Bottle was a booby prize during suitcasejons craft beer nerd blind tasting challenge. Not sure what this beer was intended to be like but right now it is, we'll lets say interesting. Lactic and sour with hints of a chocolate porter on the back end. Grape sour and lacto dominate things but it is drinkable, just unique. Super unique. Soft nail polish remover over cocoa powder. Drank from a new glarus tasting glass.

The Unplugged series Old English Porter pours dark brown while ruby-red highlights mark the edges. A thin tan head caps the brew and provides a moderate level of lacing. Upon first sniff we were taken aback. Are English Porters supposed to be lactic smelling? Turns out this version from New Glarus was, and we couldn't be more excited. The lactic notes are joined with roasted malt as well as a touch of caramel, smoke, and balsamic vinegar. Truly, a wonderful bouquet! The first taste reveals a delightful tartness that hangs on the palate from sip to sip, start to finish. A treasure-trove of flavors swirl underneath the tartness. Toffee, chocolate, and lighter coffee flavors remind the drinker of roasted malt character while hints of vanilla, cherry, and dark fruits build a solid base underneath the sourness. Moderately carbonated, Old English Porter is medium bodied and slightly slick. Guess it is time we plan another road trip through western Wisconsin
