Bottle shared by Bill at Vinny’s January 2013 tasting. Unfortunately this tasted a bit infected, but not too bad as I don’t necessarily hate a sour porter. Pours a deep body with some lacing. Aroma is oak, sour vinegar, and musk. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of toasted malts, light chocolate, vinegar, sour fruit and oak. I would love to try this again given the great feedback.

Medium sweet, light coffee bitterness growing to medium in the finish. Burned notes in the finish. Full body, lightly creamy, well masked ABV.

PhillyCraft (5899) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle shared by Bill. Pretty sure this guy was infected which sucked since it had good reviews. It wasnt full on nasty but you could tell the sour was outweighing the porter. Notes were rusty penny, and bad vinegar. I could still get some oak and roasty malt out of it but wasnt enough to enjoy it, drain pour it is.

Bottle... Poured dark brown with a bubbly head. This was nice with pronounced oak tones. Woody, earthy and a good malted sweetness. Smooth and easy to drink with a smooth wood notes going on. Some dark fruits with coffee and mocha/cocoa.
