Bottle shared by mdfb79. Thanks Dan. The beer is pretty clear, appearing dark brown with a light tan head. The aroma brings some tartness, with brettanomyces, funky, musty fruit, malt. Interesting. The wild yeast really comes through in the flavor. This beer isn’t bad, per se, but a small portion is plenty. Wild yeast and porter don’t play well together. Light bodied with adequate carbonation. I was intrigued by this beer since I am a huge fan of anything wild / sour, and though this was interesting, I don’t feel compelled to have it again. I grow tired of breweries releasing unintentionally infected beers. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-15-2012

Thanks to Dan for sharing this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Pours dark with a thin off-white head and a bit of lacing. The nose brings some roasted malt and a touch of chocolate behind a cherry-like sourness. Not great, but not too off. A bit of bourbon there as well. Bourbon and cherry lactic come through in the flavor. Medium body with a moderate lactic twang to the finish. Decent.

This one was produced and bottled exclusively for big red liquors. I was til it became infected. Sure enough, it expells plenty funky and lactic acid aromas similar to their lambics. Brown pour. Flavor lends mild lactic notes, caramel, barnyard funk, vanilla, chocolate, and coffees. This is quite add but not totally offensive.
