mecafilo (218) - Perugia, ITALY - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle @ Elfos Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a black colour, small diminishing tan head. Aroma is medium malty, with notes of roasted malts and coffee; also some yeast, as in a lambic; good, but not very strong. Taste is medium sweet, slightly bitter, medium sour; very good. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. A great blend of the porter and the lambic styles; it is a porter, yes, but you can drink as much as you want, as the sour side of this beer takes away the sweetness you dont want anymore in the finish.

gramity (1638) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2016
Black with a puffy light tan head. Aroma of banana bread dough, licorice, coffee. Some funky notes buried under big doughy yeast and fruit. Lightish bodied, not slippery but creamy and alive. Tangy sourness isn’t totally expected from the aroma but a little comes in quickly to underpin the bread and mocha and it takes the overripe fruit aspect almost away. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b33r (872) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Dark brown color with medium fluffy light brown head and thick crazy lacing. Aroma and flavor have vinous, grapey notes, with strong cocoa and roasted malts. Great combination of tart and malts. Very good overall.

MelvinKalksma (1460) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, berries, dark fruit, liquorice, brettanomyces and acidity.

Appearance:
Opaque dark brown beer with a slight brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit and liquorice; ends slightly dry and sour with brettanomyces and acidity.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. A really strange Porter thanks to the huge amount of brettanomyces. These add a lot of berry and (dark) fruit flavour, but the beer loses so much essential flavours thanks to it. When these sour touches finally lay down however, the chocolate almost manages to shine through. A decent beer all-over and a really unique one.

ctipping (1835) - Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2016
330 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 5/20/2013. Shy of black. Big khaki head. Thick collar. Nice wisps. Smells of dark chocolate. Some acidic notes. Hefty roasted malts. Slight acidic aroma. Brett, maybe? Way more acidic taste. Whoa. Grain and lemon acidity. Deep roast. Finishes roasty. Nice chocolate finish. Lots of carbonation. Overcarbonated. Medium body. Definitely not your ordinary Drie Fonteinen beer. Clean combination of sour and roast, though, which isnt a common attribute.
