The beer comes in a dark brown, black color.

The aroma has roasted malt and chocolate, but then also a strong amount of Brett and funk.

The flavor follows of sweet caramel, roasted dark malts, molasses, and coffee. Then there's some yeasty notes along with a dry funky Brett finish. Light to medium body.

A quite interesting brew.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color porter with a large bright brown color head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of roasted malt with loads of black chocolate notes. Taste is dominated by dry roasted malt with loads of rich black chocolates notes with very light Brett notes also noticeable. Body is full with really nice creamy texture with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I really enjoyed that one with nice creamy black chocolate notes but I can’t say that the Brett notes were very intense or easily identifiable.

Poured a massive chocolate malt colored all head which took a long time to settle down. The body is dark as coffee, even held to the light. Not much smell to it, even as it warmed, mainly malt. The taste is divine though with rich double malt, cola, and even a touch of sour to it. Long, fairly sour finish. "Doppel-Porter" indeed.

This oddity is a Baltic porter brewed with brettanomyces. Served at Belmont Station in Portland.

Dark but thin-looking — fairly clear and watery at the edges, with black fading into lighter oak. An expansive, creamy head of beach sand-colored froth plants itself for a long time, only leaving after painting the sides of the glass in full sheets of lace.

Odd aroma. It’s almost like a chocolate-covered raisin — or a raisin-covered chocolate. Big dark fruits merge: sweet raisin, strawberry, bubble gum. Touches of bitter dark chocolate and mild funk.

Smoky, dry flavor. Clean and mildly smoky in the front, though the swallow brings a subtle sweet dark fruit note and even more smooth smoke. A touch of sweetness and funk from the brett, along with a weird, almost Belgian yeast note. A hint of raisin and oats. Spicy black pepper lingers on the tongue after the swallow.

The creamy medium body holds together very well as it moves. Just a touch of tingly carbonation.

An odd beer. Mild but drinkable.

On tap at The Lion's Pride.
Came to the table a solid black color with a small bubbly tan head that dissipates to a cap. Smells of roast and chocolate with an earthy spicy edge to it. I can't find very much funk in the nose. Flavors of roast, caramel, and chocolate with hints of tart cherry and an earthy menthol thing going on in the background. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a roasty chalky mouthfeel. Its a decent enough porter with a hint of funk that hides in the background but you know its there. I almost wanted more funk or none at all, its in a weird middle ground.

A - Pours a fairly dark brown with a big two fingers of frothy khaki-chocolate head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some good lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some dark caramel malts, dark fruits, Brett, bready malts, with some smoke, vanilla, molasses, and earthy hops.

T - Starts off with some roasted chocolate malts with some cherry, raisin, and other dark fruits and some candi sugar. Through the middle, some funky Brett comes through with some earthy hops, smoke, vanilla, Belgian yeast, and molasses. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate and other dark malts, with some dark fruit, funky Brett, smoke, and some earthy hops.

M - Medium-light bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet, roasty, and funky finish.

D - Very drinkable. The beer is a bit over carbonated so it comes off a bit thin. Otherwise, there are a lot of really great flavors in this one.

Not a gusher but the bottle opened with a loud hiss and 3/4 of the glass is immediately filled with a dark beige head that takes forever to settle. After I finally decanted the whole bottle it looks decent with the exception of the chunky, fizzy head.

Funky, musty aroma with a really strong Brett presence that overpowers most of the other elements. Grassy barnyard funk and sour acidity with subtle roasted malt notes buried underneath. Malts become stronger as it warms with subtle smoke but the brett still dominates.

On the thinner side of medium bodied with really tight carbonation and a tart, musty brett presence that lingers over the roasted/smokey malt notes into a bone dry finish. Slightly tart/acetic with a very prominent dry brett character that again overpowers most of the other flavors. As it warms, the malt flavor comes a bit more to the forefront but it's still heavily masked by all of the dry, bratty funk. Too one dimensional for my liking and not pleasant at all. I like bretted beers but it just doesn't work here.

BE WARNED: This beer is a horrible gusher. Like a 2 glass gusher. I thought just having my glass at hand would be enough but it wasn't. Open this beer when it's already in a glass because it basically shot out.

A: Incalculable amount of head as this gushed for so long. Tan fluffy and rocky and with great carbonation. It's extremely dark. Really deep, almost black brown.

S: The aroma is all over the place. I get a lot of rich, deep chocolate notes, some earthy, smoky qualities and a slight tang of acidity. There's also a certain musk to it as well. It smells great.

T: I actually really dig the complexity of this beer now that I can drink it. Tons of rich porter notes with chocolate, french roast coffee, some dark fruit notes. Not to mention the earthy hop qualities. It still has that musty funk to it as well as a slight sour quality. It's actually quite good.

M: Really rich and fluffy/creamy mouthfeel. Unfortunately almost all of the carbonation left this beer.

O: Wow, this one surprised me. In more ways than one! It started off with that ridiculous explosion of beer and then turned into a really complicated porter that I enjoyed. Veeery interesting. Worth a try, but be prepared with like 4 huge glasses!
