tnkw01 (1316) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 19, 2015
Bottle. Hazy, brown color with hardly any head. Aroma is funky, not much cherry to the smell. Slightly fruity, no artificial cherry to this at all. Taste is very sour with hints of fruit, woody chocolate and old grains.

Lubiere (11014) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
A dark brown porter with a very thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel and chocolate malt with vanilla extract, fudge, treacle, decadent. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel chocolate with peated notes, scotch character, grassy hops, lactic acid, burned Caramel, interesting. On tap at La Fine Mousse.

b3shine (6519) - Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Draft to taster at HopCat in Indy. Looks decent; a very hazy amberish brown with foamy light beige head. Smells malty and oaky with some cherry presence as well; the flavors fight more than they wed though. Tastes like it smells with a semi-tart mouthfeel that’s medium to medium full-bodied. Underwhelming.

CanIHave4Beers (3557) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a dark brown with reddish hues when held up to light, the head is small and leaves some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is really not very good, the only thing this really reminds me of is old imported English ESB stored on a warm shelf forever, which is to say it has loads of sweet and garbage malty & oxidative characteristics. Mild cherry & roast. Gracious this doesn’t smell good.

The flavor is still plenty oxidized, sherry like, & cardboardy... although you do get some nice roasty maltiness and a great dosing of sour cherries here. I actually love the cherry character, which is dominant.... but most of what’s going on here isn’t great.

Huh, I really had high expectations of this one... good brewery, intriguing style, something went wrong.

Aniela (3537) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2015
Bottleat home. Hazy deep amber beer with a small beige head. Sourish, cherries, citrus aroma. Sourish fruity flavour with some cherry and licorice notes. Is this a porter?

_angst_ (3453) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle bought @ bisrkompass.de. Pours hazy dark reddish brown with a small frothy brownish beige head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sour, malty and fruity with dark bread, lemon juice, dark grapes, sour cherries, burnt wood, moist hay, lemon zest and hints of red wine vinegar. Taste is sour, malty and tiny fruity with roasted malts, dark bread, burnt toast, cereal, lemon juice, sour cherries, moist hay and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is dry, tart and medium bodied. Finish is sour with roasted malts, dark bread, cereal, lemon juice, sour cherries, cocoa powder, hay and liquorice root. Goes down but doesn’t add much. Slight roast, slight tartness and hints of cherries. That’s pretty much it...

Bottle thanks to Alex. Hazy dark amber/brown beer with a small beige head. Sourish vinegar, cherries, funky notes, citrus, raisins, some black currant. Sourish fruity flavor, raisins, chocolate, cherry notes, caramel, some licorice. Not very Porter-like.

olio (7430) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2015
50 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours murky red-brown color with a small head. Quite faint aroma, cherries of course, faint honey, distant leather too, can’t really get anything else. Sour cherries on the flavor, mild lactic fruity notes, some yeast and grass. Not as aggressive with the cherries as I expected, decent.
