gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2013
330 ml bottle at home - bottled 19/03/2013. Upon opening the bottle I already had a little aha-erlebnis as there was a tart aspect to the escaping fruity aromas... And my impression got confirmed in the first sip - infection - but wow, the result is quite interesting! Aroma is like a great Red/Brown Old Flemish Sour (similar to Ypres but a tad less subtle) - plums, raisings, fine port notes. Taste is a really well balanced sour-malty stout with nice roasted notes. Better than the Tart of Darkness :-) (sorry inside joke with a friend).

Very smokey whiskey on the nose. Pours with a thin lacing. I am struggling with this one (writing as I drink), on smelling it I thought they had over done it on the whiskey and could have blended it back a bit, but on second thoughts... Definitely TCP/medicinal notes, which normally Im not a fan of, this beer may sway me though. Very peaty and earthy on the finish which I like. For 11.4% this drinks very easily, and is quite balanced. For me that is the most impesive part. Overall, Id certainly have this again, but I wouldnt go out of my way for it.

33cl bottle at De Molen. Dark brown with a small off-white head. Thick body with moderate carbonation. Sweet with bitter notes. Whiskey, berries and wood. A decent imperial stout.

Maakun (4224) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2016 Sour with notes of the peaty whisky, like a glass of red wine gone bad with some ashes tipped into it. Looked flat, but had a nice color. Poured it down the drain after drinking half of it. Update two and a half years later. Seems a bit less sour, massive peat with some sour fruits and a touch of chocolate in the background. Lots of yeast too. Lingering peat lasts for a very long time. Last time I rated this 1.5 Ive had some crazy things during the years in between and Ill score it higher now, but its still way too extreme for me.
