Exactamente lo prometido, nada más y nada menos! Arranca con notas torrefactas, ácidas y a frutos rojos. Entretenida, entre cacao, licor y coñac, eminentemente ácida. huineman (719) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 2, 2017
33 cl bottle at Billie’s, Antwerp. Pours blazing jet black with no head at all. Aroma is intense indeed: sour black fruit (blackberry, bilberry); coffee, leather, tobacco, wormwood. Mouth starts with a very low carb feel and a super high sourness (so much it seems as though it didn’t have a full body, even though it does.) Low bitterness. Long-lasting finish with hints of coffee and green apple. Different and interesting. Desverger (11838) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2017

Opaque colour, small brownish head. Toasted, cellary, a bit tart aroma. Medium to full-bodied. Expected roasted malty meets lambic sourness mix. Can’t trace Akevitt but apple fruityness from cognac barrel. Stout/lambic-combo works suprisingly well.

From bottle 33 cl at 8.5%.
Black color, brown head. Vinegar, sour, wood, acidic, roasted scent. Sour, acidic, acetic, berries taste. Sour, roasted aftertaste. Warming alcohol. Medium and fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Black acidic and acetic beers just taste a lot like infected failed beers, also not to my liking since the roasted malts and the acidity clashes.
Sour grapes, citrus fruits, lemon, lime, dark malts. Hazy, dark brown, tiny, beige, frothy head. Medium sour. More sour citrus fruits, some dark malts, lemon, lime, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Beautiful Black Sour, well-balanced. Bottle shared at L42 tasting - thanks to Theydon_Bois! Johnstledger8 (1217) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 27, 2017
