SlackerMads (3590) - - NOV 16, 2012
Black with beige head. Aroma of brett, red wine, wood, mild cigar notes in the background. Taste is mild sour, soft and dry with notes of red wine and horsestaple (I'm a country boy!). Ends crisp but warm with a light roasted taste. Soft carbonation. Damn nice.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Wiśnie, czekolada, czerwone wino, sos sojowy, bretty i kwasek. Fajne. 2009, chyba.

caesar (7397) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle, medium sample. Hazy brown color, short frothy head. Aroma of raisin, red wine, roasted malts, dark fruit, slight hint of cookie and caramel. Bit sweet in taste, roasty bitterness, vinous, red wine, raisin, slight funky. Bit too much of the barrel perhaps.

Benzai (16922) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle shared by Caesar. Dark brown to black color, medium sized brown head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is malts, dark fruits, fruitpeel sour. Tastes the same. Superb dark fruit sourness and red wine. Very nice!

Vestergaard (2091) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2015
50 cl bottle. Pours black with a big, light brown head. Aroma has lots of yeasty notes that reminds me of the smell of greenhouse. Brett, acidic fruits, herbs, slight chocolate and unripe grapes. Taste is very acidic up front. Gets more bitter roasty midzip, but is also accompanied by some sweeter, deep, chocolate and red wine notes. Also some slight sour tannins. Fairly smooth body and medium high carbonation.

Klimaet (3088) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Aromas of yeast, brett, vinous notes, cocoa, sour fruity notes. Taste is pretty goddamn bretty, some sour vinous notes, dark grapes, malt, cocoa, some roast, dry woody notes. Pretty weird mixup.

Fin (11059) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle picked up somewhere consumed at Mums, Worcester, Thames, Friday 28th November 2014. Pours almost black with beige head.Tangy, tart with a nice fruity sourness. Red wine ageing showing, a real sipper is this. It is really zappy, fruity and tart. Really likeable but would have like a smaller bottle or to have shared, its hard going on yer’ own.

500 ml bottle from Bieropholie, served cool and shared. Tart fruitiness, a bit of chocolate, coffee, a little spicy. Medium body, fairly still. Tart fruit, roasted malts, chocolate; dry with fairly high acidity and a reasonably roasted malty finish.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle @ cz. Aroma is bretty red fruits with roasty liquorice. Some mocca. Flavour is dry sourish red fruits with dark malts and caramel. Okay I guess.

Bottle in a field in the Czech Republic. Black pour, creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, bretty, fruits, chocolate, wine and slightly spicy. Flavor is quite bitter, sour and with brett. Decent balance and nice body.
