500ml Bottle. Pours a very deep brown. Thick juicy nose with continues to develop in the palate with a hidden smoke in the background. rodenbach99 (4678) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 10, 2017
Bouteille de 500ml. 10%. Un liquide brun avec reflets rouges, le jus de surreau. La mousse a des traces roses. Un nez de chocolat mélangé avec de la fumée, du vinaigre léger et fruits acide. La bouche est identique au nez avec un côté acido-fumé. Agréable. Pas pour tout le monde mais historique et nescésaire dans ce monde d’IPA, de saison et d’Imprial Stout.

Medium bodied. Weird and interesting. DocLock (11112) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours turbid dark brown with tan head. Nose is earthy dark malt, dark fruit, nuts. Tastes earthy, with huge blackberry flavor, some nuts, lactic acidity, but comes off as a semi-dry blackberry wine with more earthy and nutty notes. Solid however you define it, you pusillanimous, pompous, purist, punk, pestering, pricks.

0,5l bottle shared with wiosna @ One Pint Pub. Pours very dark reddish brown with a low head. Aroma is lightly roasted malts, smoke and some berries. Flavor is roasted malts, smoked ham, elderberry and some alcohol. Very nice. dnicolaescu (2749) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 18, 2017
BOTTLE 50 CL at 8% abv. Clear dark ruby, beige head. The aroma is a strange mix of coffee/chocolate, toffee and yeast, some green olive brine. The taste is also slightly chocolaty, with the same yeasty/meaty and briny off-flavour. Everything is saved by a balance of moderate caramel sweetness and good clean lactic sourness. Good full but easy drinking body. Nice, bit feels a little off. VDuquerroux (1900) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - FEB 7, 2017
