bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2015
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.

Kita (1463) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAY 12, 2015
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...

alomtnez (165) - SPAIN - MAY 10, 2015
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.

Ik kan helaas niks over dit biertje schrijven omdat ik het in Nederland heb gedronken en geen info heb opgeschreven. Wat ik wel heb gedaan is een cijfer gegeven. Ik hoop dat ik hierdoor genoeg info voor mezelf heb creëert.

caesar (5792) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle from de Molen beershop, dated 11-06-2014, large sample. Dark brown color, medium frothy light brown head. Aroma of roast, bit coffee, bit earthy hops, slight spicy, bit whole grain cookie. Slight sourish taste, bit malty bitterness, slight sweet cookie. I was expecting a touch of sour, so that’s no surprise. Bit too thin and lactic sourness makes the roast a bit sharp. Bit sticky on the palate. Ok-ish.
