33 cl bottle @ EEIPAF. No BBE info
Sour, very brettanomyces-like aroma. Blindfolded I would guess I’d be drinking Orval. Some slight roastiness can be observed though. Flavour is rather messy with sour bretta and roasted malt. Quite typical belgian stout actually, but more sour than others.

Habanero (2430) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2014
Bottled. Pours black with a small, lacing and creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, yeast, fruit, brett notes and some chocolate. Sweet flavor that ends up dry ans a little sour. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carb. A nice and quite special Porter.

jeremyh70 (652) - Missouri, USA - JUL 6, 2014
An opaque brown with the slimmest hints of chestnut around the edges. Has a nice khaki head that settles to a film and leaves excellent lacing. Aroma has nutty roasted coffee and slight cocoa character, a vinous quality and a bit of tartness. Taste is lightly fruity and a bit tart at first then you get some roasty coffee with cream and the cocoa followed by some berry flavor. There is some smoke and charred flavor in the finish. Aftertaste has some mild roasty bitter and a bit of the tartness that fades, but otherwise dry. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with a light/medium body and moderate carbonation. Interesting porter that would be good with food. The slight tartness didn’t turn me off but I prefer my porters without it.

danlo (1049) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
330ml bottle from Beautiful Beers online. Black-brown colour, foamy biege head leaving lots of lacing and aroma of roast malt, chocolate, nutty along with zesty, fruity, yeasty, funky notes. Taste is chocolatey malt, smoke, molasses, coffee, dark fruits, light bitter with a tartish lemony & barnyard edge. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, tart & roast bitter at the finish. Very drinkable.

(bottle - 330 ml) Dark brown pour with a puffy tan head. Lightly roasted aroma with a touch of earthy and funky yeast. Wasn’t very sour but still gave a good flavor to it.

Sexy little bottle brought back from beersel. Pours out a dark brown topped with a tan head. Nose is roast malts chocolate coffee and some smoke. Taste is as the nose with the roast malts and a touch of oddness.
