Thanks UDbeernut for sharing -- bit of a gusher, batch #2

The beer pours a a slightly hazy dark black/brown with a thin tan head that laces. The nose is wine barrel forward with a touch if funk and smoke...quite pungent. The taste is a strange mix of smoke and wine barrel with a lingering vinous dryness. It's medium bodied mouthfeel is smokey with a touch of sweetness upfront followed by a dominating wine barrel funk. Definitely unique tasting and has the great vinous feel that I was hoping for when I poured my glass. I'd recommend this beer to those who want a 1-2x try of a funky, tart, vinous porter, but not for an everyday drink.

Bottle from Batch 2 thanks Mcallister.
Good thing I was near the sink when I opened this. Huge rush of foam from a self pouring bottle, I filled my glass and then the bottle she kept on giving. The color is a porter all right, but the rest is lambic like. Smells of tart fruit and a bit of funk. The flavor is very funky and tart. The Porter is gone and I can’t even say I like the lambic that it left behind. Another casualty from my cellar.
