375ml bottle into snifter.
A: Pours deep brown with a finger of fluffy light brown head. The head slowly faded into a fuzzy and lasting film, and thick streaks of lacing were left down the glass.
S: Predominately I get notes of roasted malt on the nose, with hints of lambic yeast, bubblegum, and vanilla.
T: My first impression is the flavor is very metallic. I get notes of roasted malt, mild chocolate, vanilla, and slight berry acidity. The lambic yeast adds an interesting fruitiness to the beer, and a very slight tartness as well. The finish is lightly sweet with a hint of spice as well, and the aftertaste is roasted with a touch of smoke and ash lingers long after the swallow. There’s a hint of sweet cherry juice in there as well.
M: Very fluffy carbonation that froths up on my palate. Medium body, fluffy and airy mouthfeel.
O: A very interesting beer, and I enjoyed it, but it’s probably something wouldn’t seek out again. The flavors of the porter are light and clean, and the lambic yeast adds an interesting complexity. Overall though, it’s pretty straight forward.

A: black ale with a finger of tan foamy bubbles
S: hints of sour berry, muted cocoa, some husky, dankness, mild suggestions of cold espresso
T: sour and tart forward - dark and tart; had a grainy character, suggestions of citrus pith and herb in the dry roasted malt; funky and spunky
M: smooth but with prickle of tartness and the fizzing hum of the carbonation; drying on the finish; drinks crisp - even warmed considerably it stayed lively
O: porter fans oughtta check it out, but be braced for the wild ale tartness - it isn't overwhelming or anything, but it was omnipresent in my drink. Wild ale fans, 'specially if you like Midnight Brett or other black/dark ale-sour/wild hybrids - oughtta check it out, too. I'm neither a big porter nor wild ale drinker, but this was one of those beers that kinda defied style boundaries, and taken as a singular entity/entry into the world of beer, it was quite good. The porter base was very mellow and supportive, while the yeasts kept every sip very alive and bright with a dusky tartness.

Had this on 2014-05-30 in Lancaster, PA at Hunger 'N Thirst (from tasting notes)
A - Opaque dark brown with a short tan head.
S - Mild chocolate and roasted grain (food odors were present)
T - Medium roasted grain with some char, some tartness, light chocolate with a balanced, bitter finish. Very nice.
M - Light-medium body and light carbonation. Pretty dry.
O - Very good example of an English Porter.
Serving type: on-tap
