Served chilled in an over sized wine glass.
Purchased at the brewery
Appearance: Fairly typical for a porter - very deep red body topped by a good sized off white head. Head retention and lacing are average.
Smell: Hmmmm, this doesn't smell very appealing! Old tree bark and tart fruits dominate, with roasted malt and chocolate only just present. This certainly smells a tad bit off!
Taste: Blegh, this is certainly infected! Initially light tartness and an odd earthiness with traditional porter notes are almost completely absent!
Mouthfeel: Light body with unpleasantly harsh carbonation.
Overall: It doesn't feel right reviewing a beer that is clearly infected, but I feel that since I bought this beer directly from the brewery and they assured me that it was fresh, they are responsible for the infection!
I will review this beer again, but only if I have the chance to try it with the brewer, so I do not have to waste my money again!
