3.7
Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2013
from Erzbierschof - dark beer with a poor head retention; shy woody aroma with sourish notes and black chocolate as well; pretty astringent, full-bodied, some sweetness and a long lingering biting sourness, chocolate and prune - complex but with a bit too much wood presence

thewolf (12949) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2012
Tap @ Dronning Louise, Esbjerg.
Pours almost completely black with a small, creamy, beige film head. Aroma has funk, chocolate, plums, apple. Medium carbonation, dry and somewhat light mouthfeel. Flavour is funky, oaky, roasted malts, mild chocolate, overripe plum. Rather dy and mildly tart finish. Not sticking together that well.

3.7
Pinball (12608) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2013
pitch dark, light brown head. aroma is roasted malts, dark fruits, wine, flavor is wood, wine, roasted malts, pretty complex, notes of red wine?

3.9
Meilby (11791) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle 500ml @ Geokkjer
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, brett and red wine. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long warm and vinous finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

77ships (11482) - 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.

faroeviking (11343) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - OCT 30, 2012
Chopp. Amber brown, small off-white head. Tart roasty malty (dark) fruity like aroma. Good mouthfeel. Pleasant flavour of roasty malt and brett (pleasantly tart), fruity like too. Nice.

3.4
Fin (11069) - 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.

KyotoLefty (10810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2013
Draught at Delirium Loft Brussels. Acidic, lactic nose, vinegar, chocolate, cherries. Great, complex nose. Pitch black with a super fine tan head. Flavors of chocolate, wood, vinegar, yogurt. Very tangy, lots of chocolate. Good, not completely exciting, but good.

3.9
DuffMan (10772) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle shared at RBAG 2013. Very dark brown, pretty murky, with a light brown head that laces sparingly. aroma is distinctly bretty with rich roast and light sour cherries. The palate delivers funky sour edges to a solid lovely stout base. Really tasty. as an aside, I find it interesting that at 8.5% this beer is listed as a stout, whereas the Fort Garry Kona Imperial stout weighs in at a whimpy 6.5% yet is designated "imperial". Not that it matters, but it seems pretty arbitrary.

3.7
olio (10694) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
50 cl bottle @ PBF 2013.
Pours deep dark ruby red color with a small off-white head. Aroma of sour fruits, dark berries, some wood and hops. Flavor of sour dark berries, faint malts, and some bilberries. Sour and somewhat one-dimensional but excels at that.
