3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. I guess its an imperial version of one of those old-school porters. Its okay, don’t know what a brett barrel is but this had a medicinal funk to it, decent.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Well it poured like a porter and then you go in for a whiff and you get massive sour vinous notes, followed up by leather and chocolate cranberries. Tastes of wine, vinegar, and chocolate. Finishes way to sour for my liking. I feel like I could close my eyes and wouldn’t even know it is a porter the way the sour dominates all other expected flavours. This beer didn’t really work for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of very dark chocolate and sour. Taste is fruity dark chocolate up front with sour leather, earth and wood coming in pretty quickly to take its place. There is a bit of cheesy funkiness in there as well. The sourness can be quite punchy if you take a big gulp of this. Overall a fun beer. I wish it was just a little less sour though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a good black with a small beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of cherry, roasted malt, alcohol and light vinegar. Taste is of chocolate, fruits and red wine-like grapes. Vinous with a moderate body and carbonation. A pretty good flanders-ish porter!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500 ml) shared at tasting. Dark brown with a medium beige head leaving good lacing. Aroma is super fruity with brettanomyces, vanilla, roasted malts, chalky notes and cocoa powder. Taste isn’t too sweet but the fruity brettanomyces, despite being quite present, is never overwhelming. There’s roasted malts, cherries/vinous notes, vanilla, oak and cocoa powder. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fruity finish with a mild lingering oak spiciness. Very good brett Porter with amazing fruity features. Not too sour and super flavorful.
