Cunningham (4905) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2014
Deeeeeep darkish color with a fine dense tan head. Good lacing. Mellow and nice aroma. Chocolate, some funk and mild fruity. Medium + body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Smooth easy drinkable porter. A bit unusual with its mild funky dress. Mild pleasant chocolate, caramel and mild fruity. Nice one!.

330ml bottle @ Midlands Tasting Group Aug 14, at Richie’s Hop Palace. Pours very dark brown with a creamy head. Bizarre taste mixing dark malts & nuts with a sour farmhouse funk. Interesting but can’t see it being my ’go-to’’ beer anytime soon.

fantti (731) - FINLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Kaatuu snifteriin sysimustana ja noin 1,5 sormen paksuisella ruskealla vaahdolla. Mosaiikkimaista pitsiäkin jää kivasti lasin reunalle. Tuoksussa vahvimpana on kahvisuus ja makea suklaisuus ja soijamaisuus. Vaikken tiedä, onko tähän käytetty belgihiivaa, niin sellainen marjainen mausteisuus tulee myös leivänä nenään. Hiven savuakin saattaa olla joukossa. Maku on hyvin erilainen, lakritsi on suuressa roolissa kahvisuuden vain tukemana. Belgihiivainen marja ja mausteet ovat myös läsnä, pienen makeuden ja happamuuden (lambichiivasta?) siivittämänä. Suutuntuma on melko tuhti, jonkin verran humaloitu ja makeahko ollen samalla hyvin juotava. Hyvä, hieman erilainen ja suht monipuolinen portteri, jännä nähdä lambic-panimon tekevän muutakin olutta.

ForlornHope (99) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
33 CL bottle at home. Aroma of dark rich malt with a sour edge. Pours with a large brown head that fades quickly. Dark brown in colour with a red tint. Taste is malty and very bitter, with a light persistent sourness. No real balancing sweetness. Quite a thick palate. Overall pretty good and an interesting beer that is different from sweet dubbels/porters.

BlackHaddock (4129) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
330ml bottle: shared between 6 at the Midlands Tasting Group on 24th Aug 2014. Pours dark brown with a creamy head in colour and texture. Not my thing, a sour farmhouse with lemons in the both the aroma and taste, add a dark maltiness throughout with some dry roasted nut flavours and you have got the taste I did. I would say it was different more than interesting and I did not take to it at all.
