Had Perdition in June 2017 in the courtyard of the Hotell S:t Clemens, in Visby, on the island of Gotland, Sweden, poured from 330-ml. bottle, label stamped Bäst före "2018-09-28," into water glass.

A Nordic summer seems like the perfect place for a sour stout. This beer pours black and initially looks very nice in the glass, but the tan head disappears without a trace. The aroma is unfortunately all sour fruit all the time. The beer is sour and fruity with finally a little possibly chocolate malt at the end. Drinkable? Yes. Wanted more malty stout goodness? Absolutely.

P.S. Think of this as an American (experimental) Stout, rather than an RIS, and your disappointment will be lessened.

Pours night black, with a solid, beige head.

Smells of bakers chocolate, a hint of caramel, milk chocolate, toasted hazelnuts and tart raspberries, which got a jammy sweetness to them.

Has a medium carbonation with a more than subtle berry tartness, which has an over the top acidic punch to it, swallowing almost all nuances of the profound maltiness in this.

Tastes of tart raspberry skin from the very beginning, with a malty, earthen dust quality to it. Sweet milk chocolate takes up the challenge and produces a pleasantly soft creamy sweetness. The middle part adds big time to the berry appearance, tart and pungent, with an almost tongue numbing sourness, producing a bitter chocolate quality, which defines the malts. Finishes with astonishing well pronounced flowery, fresh raspberries and earthy, bitter malts, coated up by a dry bitterness.

Too much of the fruits, not enough stout. Crazy much fruit in this, with not enough balance to create a complex, stout worthy taste.

Dark brown reddish color with brown head. Aroma has nice fruity notes along roasted malts. Taste starts sweet-sour with lots of fruit. Finishes sour and roasty with coffee notes in the back. Body is medium, dry and very carbonated. Quite nice overall, a very interesting combination of sour fruit and roastiness.

When pouring the beer, you get a thick brown foam. The beer goes in a brown / black tone Scent The first thing that strikes one again is the tangible feeling of wine. It can not be helped, but even this did smell a little wine. But you will find some roasted malty tones, with raspberry and chocolate thin little dough. Small sweet tone of raspberry and orange. The taste reflects the smells pretty much. It is tangy, dry and tasting raspberries, fruity beer. But there are also some hints of coffee and chocolate in the background that will more to come in the aftertaste. Small notes of lemon and dough fermentation. A little small sour and dry as I want to have a good red wine. Occasionally with carbon dioxide, and low bitterness. Fairly good balance and stays nicely on the palate.
