Keg @ BrewDog Edinburgh, 200612 Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2012
Dark brown, thin tan ring around glass, hint of lacing
Aroma - Fruity sour, some alcohol, rather tart, dark fruity malts, no hops
Taste - Red fruits, bretty, sour lambicy notes but not too much, sweet dark malts, red wine, dark fruits, good if a bit muddled - I prefer the normal Monk’s Elixir to this
Palate - soft carb, full rich body. Finish as main flavour, sour, dab of acetic acid.
Overall - Interesting, rather good, but I prefer this with no brett....as a Quadrupel this one is no way among the best

The aroma holds brown sugar, dark fruits, figs, black cherries, dark caramel, chocolate, dark bread, sour milk, light wood, lint citric, earth, mild funk and a whisper of smoke. The flavour is light sweet, light bitter and light acidic with notes of dark fruits, dark caramel, brown sugar, wood, light funk, earth and a hint of hops.

On draught at the Boreft Beer Festival, 2011. Brett aroma with a musty horse blanket, leather, caramel and treacle qualities. Quite tart with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Pours a dark, dark brown. Almost black. I can’t see anything though this thing. Giant, fluffy, off-white, almost tan head. Slowly dies down with a huge wake of foam and lacing sticking to the side of the glass. Huge sour aroma mixed in with some sour cherry aroma and malt. Tart front, sweet middle and dry spicy back. This beer is simply spectacular. I wish I could buy barrels of it. RasmusOtt (2902) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2011

Bottle @ ACBF 2011. A dark brown colored beer, with a beige head. The aroma of sour with wood dough, dark fruits. The taste of gentle dark fruits with wood notes and vanilla. The aftertaste is smooth sweet with a little bitter. MIBRomeo (2579) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Thanks to Bill for sharing.
Dark brown pour whispy small tan head avg lacing. Lots of dry wood notes a good amount of funky leather some red wine under that some sweet caramel malts. Avg palate. First taste an odd mix of sweet caramel and a super dry finish aftertaste of dry oak. Some light leather. Really smooth and well blended the alcohol is basically invisible. Good stuff.

Had this one at the ACBF 2011. Brown, black colored brew. Brett all over the place. Sweet malts and fruits, berries, raisin. Nice. dfearnley (2340) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
330mL bottle to tasting glass
Aroma of molasses, cherries, raisins, and hay. The colour is reddish brown and there's a very thin off white almost tan head. The taste is tart with sweetness and a bit of coffee bitterness. It has a medium body with a creamy and oily texture. ken1 (2174) - DENMARK - FEB 8, 2013
A very disappointing beer. A fruity cherry aroma and flavor. Tangy notes and a tart aftertaste. Redish brown color with a white head.
