awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2007
From a 750mL Bottle. Dark black, obsidian pour with a tremendously large head of bubbly roasted tan. One quick whiff. Yep, its wild. Ive never had an intentionally wild stout before, nor have I ever smelled this aroma after opening a stout and NOT poured it directly down the drain. Strange, bizarre, dare I say confused aromas of molasses and coffee that are dominated by a brett character consisting of granny smith apple skins and peach tannins. Medium bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. Highly interesting - starts out with some chocolate and light roast notes, then transitions into some lactic tones with bleu cheese. As the brett character starts to fade, some woody pinot grigio tannins come out, but are finally replaced by the more straight laced, predictable flavors of roast coffee and dark chocolate in the final smack. Incredibly unique and interesting, and much more satisfying in flavor complexity than the aroma suggests. The label definitely wins the award for best bottle artwork to date. Thanks, Dillon!

bu11zeye (12894) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2006
(750ml bottle, 2005 vintage) Pours a opaque black body with a large long-lasting frothy rich brown head. Aroma of bretts, wood, cola, cocoa, florals, dark fruits, and a hint of lactose. Flavor of oak, vinous, hops, roasted malt, and semi-sweet chocolate with a carbonated mouthfeel and a dry finish. An extremely complex Belgian inspired stout; another amazing beer from Jolly Pumpkin.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 3, 2006
750mL bottle. Opaque black with a towering rocky brown head. Chalky chocolate underneath a phenolic tart brett aroma. Vestiges of coffee bean and smooth chocolate combine with a mild tartness. Ruddy eartheness in the finish with some astringency and a faint bitterness. Mouthfeel is a meaty medium, slightly dry.

Ungstrup (35695) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
A pitch black beer with a thick dark brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of chocolate as well as some notes of vanilla, and light notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet - and rather acidic - is it bret? but also with notes of wood as well as light notes of chocolate.

barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2006
750ml bottle courtesy of Styles. almost black on the pour with a light brown chocolate mousse whipped head which lasted forever. so much carbonation in fact, it took damn near 10 minutes for this to be drinkable. aroma was of roasted malts, chocolate and some coffee. flavor was all over the place and depended on the temperature as to what I was able to detect. early on it seemed to be chocolate up front with a dry roast coffee on the finish. as it warmed I noticed hints of grapes, followed later by an earthy oak flavor. an interesting FES, but it has too much carbonation for my taste and this detracts and distorts the flavors.

decaturstevo (5947) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Dark almost black pour with a tan head. An aroma of cocoffee. A flavor of what I want to call tart but may lean towards sour. A slightly fizzy palate that is also a bit thin. As this beer warms it become much more mellow.
