Alpha10 (304) - Ontario, - JAN 14, 2014
2014/01/14 - Pours an opaque, dark brown cola colour with a two-finger, fizzy, khaki coloured head that quickly reduces to a lasting surface film. Aroma is toasted/smokey malts, chocolate and sour brett funk (lemon and cranberries?). Taste is lemon, smokey malts, mild chocolate notes and a sweet and sour acidic aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, with lively carbonation and a tart, drying finish. Interesting mix that plays well together. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Karol (591) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 24, 2014
Tapped at the Barhop in Toronto/Canada. Overall a crazy sour fruity porter! It has all a good porter aroma and taste plus the craziness of sour cherry fruits. Alcohol was well hidden. Took me a while to finish the nice tulip glass. A great beer!

Sammy (8351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Very well done, the additional beasties gave it a cherry winey character. Rich and great. A good integration with porter.

neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2014
500 mL bottle at the brewery, served in a stem glass. Pours black with a small tan head that fades to a thin rim and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of cherry, sour fruit, roast malts and a touch of smoke. The flavour starts out dry and roasty with a nice porteresque feel, but it soon acquires a moderate tartiness with sour fruit, Brett funk, oak and earth come through as well, but the fruit dominates. The finish is long and oaky, with sour fruit, apple cider, earth and roasty malts. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a smooth milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a decent sour porter, but not the most complex. 2014-04-08
