3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, traded with Bierkoning. Very interesting... it initially reeks of horse sweat and a Polish smoked sheep milk cheese in the state of decomposition, so that I had to wait for a while before I was able to convince myself into taking the first sip. Then somehow that stench stopped being nauseating while remaining intriguing, before shifting toward pleasant by the end of the glass. Apart from horse sweat, there is the porter as such, with roast, sweetish chocolate and salty soy sauce. The malts are pleasantly enlivened by the funky brett notes so that it is quite a refreshing porter. Very tasty actually, once I got used to the smell. It is a similar case with very ripe camembert. It stinks but it tastes good and even the stench is not something to be missed.

Bottle from bierkoning, many thanks! Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes dunkelbraunes Bier mit schöner großen bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, fruchtig, säuerlich, holzig. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig, schokoladig, reife dunkle Früchte, minimal säuerlich.

Hmm interesting beer for sure; a small Dutch brewer making a porter with Brett? Well the dark looks, eh, look promising. Bit too frothy head perhaps. Certainly has quite some sourness (more just the Orval type Brett, then?) with roasty malts a bit dimmed. Also some candy sweetness notes. Interesting and novel, but admitedly I would have liked a little less sourness here. Taste is more balanced luckily, with nice roasted flavours with the brett and yeasty notes. Fun beer to try and I enjoyed it, despite the aroma being a bit too unbalanced for me. (33cl bottle from SpeciaalBierPakket)

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
33 cl bottle @ home, about a year old. Very dark color. Huge, frothy, rocky beige head, good retention. Aroma’s of roasted malts, red fruit, brett/funk. Even more brett retronasal. Flavor is roasted, bretty, a bit bitter chocolate, some light tartness. Light bodied. High carbonation. Finishes with lots of roast, ashy - that’s the best part of this beer. I’d be very curious about a proper (no brett) version.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle from a trade. Pours almost black with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is brett with a mix of burned malts. Flavour is very bretty at first but when it warms up it becomes more like a porter. Too many different flavours going on here...

Black colour with a foamy tanned head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, liqourice, and, oh yes, Brett in all its funky glory. Flavour is roasted malty sweetness with some Brett funkiness in the finish. I loved this brew!

Black beer. Smells very bretty, but has quite a balanced sour bretty taste, with a smooth underlying sweetness of coffee. Good one.

Thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that one! Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass dark brown, almost black, nice head. Malty-roasty aroma. Starts intense malty, roasty, earthy notes. Hints of liquorice and strong coffee. Finish well balanced, warming malty, still some interesting earthy notes. Good!
