I really don't like this sour version of the style, but it is a well made brew and appropriate for the style.
It's pretty in the glass, with a big light brown head. The aroma gives away the funky door that is to come. The taste is profoundly sour, especially when too cold. This improved to a nice balance when warmer. The aftertaste followed suit, being much better as I let it sit in the sun a couple minutes on this hot day.
Although I warmed up to this brew I think I will avoid it in the future.

3.68/5 rDev -6.8%
$ 2.09/12 oz bottle from Lager Mill
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, hint of chocolate
Head large (5 cm), light brown, creamy, rapidly diminishing to I cm layer
Lacing fair to good – wide complete rings and narrow rings with stalactites
Body dark brown, clear
Flavor of slightly smoked malt, slightly sweet initially, but bitter ending has a long hang time. No alcohol, no diacetyl. Can’t tell if the bitterness is from hops of from roasted malt.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation
Not a bad example of a brown porter/London porter. I personally don’t care for the peat smokiness but otherwise not a bad beer.
