3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft from an Allagash event at Samís Quik Shop. Pour is dark brown with a modest dark beige head. Nose shows tart blueberries and chocolate malts. Hint of roast and blackberries as well. Taste blends tart, sweet, and dry well. Not overly complex, but much more refreshing than some wild ales, especially dark ones at 7.5%. Tasty.

A beautiful dark fruity Brett-based offering from Allagash. Complex notes of sour berry and wine, with a hint of coffee. An excellent complement to the Golden Brett.

Keg @ Beer Run. Brown with a small head. Somewhat buttery on the nose. Red fruits, toasted brown bread. Ashy malts. The taste is tangy red berry, old coins. Strawberry preserve sweetness. Moderately funky. More charred grain. Medium body, soft carbonation. A bit hot, but decently drinkable. OK.

Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest, thick black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, anise, chocolate, slight spicy brett notes, hints of roast, slight nutty notes, touch of coffee in there as well.

Draught at Breukelen Bier Merchants. Pours like black like a stout with a good frothy head and some legs. Aroma is pear, apple, a bit of roast, a healthy dose or tartness and funk. Flavor is similar to the golden--heavier fruit, riper and redder, more sour--but with obvious rye, roast throughout. Feel is lively, watery, grainy, with a rind tickle at the end. Like it quite a bit. Very drinkable.
