2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mild malzig-säuerlicher Antrunk. Die bitteren Noten passen eher wenig, kaum vorhandene Röstnoten. Leichte Kräuternoten, hintergründig Karamell. Die Säure stört. 8/8/7/7/9/7

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Hazy brown colour, small beige head, fair retention. Mostly toasted aromas, coffee, cocoa with some red fruit notes, a touch of caramel and hazelnuts. Taste is a bit sourish, lot of chocolate, caramel and coffee with some wild sourness, red berries, earthy and herbal hops. Medium body, low carbonation, oily texture, watery and tart finish. The sourness is a bit unpleasant for me, but beside that its good beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle at home. Pours deep brown with a small off-white head. Eoasted aromas and sour red fruit and lacto (infected?). Sour - roasted body with a tad of a coffee cream mingled in it, and a pungeant bitterness in the end. Taste is way too sour for a porter. It’s an interesting beer, but not my liking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bb07/2015, Geers. Fizzier colabrown pour, idem head. Sourish woody notes in aroma, stewed maroni caramel, not much else. Surprising woody tartness, astringency joins the pronounced chocolate malt and EU hop bitterness. Red berry notes with their earthy peel. The sour filter coffee components would be more enjoyable on a thicker palate and offbalancing more pronounced chocolate aromas, but this is an interesting take on the style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Murky deep brown color with large creamy light brown head and decent lacing. Aroma of ripe fruits, caramel, roasted malt, grassy hops and cereals. Taste starts sour fruity and yeasty, also a bit metallic, follows by smooth, creamy and moderate sweet roasted malt, mouthfeel is dry and spicy, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and lively carbonation in palate. You need some guts to combine sourness and velvety smoothness, but it works good with me...

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 06/2014. Very big tan and foamy head with too high retention. It keeps rocky on top of your glass for several minutes. Very dark mahogany colour, opaque black appearance. Roasted malt aroma with cocoa, liquorice and prune and metallic hints. Flavour is acid and sour with burnt malt bitterness and some diacetyl hints. Quite dry, without any sweetness. Full body with too high carbonation and very long sour aftertaste. Too sour for a porter, even been a -ish one.
