Trappist1 (425) - Diest, - APR 4, 2014
750ml bottle. Dark brown color, with a pinkish beige head. Nose: smokey, roasted, cherries, (wild?) yeast ver much present. bit sugarish, hint of sourishness. Taste gives brown chocolate, speculoos, some mocha. Lacks a bit of power though. carbonated and a gentle finish (which I did not expect). To me, it feels that the porter and the íkriekí just do not mix up together. Lacks a bit of punch from the íkriekí and the smoothness of the porter. Nevertheless a good effort, like this. Nice experiment.

Nice cherry nose, very little chocolate. Dark reddish brown color. Tart but not too tart, minimal sweetness, and just a touch of hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled draft @ ZBF 2014. Thick murky brownish red with off-white bubbles. Smells lactic, sour, fermenting berries, rotting cherries and chocolate. Tastes of rotting cherries, lactic, muddy water, fermenting chocolate, the sourness doesnít come across as intended. Not very pleasant, the whole feels very messy and tad watery.

Countbeer (4311) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2014
Bottle @ DVMBBT: Creamy red ish brown foamy head on top of a hazy red ish brown colored beer. Aromas of cherries, some light marzipan, light chalky, light manure, very nice aroma! Flavours of chocolate, cherries, light tart, light toast, some malts, some bitters, light chalky and some herbs... Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, malts, toast, chocolate and cherries. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture. I reallly like this stuff!
