Bottle thanks to MrH; 2013 vintage. Pours totally flat clear mahogany, no head or lacing. Aroma is sour, initially a fecal note that fades, sour mash. As it breathes some smokiness and peat comes out along with roasty notes. Flavor is light tart, lightly smoky, roast, peat, light funk. Medium body, really flat. I must say that when I first opened this I was kinda grossed out. After sitting 5 minutes is actually kind of interesting. I get no actual influence of the hops used, not even bitterness anymore. This beer did not benefit from time spent at the back of the rot box, unfortunately. I need to get better at that.

tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle; 75cl; courtesy of madmitch76. Appearance is opaque and the head has diminished. The aroma is brett; oak; tar; motor oil; panetone; fresh bread and toffee. Taste is chocolate; toffee; bubblegum; brett; licorish; leather; tart and tar. Blackcurrant is prominent. Quite sweet but very drinkable and not overtly dry. The brett works very well and it is not infected. It is quite sharp and acidic on the finish. An interesting and complicated porter. Great for the style. Top work Menno.

Leighton (20650) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle at the chriso Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013 - London. Pours cloudy golden-brown with a foamy head. Tangy and funky on the nose, with some ripe fruits and semi-dark malts. Big funk thereafter, more tangy fruits. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Tangy finish. Meh. Novel, I suppose.

Cunningham (7567) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Dark brownish color with a beige head. Dark malt and a bit acidic aroma. Medium + body. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation. Unusual acidic flavor for a porter. Hey Mr Menno. Don not do this to my lovely porter. A decent and fine brew, but I prefer the normal porter style without the acidic yeast notes. Coffee and roasted malt is also present.

How: Bottle.
Where: NK Bar, Stockholm.
Appearance: Light brown coke colour with no head.
Aroma: Sour, wet socks, brett, acidic.
Body: Medium body, low carbonation.
Flavour: Sour, brett, fruit. Similar to Rodenbach but not as much vinegar. No idea why this is a porter, more a sour red.

From a shared 75cl bottle at RBNG-14. Pours hazy brown with a tan head. Aroma of red, sour berries with some funky yeasty notes. Dark malt not so noticeable. Moderate sweet, quite sour and very pleasant. Delicious stuff. (2014-02-15 - Grand Tasting, Fredriksten festning, Halden)

A layer of tan bubbles, over a cloudy brown colored body. Nose is ashy dark malts, with a light vinegar-fruity touch. Oily mouthfeel. Sweetish, quite light malt body. Soft carbonation. Acidic-sweet, yoghurty fruit tones. Dries up towards a tart fruit finish. [Shared bottle at GrandTasting, RBNG2014]
