Tasted on 9/30/12 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle sent to me by Chris, big thanks. Pours deep, dark brown with a bit of a red velvet tint, and a thin brown head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is sour with loads of chocolate malt, maple, vanilla, and caramel bourbon, and just a touch of roast. The flavor is a bit more sour up front, moving to all of the chocolate, maple, vanilla, and caramel barrel aged notes, and finishing with some roast. The body is full and tannic with average carbonation and a very long sour and bourbon finish.

Bottle share. Clear deep red brown. Big legs. Aroma of bourbon, bright sour cherry and raisin. Taste is full sweetness and a sour balance. A tingly finish from booze, but not unpleasant.

hayduke (3470) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Sampled at the Kick Starter event at the Humboldt Cider Company to help fund their new tasting room. Pours near black with a light tan head. Nose of funk and oak, along with some fruit and chocolate. Full body, Rich mouth feel. Flavor is a lot of wine barrel and the sourness is very present and this carries over to the finish. I really liked this.

Sampled from a bottle I brought to WTWBA 2014 in Minneapolis. Dark cola colored pour. Sour dark fruit, wood, and some bourbon sweetness. I usually don’t really dig sour porters, but I really liked this one.

Theydon_Bois (9947) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle shared at CBC Clerko, from an IP trade, 30/09/14. Extremely dark mahogany brown with a decent tan swirl and edgeing. Nose is roasty, dark fruit rinds, fruit balsams, chestnut, dates, spice. Taste comprises earthy notes, berry fruit balsams, oaky wood must, strong alcohol wash, vinegar notes. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid enough for the ABV if a little hot.

Bottle to goblet Bourbon, caramel, spices, oak. Dark brown, thin ringed off white head. Bourbon, caramel, fudge, soy, lemon. It kind of feels like sour and sweet bourbon is fighting and bourbon is winning.

750mL bottle, 2009 vintage. Opened with a loud pop, and it gushed a bit.. poured medium-deep brown with a tall beige head that fizzled down quickly. The aroma picked up sour oak, bourbon, and leathery notes over sour coffee and licorice notes.. sweet roast came through in a nice way.. spicy on the back of the nose with more bourbon barrel. The flavor found tart oak, lightly metallic barrel, and some tannins on the tip of the tongue, with sweet, roasty black malt and vanilla following.. tasty bourbon and lactic notes laced throughout.. finished with great balance between the porter and the barrel.. and some belly warmth. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation.. moderate-plus overall sourness, and it was always in balance.. really tasty stuff!
