Muddy brown color, small expresso head. Strange cellary, roasted malty aroma. Woody, roasted malty, dry flavor, a bit chocolaty, mouldy and sour. Interesting, but not outstanding good.
Bottle from Middle Farm Nr Lewes. Dark brown with some ruby. Oaky with some lighter roast components. In the mouth a fruity acidity becomes apparent. Oakiness dominates throughout. Not too bad. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2007
12 oz bottle, via rickgordon. Pours a clear mahogany colored body under a large fizzy light brown head that slowly receded to nothing leaving no lacing. Nose is chocolaty and roasty with a good bit of raw oak and a vinous quality. There’s also some grape soda and light hoppiness. The flavor is a little thin, mostly dry roasted malt and very minimal oak tannins. A little coffee and grape on the finish that’s a little astringent. Mouthfeel is pretty thin and watery with alot of fizzy prickly carbonation, similar in alot of ways to seltzer water. Overall, this was a concept that never reached full fruition. Needs alot more body and true oak aging. ekstedt (6727) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2007
Bottle, 33 cl. Dark reddish brown, medium fizzy beige head. Roasted malt aroma, with some woody notes. Medium bodied, medium CO2. Well balanced with a firm bitterness. A decent porter.

Bottle from Waitrose and labelled as just ’Curious Porter’ and shared with my dad at home, consumed 08.12.11 Pours dark brwon with a head that I didn’t notice as it swiftly departed. Fruity and a touch toasty and roasty, malty and whilst not bad it is also nothing special. A6 A4 A6 P3 Ov12 3.1 erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2012
Dark brown and clean body and creamy beige head. Toast, chocolate, caramel, rye grains. Dry but light body and taste, Fairly carbonated. Not very rich, even for the abv. Lacks behind the aroma. Disappointing to be honest. (33cl bottle) gunnar (9019) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2012
