beerbastard (675) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2014
330 bottle, pouring very dark brown. Dark fruit with a mixture of chocolates, coffees, some cherry in the background, with a mild funk soaring all over the top of this. A mild, yet complex sour blend of chocolate malts, roast, lite coffee and more dark fruit. As a Porter this stands on its own as being very good. Then you add in the Lambic yeast twist, it kicks it up a notch. Bammm!!
