750 ml bottle. I’m thinking this is about four and a half years old. Aroma is complex, with cherries, chocolate, Brett, toffee. Pours a dark brown to mahogany with a two finger tan head with excellent retention. Taste is earthy, lightly sweet and somewhat tart from the cherries. Thin-bodied with a fairly light body. The Brett comes out more as it warms. Nice beer.

750 ml bottle, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours very dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is brett, barnyard funk, cherries, barrel, tart. The taste is tart, funky, cherries, the roasted grains of the porter shows up in the finish. Big surprise with this one, was expecting something more malty, very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared by the Atlanta Fantasy Football Crew. Pours brown with a thin off white. Aroma of ripe fruits, cherries, spices, cola. Taste was cherry candy, molasses, some cocoa, spices. Slightly weird finish of off yeast. Not bad at all, but perhaps just a bit of something that I cannot find words to describe.

Dark brown colored pour. Huge dark tan head. Plenty of lacing. Big sour aroma of dark cherries and pits. Some chocolate notes as well. Chocolate flavor right up front. Sweet milk chocolate. There is some of the cherry in the back. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark roasted chestnut unclear with a decent creamy and lacey darker beige head. The aroma has slight cherry juice and wild yeast astringency. The flavor brings the wild yeast as well, with light sweet fruity notes that settle delicately on the palate. I remember much bigger flavor, especially from the cherry juice. I think I sat on it too long.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with Keith, pours black with giant mocha head, lasts forever. Aromas of cherry juice, dark chocolate, light brett, taste is black sharpie, wood, cocoa dust, booze, and barrel. A lot rougher compared to nose. Medium to full body, warming in chest. Needs more carbonation and less marker flavor.

Aroma is very fruity with grape, cherry, and spice. Sweet and sour flavor with a wine-like grape flavor. Definitely different and certainly good, but not great.
