3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mental note: can be a major gusher, so keep a pitcher ready. Dark brown, black colored brew with a huge head. Mix of sourness, yeast and roasted malts in the aroma. Flavor has roasted malts, some coffee and Brett yeast, light sour, some sweetness. Interesting brew for a superb pub In De Wildeman, Amsterdam.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brownish color with a beige head. Dark malt and a bit acidic aroma. Medium + body. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation. Unusual acidic flavor for a porter. Hey Mr Menno. Don not do this to my lovely porter. A decent and fine brew, but I prefer the normal porter style without the acidic yeast notes. Coffee and roasted malt is also present.
