COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This old-style porter is a blend of our Roughneck Scottish ale and a barrel-aged, sour stout. Rich malt character with hints of chocolate delicately balanced by a light, refreshing cherry-like tartness. 6.5%abv.

On handpump, at brewery. Pours a slightly hazy ruby brown body with a large frothy light brown head. The nose is nicely soured with some chocolate malt, dark caramel, and an almost cherry like fruitiness. Some dry roast and dark chocolate undertones. The flavor is just lightly sour with a nice light brett influence. Very well balanced between the mix of beers used. Not overdone and in your face sour like their Susquehanna Stout Kegs Gone Wild beer. Finishes with some sour cherry and light woody notes. Medium bodied with great cask carbonation and a very easy drinking smoothness. Very nice beer, worth the drive just for this beer. Hands down beats out New Glarus Old World Porter.

A-pours a black liquid with brown edges sporting a light tan head that is quite dense. S-the nose has hints of butter, diacetyl, yogurt, the wild yeast lies behind with a light hint of cherry. T-light diacetyl, not as present as in the nose, the wild yeast is up front with notes of sweet cherries, lightly roasted malt, chocolate, touch of coffee with malty sweetness in the back. M-smooth and creamy on the palate, quite soft with low carbonation falling down the throat. D-this is an easy drink, it seems to have been hit with diacetyl but would have been quite interesting without.

On tap at Bullfrog. Hazy brown-red, thin cream ring for a head. Nose of faint diacetyl, fruit yogurt, and light chocolate. Fruity flavor of cherry and lemon, also some chocolate malt and then oxidation in the back, very paper-like. Sticky and thin with a lot of lemon. As a whole, very incoherent and off at each stage. Probably the worst beer Ive had from Bullfrog, but that happens with experiments.
