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 brown pour with ruby highlights and moderate creamy tan head. Lots of roasty stout-like aromas - charred and roasted meat and espresso. The taste is also quite stout-like, with roasted red meat, a little charcoal, coffee, molasses, also with a bit of apple cider vinegar light sourness. Medium bodied and lightly acidic. Very interesting and quite enjoyable take on a stout/porter.

Bottle 330 ml, pours dark brown almost black with beige head. Aroma of coffee, vanilla, chocolate, butter caramel, nuts and somevnack fruits Taste is very good balanced with medium sweetness, light coffee bitterness and some delicate sourness. Full bodied, creamy and fruity at once. More a stout than a porter and besides the light sourness not much of a lambic, but still a nice mix of styles.

The thing about this dark beer is that with the lambic yeast, it pretty pretty much wipes out any porter flavor and aroma. So itís a pretty good dark lambic that may have been a porter, but it seems very little like one now.

Black. Thin oily head. Dry. Slight banana. Is this a porter or a belgian? Tasted at Elijah Ps Monsters of Beer festival.

Butelka, warka do 21/11/16, czyli chyba dosc swieza (co moze miec spore znaczenie, bo brety jeszcze nie zdazyly zrobic go bardziej funky). Bardzo ladne, ciemno brazowe piwo z nieimponujaca za to dosc dlugo sie utrzymujaca brunatna piana (ladnie zostajaca na szkle do tego). Pierwsza nuta w aromacie... lambic! jednoznaczy i ewidentny - przedziwny efekt przy wachaniu portera :) Pozniej, gdy piwo sie troszke otworzy, poodycha, czuc tez kawowe, popiolowe, drewniane, palone i... dosc wyrazne winne nuty. W smaku dosc zlozone, po trosze funky, kwaskowatosci, gryczki, slodkosci... plus oczywiscie echa aromatow. posmaki dosc dlugie, kwaskowate, winne. Niezbyt pelne w ustach, alkoholu wlasciwie nie czuc, ciala nie jakos duzo, leko sie pije, bardzo rzeskie i odswiezajace piwo, zarazem nijak nie zaslugujace na okreslenia "kwach" (mimo, ze z 3 Fonteinen). RObi wrazenie swa innoscia a poza tym jest smaczne i ciekawe, zlozone.

330mL bottle from Slowbeer. BB 22/12/17 Deep near-black bronze body, holds a creamy tan head. Nice nose; feels dark, brooding, mysterious - blackened toast, roast nuts, hint of coffee & dark chocolate, counterpointed by vinous red fruits, spicy woody earthy notes, hints of butter & horse. Lovely creamy carbonation, plenty of body, velvety texture, touch of acidity & well-attenuated dryness. Good contrasting flavours on the body - roast malts, plum skin, dark caramel sweetness, phenolic spice, dark chocolate, touch of cheese, hay & barnyard. Touch of warmth on the finish, good hit of acidity and dryness on a long finish - accentuated as it warms. Great idea, great execution, great beer!

Bottle. Black with a puffy light tan head. Aroma of banana bread dough, licorice, coffee. Some funky notes buried under big doughy yeast and fruit. Lightish bodied, not slippery but creamy and alive. Tangy sourness isnít totally expected from the aroma but a little comes in quickly to underpin the bread and mocha and it takes the overripe fruit aspect almost away. Interesting.
