A: The beer pours a dark brown with some reddish highlights. On top sits a massive khaki head, filling much of the glass. S: Things are not off to a good start. There is a weird fruitiness, I would say blueberry. Quite acidic with a mild red wine vinegar note to it. Still plenty of roasted malt, though. T: The flavor is harsh. Very acidic with quite a bit of vinegar. There are also some cherries and blueberries to it. Lots of roasted malt along with seltzer water and green apple. M: Light to medium in body with a very high carbonation. O: Obviously some rogue microbes have made a home in this beer. Not enjoyable.

Bottle. Poured black color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium dark sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. My expectations where met.

Really off putting smell. It took me forever to take the first sip. It is a decent porter in flavor. Not robust, but rather a frutier more sessionable flavor.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottled. Poured medium brown with a tall, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up burnt molasses and dark cane sugar with vanilla and earthy accents. The flavor found burnt black malts, baker’s chocolate, and fruity notes with vanilla bean and sharp roast around.. finished bitter, roasty, and dry. Light-medium bodied with high carbonation and lots of roast on the palate.. hard to swallow due to the carbo.. OK overall.

Bottle. Poured a cloudy brown with a yellow brown head that lasted and laced a bit. Aroma was a combination of sweet grains and roasted malts. Flavor was similar with some dark grains in the beginning, but finish is sweet with roasted malts throughout.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours dark brown in color with reddish hints and a large creamy beige head. The aroma is mildly roasted malts, some sweetness, and a slight tart quality which was strange. The roasted malts have a hard time coming through because the tart acidic notes in this one. Still some chocolate hints. There is a weird brett component that couldn’t have been intended. I wouldn’t mind trying this without the beginnings of infection.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Thanks to RAYBOY01 for bringing this to the latest Flossmoor Station mug club tapping. This poured a clear reddish brown body with a respectable white head. The aroma held some lightly roasted malt, dark caramel, and a suggestion of smoke. The flavor was faithful to that... until some toffee crept in that seemed out of place. A bit thin, too.

Dark brown with ruby lowlights and a mammoth frothy tan head that fades quickly leaving streaks of lace. Aroma of roasted malt, shoe leather, grains and light chocolate. Taste of mostly roasted malt, not very sweet with a mild bitter aftertaste. Some light coffee and chocolate notes come through. Mouth feel is a bit sudsy. Ok.

bottle - Pours very dark brown and smells of dark roast malt and a hint of chocolate. It’s a straightforward porter with the expect roast malt flavor, decent balancing bitterness, a medium body, a bit of chocolate, and a roasty finish. Pretty good.
