A: Black motor oil appearance with a khaki head & decent lace. Good head retention.
S: Dark roasted malt, tart sour cherries on the nose.
T: Malt bomb of flavor and booziness but very tart notes follow consistent with infection.
M: Smooth thick chewy body. Decently carbonated.
O: It is a shame this was infected. Will have to taste this on the premises to get the best experience.

THX! for the sample of this gorgeous rarity. This originated from one of the growlers that Mikkeller & To Øl @ Borefts 2013. I didn’t get it from the stand, I managed to get RareR there but missed this one. I have heard from pretty much everyone who has ever gotten hold of this one that their growler was infected & this was no exception. It didn’t taste terrible or anything but this was clearly not what it should have been. I have absolutely no idea how this beer managed to get its reputation. Huge local pushing? Or is it mind-blowing at the source? Black with a mocha head. Smells lactic (yeah) with bourbon, vanilla, sweet, chocolate, caramel, coffee,… Lastic taste, high carb & a bit thin body but still very enjoyable with its notes of vanilla, molasses, caramel, touch coconut, sweet caramel, coffee, faint roast, light warming spirit. Flat, spirit. It must be noted that even despite its condition this was till very enjoyable. Luckily the RareR was in good condition.

I feel really shit to write such a bad review but i have to. This is one of the beers i was looking for...really looking for. There was a great beerfestival yesterday in Holland (Borefts) and BA member Fux (Francois) brought his bottle to the festival. We had already heard from other that there were infected bottles and this one was one of them. Too bad cause i would love to get a good bottle from this beer!

16oz flip top growler opened on 7.31.13

A - Pours a deep dark black with a mosch brown head that moves to the edges.

S - Barrel, subtle booze, metallic.

T - Bourbon, wood, acidic- Slight cherry (Oh NO!) Some chcolate in the finish.

D - Good carbonation with heavier body, a sweet, sour finish.

O - A bit of a let down, infected. Lots of acidic and cherry tones.
