thmsboyd (224) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2018
330mL bottle no. 279, gale no. 25941, BBE: July 2017. Served in a snifter @ 18ºC. Pours a thick black body with a reddish hue and small, burnt sienna head that quickly recedes to a thin crown. Fairly intense nose with sour, sweet and fruit notes apparent. Chocolate-covered cranberries, Christmas cake, wood and a touch of floral character. Violets, wine notes, slightly earthy, iron and obvious acidity. To taste: very dry, tannic and bitter, with a heavy dose of tart berry fruits. Full, thick and oily, with medium to low carbonation and a light astringency in the finish. There's so much going on here, it takes a while to decipher. Certainly interesting, but not altogether coherent. Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2017

Heidbummer (1166) - SCOTLAND - MAY 30, 2017
Pours deepest brown, thin coffee crema head. Big aroma of prunes, coffee, roasted malt, hint of sherry vinegar. Quite well carbonated for an impy stout, which counters the initial big sweet mouthfeel. The citric, fortified wine taste almost takes it in a barley wine / sour direction. It’s complex and interesting, and not typical for the style.
