Viper666 (3287) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
Bouteille 500ml. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de levures sauvages légèrement fruitées et aigres (cerises sûres, pommes vertes, raisins vineux), moyen de malt rôti, moyennement boisé (fût de chêne vineux, bois humide) avec des notes de chocolat noir et de houblon herbeux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux notes vineuses. Goût de levures fruitées sauvages légèrement aigres/acides (cerises sûres, léger de raisins vineux, notes de pommes vertes) avec un goût boisé (fût de chêne vineux, présent en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de malt rôti doux avec un très léger goût de chocolat noir ainsi que des traces de pain grillé puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux appuyé par des notes d’alcool vineux. Post-goût moyen-long et aux notes sèches, légèrement aigre de levures fruitées sauvages (moût de cerises sûres et de raisins) avec une légère amertume de rôti, un léger goût boisé (fût vineux) ainsi que quelques notes d’alcool vineux et de chocolat. (Wild Dark Ale?)

Pours black with a tan head. Lots of funky brett on the nose along with some roasted malt and cocoa. The red wine is subtle. A little oak presents itself. Same story in regards to flavours. Funky brett, a fair bit of roast, some acidity and booze. Pretty moreish stuff. I’d like more malt sweetness though.

Bottle shared with the RB crew at Torst. Pours a deep brownish black body with no head, thin lacing. Aroma is wine, oak, roast and light tartness. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of red wine, lots of tannins, wood, sour dark fruit and roast. Good stout.

podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Draft at Torst shared with RB gang. Pours black with small head. Aroma is both sour and tart with some roasted notes. Taste is more sour than stout with noticable notes of red wine tannins and some coffee and chocolate. Really enjoyable.

Hermod (7879) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2013
50c bottle, BBE 2018, says the label. Poured black with a brown, lacing head. Aroma is sour, bretta noticeable, roasted malt and grapes. Lovely. Flavor has bretta more evident, red wine like notes, wood, grapes, cocoa and roasted malt. hoppy, dry finish, quite tart/sour with grapes. One of the more complex beers I have had in a while. Full bodied. Very tasty!

77ships (9827) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2013
50 cl. bottle split with Marko as his 3500th rating @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Crazy ugly label both drawing as well as colour design, the whole deal. Pours black with little and disappearing beige head. Nose is very heavy on the typical standard USA brett – still baffled by the fact that sour beers have become so homogonous – mixed some yoghurt lactic sour wine, quite a standard USA profile, sour malts, tannins and sticky sweet red wine – apparently Brunello. Taste carries trough similar, very heavy, lots of USA-style Brett in here, strongly yoghurt lactic red wine, sour thicker malts, barrel, sourness has been upped as is customary, light roast, citrus sourness,… Oddly fuller brett body as usual. Good but I am still expecting sours to be unique brews – probably shouldn’t have started out with lambic’s – my bad.

Marko (5711) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle shared with 77ships. Yay, my 3500! Poured a black body with an off white head. Raisins, sticky maltiness, obvious notes of the barrel involved. Brett shows up in the taste, funky sourness, but the malty presence and the raisins are still there. Slightly vinuous, you can tell that it was aged again. Still, somewhat straightforward... in the end, quite nice!

lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2013
500 ml bottle @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Rated on 24.2.2013.
Pours a black colour with a small white head. Aroma is strong with red wine notes, oak and dark chocolate. Flavour is very rich and big with roasted malts, red wine, tangy citrus, oak, cherries, dark chocolate, berries and tannine. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, vinous, quite complex finish. For a stout this is quite unique.
