Reminds me of the sour stouts that were all the rage a year or two back, nice lambic-like tartness with some sweet chocolate flavors.

Deep, dark color, caramel color head. Roast smell with hint of something else. Robust, complex flavor, bit of coffee, with a sourness. Pleasing palate, smooth and lasting.

Fules (652) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 21, 2016
Monumentális, a végtelenségig tartó, tömör, kávébarna hab, fekete szín. Feketecsokis, kakaós, kissé konyakos illat. Feketecsokis, pörkölt malátás, kissé kakaóporos ízvilág, enyhe hordós, vörösboros aromával. Közepesen testes, enyhe szénsavtartalommal és keserűvel. Jól kiegyensúlyozott, nagyon finom sör.

probstblueribbon (3678) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2016
33 cl beer via Craig (thanks!), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Very deep brown with some mahogany highlights and a fair mocha head. Aroma: Rich milk chocolate, with some tart cherries behind that, a little funk, definitely a sour note, sort of a creamy/dairy note, nice. Palate: Medium body, very creamy carbonation. Flav.: Milk chocolate and tart cherries, some sweeter cherry as well, some straight-up dark-roasted malt, a bit more porter-like than the nose in terms of malt; dry with very light tartness and a milk chocolate, roasted malt and cherry finish.

Quite good.

tricksta_p (3254) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, bretty funk, ripe dark fruits, yeast, berries, touch of dark chocolate and coffee. Flavour is light sweet with a hint of sour and a light bitter finish. Body is medium. Nice Belgian ’Wild Porter’, could use a little more body, interesting beer.

Bottle at Volo. Black pour, medium beige head. Aroma is roasty, with some sharp grassy notes, and lactic, odd hoppy notes. Kinda hard to put my finger on. No sourness per se....but I’m getting some lambic/lactic funkiness. The finish is lightly bitter, more funk and roast, subtle cocoa, and coffee, with some dark prunes and figs.

mgajdaczewa (1562) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 13, 2016
W aromacie wyraźna nuta lambikowa, kwaśność, dzikość, na dodatek nutka palona, czekolady deserowej, co razem daje nuty kwaśnej wiśni. Dominuje jednak wytrawny lekki lambic. Inaczej w smaku, tam czerwona owocowość wiedzie prym, podbita przez leciutktą kawę, czekoladę, kwaskowość i nuty dzikie dopiero na dalszym planie dobrze spajają całość. Nie czuć, że jest takie mocne. Udane!

jamestulloch (3290) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle from Cornelius. Black body with a small tan head. Patchy lacing. Aroma of underripe fig, Dr Pepper and berries. Flavour of prune, Coco-Cola and a sour blackcurrant finish. Thin body with a watery texture. Fizzy carbonation. A strange beer - like a Porter blended with a Sour.

rondphoto (3851) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 26, 2016
bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Aroma of malt and dark fruit. Opaque black color, brown head that eventually drops to a full cover, bands and strands of lace. Taste is deep roasted malt that adds quite a bit of prune and fruit cake fruit before moving to a barely bittered finish that includes a little chocolate. Big, chewy, but really heavy and dense.
