The description on the bottle was pretty accurate. It was a combination of a wild/sour ale and imperial porter. The aroma was sour and roasted. The color reminded me of root beer without the foam. The taste was sour, roasted malt, light chocolate and a hint of fruit but I couldn’t distinguish the peaches. The palate was more carbonated than expected. This got better as it warmed up. The wild yeast appeared to be the dominating influence. Interesting but not great.

Bottle thanks to Brad. Pours a deep brown with medium tan head. Lacing rings throughout my glass. Aromas of roasted peach, chocolate, sweet malt bill, maybe even some slight traces of brett. Taste is not too peachy, mostly cocoa, roasted malts, metallic flavors, and a little bit of the typical smokey porter taste. This beer finishes a little fruity and bitter. Pairs well with a smokey or sharp cheddar. Decent beer but overhyped in my opinion.

In bottle at Craigs. Pours a black colour with a lacy tan head. Aroma is a little sour with peach, roasty malt and chocolate. Similar flavours with a musty, sour linger. Mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

Bottle at cgarvieuk’s Danish Invasion tasting! Deep reddish brown pour, thin off-white head fades to a thin rim. Rich nose, tart peach, big spicy wood, chocolate malts, juicy fruits. Nice tart peach front, roast malts backing it up, big booze, rich chocolate, some tartness, slightly clumsy but some very nice flavours, a definite sipper but very nice.

blklab2007 (2011) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 28, 2012
bottle poured a brown in color with a big two finger foamy dark tan head. aroma has some funk, sour peach, barrel wood, rich roasted malt, and some bitter chocolate. very interesting combination that shows plenty of barrel character. mouth feel is medium with average carbonation considering the big frothy head. flavor has a nice roasted porter as the base with chocolate hits. fruit is there with sour cherry and peaches but more to the funky side than the sweet fruited. barrels lend some oak and tannins and the finish is smooth. this all combines well and it drinks very smooth for a beer with such a big abv.

750ml cork and cage. Large creamy yellow head, very well carbonated and frothy like root beer. Pours a color of black. Smells of sour peaches, tart, cherry, coffee. Tastes of poached peaches, coffee, and some vanilla notes. Medium body, almost light and smooth. Very nicely crafted beer. I had one when it first came out and had one recently. It is drinking very well right now. Age has done her well!

750ml from my main man Jeff. Thanks, Prof!!! Very yummy beer that combines a number of virtues. Thick oily body with a brimming head for starters, and a nicely full mouthfeel that’s got just a bit of chalk in the finish. Flavors are slightly tart from the fruit and some vinous notes that creep in as well. The peach additions are nicely subtle overall and they blend well with the chocolate qualities of the base porter. Moderate hops give a dry balance to things, and the brew is quite nice in sum.
