On Tao at Dix Brasserie. Lightly sour porter in the true tradition of Guiness and later Belgian interpretations. Beautiful lace, nice tight head, dark as chocolate. Biscuity, yeasty aroma. Not heavy yet fulfilling, slight tart, no roast, malty, dry finish. Perfection. Well-blended. huineman (691) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 2, 2017
33 cl bottle served in half pint glass at La Tape, Madrid. It pours pitch black with reddish shades. Thick, long-lasting, moka-coloured head. Very intense scents of portobello mushroom (Agaricus brunnescens), prunes, espresso coffee, black chocolate, cola, even parsley. No liquorice, though. Taste is very fresh (I presume it’s the lambic yeast), low-carb, great bitterness despite the sourness and umami. Long finish with hints of coffee, cola and blackberry. Very nice porter.

Smells like a porter with hints wine acidity
Black color. Medium size head
Light sweetness, not much bitter considering it is a porter. Nice light sour undertones throughout the front middle and end of the taste. Delicious smoke taste coffee, and roasted cacao at the finish.
Nice full bodied complex porter. Has a creamy texture and an interesting finish.
Overall this is an interesting beer. It combines elements of a well-crafted porter with wine-like features. I would buy this again.

Such a refreshing take on a beer - brett yeasts have been used pleny of times in dark beers, but I REALLY enjoyed how well they’ve done this.
Aroma has a roasty nose, touch sour, chocolate notes play in and out of smell. Appearance has a beautiful thick tan head, and is almost jet black in colour, brown round the edges. Taste is fantastic, beautifully roasty choc/malt flavour complemented perfectly by the sour taste. Palate is beautifully silky, far more pleasant than normally comes with such a flavoursome beer. Absolutely exquisite! Grzesiek79 (4301) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 1, 2014
I love Lambick yeast. Pachnie pszepieknie to piwo kawa czekolada, powidlami sliwkowymi i winnym octem. W smaku lekko palone czekoladowo kawowe i kwaskowe, taninowe dosc solidnie. Orzecha wloskiego wyczulem w pszelyku w koncowce. Wyglad to glebia czarnego koloru, geste i czarne niczym smola. Piana brazowawa sporoa utrzymujaca sie sredio dlugo ale jest super jakosci. Piwo jakby chcialo pszemowic, bierz i kosztuj kazdy lyk i sie nim delektuj. Doskonale do serowych pszekasek. Polecam.

A very good noise off everything !!! Chocolate, coffee and sourness. The black version off the Vicardin !!! 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Wow. I love this. Ah-mazing. Pours a slick near black with a fizzy head. Aroma of burnt popcorn, light roast and tart fruit. Flavor is sublime... perfect balance or tart and roast, berries, fruit, funk, dry but not thin.... insanely good. I love sour porters! bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2014 33cl bottle, Geers. A thinner than expected black, impervious filter coffee pour. Organically, earthily, many-hued soured porter incorporating the aromas of red berry arabica coffee beans, suave bitter chocolate with dried cherries, rich roasted beans of either the coffee or cocoa variety, in both liquid and granulated form, red wine if left open for a while. Very easy to drink, a lactic but easy sourness guides the palate towards sessionabilty. Splendid aftertaste, subsuming all fruity (berries and apple), powdery, vinous notes in a masterfully dry coda. - This original, subtle, stellar dessert of a beer, with manyfold potential pairing options, yet also holds up confidently when drunk by itself. jackafholmes (1017) - - MAY 23, 2015
Keg at biercab, barca. Black with off white head. Aroma is smoky choxolate and coffee, with some herbal notes. Taste is bright and rich at the same time, roasty bitterness with a slightly tart overtone. Nice fizz on the tongue and good medium body with oil. Really like this one. dwyerpg (6188) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 17, 2016
This is quite nice. The wild yeast gives this a bit of a Flanders brown feel. Just a hint of tartness. A little roast.
