Pours clear and dark cola brown. In a Spatan dimpled mug it appears black. The creamy chestnut head easily reaches one and a half inches before slowly compressing and leaving spotty lace.

The aroma is soapy with nuts and cola.

Flavor is sweet with faint sourness. Cola and vanilla are prominent, followed by chocolate and a quick mild finish.

The body is medium to light with a soft creamy texture. Carbonation is faint and alcohol is well concealed.

While this is an enjoyable beer, it is lackluster. Aside from its 7% alcohol, one could easily sit back and converse with friends while enjoying this some afternoon.

Bottle from Edgemont. Dark pour no head. A bitter and dark malted porter. The lambic is at the forefront from beginning to end. Notes of sour fruit, oak and vanilla top it off.

A porter brewed with "Lambic yeast" which resulted in a very interesting combination of roasty and barnyard flavors and aromas. Crazy funkiness in this beer. It's gotta be (hands down) the stinkiest (in the best way possible) beer I've ever had!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Nice brown color. Big head, coarse lace.
Smell is mild, a touch on the sour side, almost Lactobacillus-scented.
Taste is mildly malty, not at all bitter, some sour notes.
Mouthfeel is moderate-to-light, fully carbonated.
Finish is nonexistent.
Overall, a decent Belgian beer, but not at all why I buy porter.

Black in color with no light penetration. There's an inch of creamy tightly packed dense brown head. Moderate lacing. I smell tart wild yeast, and sweet dark malt. I'm tasting an odd blend of sweet dark malt and tart wild yeast that creates a frenzied clash. The mouth is warm and viscous.
