Thanks Don for sharing! Quick review from notes.

Opened this over the sink and it literally did not stop gushing until a third of the bottle was left. We caught most of it with glasses but it was flowing out fast and nonstop.

Brown foam, brownish black body with good clarity.
Aroma was roasty with a slight sharpness that hinted towards an infection.
Taste was similarly roasty with nice accents of pipe tobacco and leather.
Body was medium but way overcarbonated and a little thin feeling as a result.
Worth a try, not sure if most bottles are infected, but be warned.

Lg. shared bottle at RBWG-2015.
Essentially black body with a thin head that reduces to a very durable ring.
Aroma is off, as i confirmed with another taster. The flavor holds up better, but there are some off notes in addition to alcohol esters and dark roasted grains. A bit too sweet as well.

Appearance - The beer poured a deep black color, with bubbles shooting out of the bottle and all over the place. Should I take points off for presentation?

Smell - The dark coffee comes through in the aroma with chocolate in the background.

Taste - My initial impression in dark chocolate and coffee. Since the beer was somehow overcarbonated, I did not get much else. I did enjoy the taste. The chocolate went slightly sour in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Too much carbonation.

Overall - I might have enjoyed the beer more if so much of it did not end up on the floor. What I had, I did like.
