COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Midnight Brett is chocolate brown in color, brewed with 2-Row, Midnight wheat, raw wheat and rye malt. It was hopped with a blend of Perle, Glacier and Simcoe hops. The beer was fermented with our house strain of Brettanomyces in stainless tanks. The finished beer has the aroma and flavor of fresh berries, sour cherries and a slight roasted character. The finish is pleasantly tart and fruity making this beer very drinkable.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2013
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.

ROGUE (2156) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JUL 22, 2016
On tap at SLL tasting. Poured an opaque cola color with moderate light tan head. Smelled like sweet apple cider and tart vinegar, with some funky oak and sour and brown sugar. Tastes of funky oak and tart vinegar, with some sour apple and sweet brown sugar and minerals. It had a mostly clean and sour aftertaste. Palate was fairly thick with lots of carbonation. Big bubbly body.

Palme (3935) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
On tap @ Barleycorn. Quite a dark looking one this, bronze brown in the glass with a tall really lasting and heavy lacing off-white head. Sweetish malty nose at first. It has both chocolate and nuts up front on the nose. A little bit of coffee and dark Belgian candied sugar. Like the aroma quite a lot, but I did not gent anything bretty at all to be honest. Makes up for it in the taste! Wow, what is this? Itís thick and oily on the texture. If I didnít know better Iíd say this was a 10+ percent bodied beer and itís smooth and almost creamy on the bubbles. Lots of coffee and dark types of malts here. Itís a little chocolate wrappey but with a jammy undertone. Really sweetish and tasty. interesting and a great beer to kick of the NYC summer holidays 2015. Btw. did order a Session Brett, got a Midnight Brett. 08.06.2015

Aroma: malty but not too sweet; perhaps picking up some rye; Appearance: dark chocolatey brown with off white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: slightly tart but not overwhelming; nice rye/malt backbone; Palate: medium body with long, tart/sweet finish; Overall: better than expected; would buy again.

DiarmaidBHK (4151) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle from Appalachian vintner. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Nice Brett notes on the nose. The brett on the tongue combined with the roasted malt created almost a fruity note on the tongue. Lovely tartness. Finished clean. Sour but still quaffable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bg80 (84) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2016
2013 bottle taste. Dark vinous, chocolate, wood flavors. Tart but primarily funky at this point. Kind of like a dark sour Abbey beer aged in wine barrels. Not my favorite, but not bad.

Kinz (3713) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Poured deep brown, slight head. Aroma was tart, hints of cherries, bit of barnyard funk. Flavor was at first bracingly tart, cherry and stone fruit, slight chocolate. As it warmed, the sour notes died back, the funk came up some, as well as some chocolate malt notes to complement the dark fruits. Ultimately complex and deeply satisfying. Good stuff.
