Draught at Indie Ale House. Very dark with off white head. Lovely mildly tart aroma, with cherry and chocolate. Mild roasty flavour with faint chocolate, coffee, some funk. Sweeter than expected, with lingering chocolate-covered cherries flavour. fiery1 (1587) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2017

750ml bottle (thx, Peter K.!) at Alex’s in honor of my birthday and CPA PREP finish. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is some brett, sour and fruity notes, roasted malt. Same taste that is very smooth. Pleasant one. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2017

Dark brown color with generous beige head. Very nice aroma, dark malts with a Brett and sour touch. The mouthfeel is very smooth, it’s rather dry, moderate acidity, light funk touch, plums, and mild roasted malt.
Tap sample at Birreria Volo. Reddish brown with small and scattered creamy head. Really sour aroma, so much funk and tart fruits that the Porter is completely hidden. The roast comes out a bit after its warmed. Better in taste: starts off definitely as a Porter but continues with very tart funkiness and vinegary notes, finishing in a very weird dryness and vinegar, almost a bit aggressive... Flattish on the palate, dry finish. Difficult to rate, a freak this is. Interesting, at least. omhper (25565) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2017
Keg at Brothers Beer Bistro, Ottawa.
Near black, mid sized beige head. Slightly buttery funky nose with some licorice and lots of oak. Mid dry with medium and soft, firm mouthfeel. Vinegary oak, vanilla, dates and licorice. Peppery finish. Complex and delicious mix of Flemish red and porter. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2017
A deep dark porter with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with loads of dark cherry, light Brett, light lactic notes, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity chocolate malt with maraschino cherries, light vanilla, light acidity, light Brett, complex and delicious. On tap at Brother’s Beer Bistro.

There is a really big nice funky aroma, ripe fruit, roasted smell, acidic character, got that mixed light acidic and heavier palate, flavour is nice and funky with a roast finish. Not bad enjoyable wild ale. Karol (942) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 20, 2016
Tapped at the brewery. Dark ruby hazy thick color. Beige thick soapy head. Aroma of sour cherries, red wine, blueberry juice. Taste mirrors the aroma plus super dry sour fruits. Dry like toothpaste, a bit mint. Bitter hops and light espresso aftertaste. A crazy beer, refreshing. Alcohol hidden. Medium body. Overall not bad at all.
