Reviewed solo @ The Gingerman NYC,

Appearance: Brown and maple in color with little head.

Smell: I can't really pick out a distinct aroma but overall there is an earthiness that is similar to their valdmoesel.

Taste: Opens grainy which is pretty consistent throughout. From the middle to the end there is a slight tangy earthiness and a subtle hint of sweet caramel near the finish, leaving a earthy, tangy and mildly hoppy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation which is surprising to me.

Drinkability: I would have another but only if there wasn't much on tap and this was their best stout.

2.6/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Courtesy of Papsoe. 500 cl bottle. Aroma is slightly tart with very faint smoky notes and medium roastiness. Has a sort of soured chocolate sweetness as well. The body is flat black though it pours a dark ruddy brown and the head diminishes rather quickly to a lazy tan-colored oil slick. The fore is plastic/smokey like it was overdosed with peat and there is a tangy sweetness that is a bit rancid tasting. Very nice mouthfeel if slightly oily. So many have remarked on the sour notes I assume this is not an anomaly, but it’s certainly not something I go in for.

A- Poured from the tap with 1/2" of tan foam, which was well-retained and produced some nice lacing throughout the drink. The body was a beautiful reddish-brown... almost black... The opacity of which masks the appearance of any carbonation that may be present.

S- Smells of black olive juice and soft cheese, with lesser aromas of roasted malt... not very appetizing nor a sign of anything good to come...

T- Tastes cheesy and saline with a touch of roasted malt flavor. The finish is mildly sour. No hops were detected by taste nor aroma.

M- Big body... textured with plenty of unattenuated sugar, and complimented by some nice soft carbonation.

D- Uh... horrible. I drank just enough to perform this review, and the rest was a metaphoric "drain pour". Don't care to have this one again.

NOTE: This beer started-off quite pleasant when it was cold, but the cheesy and saline notes immediately emerged as the beer warmed... and that's where I was turned-off...
