3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
