

4.1
Maracuja05 (1297) - Mainz, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2017
14-05-17 // draft at Alus Celle, Riga. Dark bloodred beer, beige head. Insanely complex beer. Some caramel sweetness, brettanomyces, dark fred fruits, light acidic, some red wine, some wood. Great.
