Just a mess of a beer. What a terrible idea. Nothing recognizable in the base beer. Some nice citrus notes here and there. However, mostly phenolic and tannic with overtones of nail polish remover.

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.
