Smell is mostly sour. Kind of a weird browhish red color. I do really enjoy the taste, sour up front and a slight malty finish. Definately an interesting beer that seems to have held up well. Thanks to madvike for this bottle.

12 ounce shared bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of sour fruit, vinegar, and malt. Taste is sour cherries, roasted malt, vinegar, and chocolate. Very interesting. Believe bottle was at least two years old.

3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2013 Unexpected extra graciously shipped by Stfun -- many thanks! To stemmed wine glass it pours a bleary chestnut hazy purplish auburn brown with a trim, sudsy off-white head. Aromas of fussels, and paint thinner, not much else. Maybe some chalk, too? This tastes tarted, slightly fruity, and sour. Picking up some charcoal, white wine lees, oakiness, soggy Camel ash, pickled sweet potatoes, and vinegar. I would recommend this beer, but it smells atrocious. Otherwise a decent sipper. Tastes a lot better.

Bottles. I totally understood what they were going for with this brew and I think they nailed it, but it still isnít really my thing. Very nice and well done for the style. I think Iím just a new world porter guy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at WTWBA 2012, Brooklyn. One of the coolest beers I tried here, and a great recreation of a beer from history. The aroma is honey, molasses, sour, unmistakable brett. The appearance is a translucent light brown, light for the style really, light tan head. The finish is sour milk, fruit, coffee. The finish is sour, acidic, coffee. Quite good, and very interesting.

From the bottle. Classic English malt aroma, solid malt body, tastes like a really good porter with some added sourness. Very interesting and somewhat complex.
