Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2015
A dark brown porter with a very thin mocha head. In aroma, beautiful sweet chocolate malt with loads of raspberry jam, light acidity, dark fruity molasses, very nice. In mouth, a nice tart sweet fruity malt with light chocolate, light raspberry jam, light acidity, light Brett, very nice. On tap at Rattle N Hum.

tomer (2416) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 10, 2015
At a tasting, almost no head, murky deep purple color, with some yellow hues, aroma of prunes and fruit compote with a hint of raspberries, stewed fruit flavor with some chocolate, quite strong unrefined sourness. Muddled but quite interesting.

oldrtybastrd (3372) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Pours a dark mahogany with tan fizzy head. Aromas of raspberry and some sourness. Flavors of raspberry tootsie roll pop...a little sour and an astringent finish.

Duracell (18) - Montreal, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
Bottle at La Fine Mousse, Paris. Dark brown colour with a ring of large bubbles sticking to the side of the glass. Not the prettiest beer, but I’m not surprised given it’s a sour. Very nice, complex aromas of dark fruits with an obvious sourness and a certain sweetness on the edge. Red wine notes on the palate, along a nice fruitiness (cherry, plums) and a hint of salt. Medium sourness. The finish is dry and a bit short. A really nice beer. Bold, complex, and well rounded. Highly recommended to people seeking experimental offerings.

FlandersNed (369) - , Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2015
16.9 oz bottle. Opaque dark brown color, dirty tan head. One beer buyer said to only drink this warm! Gotta admit, it did get better as it warmed. Nicely soured raspberry and porter taste.

reebtogi (5071) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2015
500ml bottle pours a murky amber brown color with no head and very little lacing. Aroma is dominated by raspberry with some other dark fruits and mild chocolate. Taste is a raspberry tartness with a dark fruity and malty sweetness with some light roasted notes. Light to medium bodied with mild carbonation. A decent enough brew, interesting and as advertised a sour porter. Quite enjoyable.

kerenmk (3467) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 13, 2015
Bottle at Wreckmeister’s balcony, Vienna, 25.7.2015. Thanks Wreckmeister. Muddy brown-red with a smal, white foamy-bubbly head. Cocoa, a little coconut and vanilla aroma, some soft roastiness too. Tastes mildly sour, raspberries, then more sourness. Full body, astringent,sourish finish.

The beer pours a dark leather brown, with a thin off-white head. The beer smells of chocolate and malt, with some hops and subtle berries in the background. The body is full, coating the whole tongue with little carbonation. At first you’re hit with the taste of chocolate and malts, but then some sourness and a lot of tartness from the raspberries become more prominent towards the end. Definitely a sipping beer.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2015
Sourish malty body. Fresh, hints of raspberry in the body, that becomes more intense and round in the end. Sourish fresh, malty-sour, raspberry dark. Hints of sourish fruity roast in the aftertaste. Nice.
