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.

Bottle@home. Black small head. Fine roasted malt. Some coffee blendes with sharp not tart finish. Fresh dry. Have a slight cooled wich dampens the flavours.

Tap at Ebeneezer’s Dark brown color with a rich bubbly off white head. Rich chocolate and dark pitted fruits with hints of earthy funk to offset. More Porter than anything with just faint hints of a mixed fermentation. Tasty brew otherwise.

larryLSB (474) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle from AJ’s in Soquel, poured into a FW Teku chalice. Ticked this off on our recent trip, but saw it on the shelf and thought I’d rate it. Dark brown with a medium sized dark tan head. Nose reminds me of bittersweet chocolate with a bit of funk thrown in. Taste is complex, bitter sweet with underlying sour notes. Medium bodied, finishes on the bitter side. Interesting Porter with the sour twist.

karpik (259) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Aroma is a mix of lambic and porter. There is chocolate, bit funky, some hay. Pours almost black with tan head. Taste is medium dry. Again, funky notes are mixed with chocolate, very interesting. Overall unusual beer, definitely worth a try.

Bottle, bb 21/11/16. Pours almost black with ruby hue. Foam is beige, nice lacing. Aromas of chocolate with intriguing sour / wild notes. Taste is chocolate with light sourness. Quite dry, low to medium bodied, drinkable.

miquelcrush (1840) - Granollers, SPAIN - JUL 10, 2015
Cervesa molt interessant, barreja els tocs torrats i dolços d’una porter però amb un lleuger toc àcid final. Cerveza muy interesante, mezcla los toques tostados y dulces de una porter pero con un ligero toque ácido final.

* Mild-säuerliches, malziges Bier. Frisch, nicht zu tief, süffig und rund. Moderat bitter im Nachgeschmack.
