Tap. Pours to a dark brown/black body with a beige head. The beer was extremely drinkable. Smooth flavors that consisted of light coffee, black malts, subtle zinc (hard water?), and light black licorice. Like a "porter-lite". The palate had a subtle metallic component that was either caused by light souring or hard water. All-in-all, very drinkable.

Mörkbrun nästan svart öl med ljus brunt skum. Doftar väldigt mörk rostad malt tillsammans med kaffe och choklad. Smaken är maltig, söt, nästan lite sur frukt och jäst. God beska men ingen ny favorit. Det sura drar ner betyget för min del. Flaska från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zakoon (55) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2014

ninecats (180) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2014
Pours clear dark brown with a huge brown slowly dissipating head leaving some lacings. Aroma is sweet with cocoa, bitter chocolate, sweetish and roasted malt, coffee and a slight yeasty hint. Taste is malty, mostly sweet and roasted, with coffee and hints of cookies on one hand, on another itís fairly sour, and the sourness quite unexpectedly kicks in bigger and bigger and lingers until the very finish where some coffee meets up. Medium body, medium carbo, oily texture. Well, this was a most interesting porter, the sour touch made it very drinkable actually, as if it fits better to a spring afternoon rather than a dark winter night.

Leini (841) - SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2014
330ml bottle. Pitch black, with a medium tan head. Roasted and tart hits the nose. Flavor os tart, roasted malt, chocolate and some fruit. Medium dry finish. Quite ok, but could use a bit more of everything, sort of.

blklab2007 (1982) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle poured a dark cola color with a covering of brown head that hung on well. Aroma has dark chocolaty malts, mild roast, earth, and burnt coffee. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation average. Flavor certainly has a dark roasted porter, chocolate, burnt coffee, mild wood, and a light sourness. I expected this to be sour first and a porter later but the base porter stands up strong on itís own and the sour side is more yeasty with earth.

Patrickctenchi (3800) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2014
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.
