3.26/5 rDev -7.6%
750ml into a snifter.
A. Black, no head.
S. Sweet acetic acid. Apple skin, vinegar. Ghost of coffee bean.
T. Mild roasted malt, vinegary acetic acid, sour plum. Very acetic with only a hint of the malt character.
M. Medium-bodied with almost no carbonation.
O. Not undrinkable, but a bit too much acetic acid at the expense of the base porter. Not something I'd have again.

2.13/5 rDev -39.7%
A: Completely flat dark brown pour. Obviously no head or lacing. Doubt this was intentional.
S: Intensely sour dark fruits aroma. A little roasted malt trying to peek through. A little nail polish remover in there.
T: Lots of tart dark fruits up front. Turns into kind of a chocolatey BOOM huge wave of mouth-puckering sourness all of the sudden. Very tart, very sour, pretty much obliterates anything else in the beer. Get a drying, leathery aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied, very sour and very dry.
O: I had to pour this one out. It's like drinking fruit-flavored acetone mixed with some bile. No porter aspects to be found, this is a pure sour bomb.
