4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 6%. Citric aroma, perhaps a little Brett, no probably lacto. OK roasted. Black colour. Good brown head. The flavour is nicely sour, good woody notes, perhaps some lacto. Slightly sweet. Tastes more like a sour than porter.

1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very dark beer with a dark beige head. Nice salty nose, with a dark hint, which makes me think of of great Bordeaux wine (strange, but true). But when tasting this beer, I’m so disappointed... Salt salt and more salt. It’s simple disgusting. Not drinkable. Maybe I have a bad batch (147 by the way), but this is definetly not my beer.

batch 225 bottle outta nowhere from dakine on 3/8/10.
pours as black as brownish red can be... topped by a beige head.
amazing aroma of fudgey chocolate, ashy tartness, brown sugar, prunes, wood, spice, roasty sweetness and coffee.
the flavor is the same only way more amazing!... a bit rich and brown sugary with sharp cheddar cheesy notes on the finish.
full bodied. crazy creamy insane mouth feel. love it! 9/5/10/5/19/4.8

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smell is sour, some hints of roasted ingredients, liquorice (wood), raisin.
Taste is intense: sour/vinegar, hints of roasted ingredients, yeast, syrup, hints of coffee hints of spices.
Sweet sour mix. Light bitter but more sweet aftertaste. Bit grassy aftertaste as well.
Taste like a mix of Geuze and Stout.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is of dark malt with toasty notes. Pick up a faint slight tart flavor that must come from the barrels. Smoky and alcohol taste. Not very smooth. Sweet, spice, booze, and barrels with a bitter ending. Alcohol is way to prevalent in this.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske 0,5l. Batch 147. Lavt sjokoladefarget skum. Tydelig syrlig aroma av akevitt. Her begynner problemet: Enten er den gått sur til tross for at den er innenfor dato, eller så er den beregnet til å være en belgisk sour. Som porter er den ikke typeriktig. Som surøl er den ok, men midt på treet.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a frothy brown head which fizzes away quickly. Nose is dark chocolate, roasty, aquavit as well once it warmed up a bit and woodsy as well. Flavor is full of roasty malts, caramel, chocolate, dark fruits, slight wood and finishes with a nice bitterness with the roasty flavors still present. Also get slight licorice. Great beer.
