Draught at Slater's 50/50. Dark brown color, beige head. Sour taste with dark berries, acidic notes, wheat, a bit of raspberry, tart and grass. Sour finish with dark berries, acidic notes, tart, wheat and red currant. Excellent sour ale. cervmagpt (867) - PORTUGAL - APR 17, 2017
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 28C). Bottle 75 cl - Batch unknown (BBF unknown). AROMA: medium-low roasted malt and barrel. medium-low sour and wild fermentation aroma (slight barnyard). APPEARANCE: dark brown color and almost opaque with ruby highlights. medium light brown head with low retention. TASTE: initial medium-low roasted flavor with a slight coffee and barrel note, followed by a medium-high sour/tartaric note. medium bitterness with a dry finish with a slight roasted aftertaste. PALATE: medium-low body with meidum-low carbonation. tartaric sensation. OVERALL: an interesting sour stout that would benefit with a bit more balance with the acid note.

2013 vintage at Stout in Studio City. Pretty much opaque black with a one inch quickly dissipating head and a little bit of oily lace. Aromas of tart cherries that become more noticeable as it warms, vanilla, semisweet chocolate, and dark fruit. Big sour taste up front, with tart cherries, plums, vanilla and some malt. Medium body, minimal carbonation, slightly watery mouthfeel and a tart finish. Koelschtrinker (20772) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 11, 2017
Dunkel malziger Antrunk, stechende Säure, die aber nach kurzer Zeit zurückfährt. Geringe Bitterkeit, Pflaume, etwas nach Beeren. 11/12/11/11/9/11 EvanFriend (610) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2017
The main flavors here are that sourness with an almost gingerbread note that I find in many Bruery Terreux sours, with a roasty, stout background. I like this quite a lot.

6.6% ABV, bottled 2016 I believe. Pours a dark plum brown with a decent sized khaki head. Musky oak and dark fruit dominate the nose. Very tart, somewhat sweet. Medium bodied, decently active, with a tannic drying oaky finish. Definitely nothing I’d want more than a few ounces of because of the level of tartness, but it was great to try this.

Bottle. Dark color. Opaque. Dark brown to black. Low carbonation. Some small bubbles but not much. Aroma is oak, dark wine, chocolate. Vibrant nose. Dark fruit, plums, berries. Slight sour aroma balanced well. Flavor is decidedly tart with dates and plum. Dark roast. Chocolate notes. Fairly well blended between the intense characteristics. Nice. drpimento (3714) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2017
Are one of their beers that is more on the subtle side. Appearance’s opaque brown black with a very short-lived fizzy head and no lace. Aroma is tired roast a little bit of coffee and a tiny bit of fruit at the very end. Flavor is like nose fairly dry except for the fruit at the end which is just a suggestion of sweetness. Clean finish. chefseanjudd (37) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2017
Although undoubtably a good beer I didn’t feel that it lived up to the reputation that preceded it. The dark, roasts flavours of the stout base were almost completely overwhelmed by the lactic sourness. There was a long lasting flavour of sour plums which was pleasant enough. If you didn’t know what you were drinking you could be forgiven for likening it to an oud brune. melush (4341) - SPAIN - JAN 9, 2017
