Huge thanks to Erzengel for that one! Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass dark brown, small head. Malty-fruity aroma. Starts malty, intense fruity like berries, also some intense sourish notes. Salty-dry background. Finish well balanced, warming-malty. Nice one!

Bottle at beer dudes tasting at Appellation Wines Comely Bank thanks to McNeillR.
Appearance - cloudy brown with a thin head.
Nose - raspberry with a creamy background. Not much chocolate.
Taste - big tangy and creamy raspberry note again.
Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture that keeps going straight through the finish.
Overall - very nice even if I can’t pick out the base Porter notes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, tasting at Appellation Wines. Hazy brown body with a thin beige head. No lacing. Aroma of filter coffee, underripe plum and caramel. Flavour of raspberry jam and tangy, almost sour berries. Thin body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Light fizz. Not as much chocolate character as I would have liked.

Bottle at MAD tasting, cheers McNeillR! Pours murky brown, no head. Big raspberry aroma, big raspberry taste. Would have liked a bit more porter notes, but a nice beer nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Dark brown color, near black, with small compact head. Clear aroma of raspberries and some honey. Highly carbonated; the mouthfeel is rather dry; the underlying porter seems to be good, with some chocolate traits, although the flavor is dominated by real raspberry and with a good level of sourness too, leading to a mildly astringent final.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent sour and innovative with a porter combo but there is nothing much that remarkable about it. It is really lacking a good wild yeast to put it over the top.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sharp, sour fruit switches to porter flavor with some mild smoke. Neither component is memorable and there seems little reason for the match.
