nuplastikk (4322) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Sour Whiskey Porter on tap at Maxs...I’ll bite. Creamy and doughy, low carbonation. Wow, extremely excellent. Mild faint sour cherry notes under the creamy delicate body. Delightfully sessionable, this is a fantastic beer.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Draft at Fountainhead. Pours a deep brown-black with some haze and a thin off white head. Nose is tart, tending towards vinegar and sour cherries. Some cocoa also comes through along with some white-wine brightness. On tasting, it has a very light tartness and earthy brett and yeast notes. Some light astringency. Light bodied overall, likely thinned by the brett. Really interesting to try.

GT2 (8354) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Tap at The Birch, Norfolk VA. Simply listed as Porterhouse Plain Porter "Z" 5.5%. Good coffee foam on deep cola pour. Acetic nose with hints of chocolate. Taste is roasty, red wine, bitter cherry chocolate. Thinner finish with butter and lactic cream, vanilla, some apple juice. Fiance loved it, 3.9-4.1 level.

kramer (4896) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Tap. Max’s. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin covering. Some nice lacing. The nose is very vinous and showing a nice sour character without hinting at a whole lot of acidity. Almost like a chocolate covered sour cherry. The flavor is really nicely done. Reminds me a bit of Ithaca Dark Humor. Walking the line between the sour and the chocolate character of the porter with a great underlying red wine vinous character. Nice dry finish, rather highly carbonated with pinpoint bubbles on the tongue. Pretty nice. On the short spectrum of sour porters, I put this above the New Glarus one and about even with Dark Humor. I like it.

Drake (8300) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Served on draft at The Birch, Norfolk. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of whisky, tart fruits, herbal hops and wood. The taste is tart fruits, roasted malts, wood, whisky, lightly tannic. Medium bodied. Nice.
