downender (5912) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, - MAY 17, 2013
Bottled. Dark brown with a touch of blackcurrant colour. Sweetish, with raisins, roasted malts and blackcurrant juice, before a slightly toasty finish. Ok.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2014
Bottled. An unclear brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of chili, berries, and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of chili, roasted malt, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle poured into pint glass. Doesn’t seem black, but is still utterly opaque. Sort of red brown. Light tan head, very smooth. Aroma is like a lambic. Red fruit, but not very nice. Like bad jam. Taste is the same but amplified. Sour open, odd sweetish middle and bitter yucky finish. Difficult to pay attention to palate based on the unpleasant flavour, it just grabs you and doesn’t let you pay attention to anything else. I wonder if this is a bad batch, seeing as a lot of people have been ripping it recently...

k0mpsa (943) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle from ales by mail. Dark brown color, hint of red. Small light brown head. Aroma is berries, sour notes, lemon. Weird taste, sour notes, berries, lemon notes, lambic notes. Label says porter but this is something else.

Kingi (448) - - OCT 25, 2013
label says porter but this tastes and smells like a blackcurrant lambic, making me a bit hesitant as how to rate this. works as a lambic, not as a porter. sour blackcurrant aroma and taste. spoiled beer?

Dark red - amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry. Mild minerals. Tangy malt with sweet and sour blackcurrant. Finishes slightly papery and dry. Interesting but clunky.

lusikka (5338) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
330 ml bottle @ vPBF 2012.
Pours a dark brown colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of blackcurrant, birch leaves and some honey-like sweetness. Flavour of blackcurrant, rubber, syrup, honey and some grassy hops. Light bodied, thin mouthfeel and a mild finish with blackcurrant. Weird.

laiti (4945) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
33 cl bottle @ vPBF, BBE 10/2012
Aroma feels a bit moldy and light with some hay and malt. Flavour is weird and bitter in a harsh way. It has nettles, some slightly sweet malt and hints of rubber. Not good.

33 cl bottle @ vPBF. BBE 10/2012.
Pours hazy red color with minimal head. Aroma of grass, mild malts, fruity notes, dark berries and some sugar. Flavor of dark berries, grass and mild malts. Way too stuffy and unbalanced.
