Bottle: Black, purple-lit, with a craggy, frothy light brown head. Tart chocolate and yeast aroma....citrus. Taste is an interesting combination of citrus,yeast, and chocolate/cocoa. Porter, sour, Belgian ale all in one. ....it works.

"nice unique brew here. as a straight stout/porter, it would be very thin, but the body works with the flavor profile, which is light and complex. roasted malt, chocolate, funk, and ash. Same in the aroma. Very quaffable. Iíve been told like the Jolly Pumpkin Sour Stout light."

aleigator (231) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2014
Has a decent, khaki, froth head, with a deep chestnut brown color. Aromas of syrup toffee and burned, wooden malts with coffee hints among them. Begins earthy, with wooden, rich malts, supported by a lively carbonation. Burned caramel notes get joined by a subtle coffee bitterness, resulting in a tart sour impression, due to an acidic brett infusion. The sourness interacts surprisingly well with the scorched, sweet notes of the brew. Bretts add an unusual complexity to the brew, which lets the sweeter components stand out even more, especially during the finish. The tastebuds get shaked pretty hard on this flavor-rollercoaster, which combines opposite tastes. The finish itself isnít relying that much on toffeeish malts as a regular porter, but implies a sugar powder note, with a subtle fruity addition, while a gentle sourness still saves a spot on the palate.

Hoppsan (151) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2014
33 cl bottle. Pours like a viscous Coke, with medium head. Roasted coffee beans, aniseed and licorice in aroma and flavor. Really nice and strange brew!

Köpt på Systembolaget. Ser ut som en porter och har dess fyllnadsgrad, men smakar mer än en vanlig porter. Smaken är fylld av malt, kaffe och mörk choklad. Intressant öl, helt klart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark like a porter but tastes nothing like it. Stale aroma, sour body, yeasty appearance. Like the brew you should have put to the sewer but was to greedy not to. Pour out.

berntholer (939) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
beige head leaves some lacing. coffee coloured. aroma is sourish, old wet wood, hint of anise. taste is citric acid, roasted malts with a bitter finish, ends wry tannines. rather thin body, medium carbonation. didnít work for me, the combination sour-bitter-wry is not mine. bottle 33cl / bbf 2017

The aroma of dark malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Good but still a bit sour in taste. It even has a light fruitiness but taken over with coffee and chocolate. The aftertaste has a good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth of a weak moment. Sur and still quite watery.

TheJestersBeer (2083) - SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours almost pitch black, with a brown head. Roasted, quite acidic, vaguely funky aroma, coffee beans, licorice, earth, faint smoke, tobacco. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Roasted, acidic, faintly funky taste, chocolate, coffee beans, licorice, earth, hay. Technically competent, but the acidic elements, and the roasted character really needs more body and/or residual sweetness IMO, to be balanced. (2014-09-10)
