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 Sam’s 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.

JDBaker11058 (1538) - Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Appearance: dark cola brown with a finger of creamy tan head that shrinks to a thick cap and has decent lacing. Aroma: sour stone fruit, with a bit of cherry and raspberry, with some tart raisin; there’s also some brown sugar and roasty notes. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: slightly tart and sour and a little dry, with some yeasty spices and roasty notes lingering. Notes: Almost like a combination of a dubbel and a flanders red. Nice. Bottle from Sarah for Beerthday.

Tap @ Kiabaca w James tonight 07.22.2015. Black pour, small light brown head. Licorice/jagermeister nose with some cherry or stone fruit. Mouthfeel is light/thin and notes of sweet purple grape juice. Almost tart but not. High carbonation.

yngwie (15379) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2015
On tap at Monk’s Cafe, Philadelphia. A hazy reddish dark brown beer topped by a small, dense, beige head. The aroma is funky, with cigar, leather, some dark sugar and candied cherries, and a touch of wood. Some stable in the flavor, as well as the funky leathery touch from the aroma, and cherry hints, dark sugar and some raisins. Rather dry on the palate, full-bodied and lightly effervescent. Lasting finish. A super complex and tasteful beer, but a tad weird I think. 150622

MadRobin (2392) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 30, 2015
On tap at Scion in Silver Spring, MD. This 2015 version is listed at 7.3% ABV. Opaque, black-brown with a nice khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of tart dark fruit (cherries, plums and berries), mild chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is very similar to the nose, but much fruitier. A bittersweet blackberry flavor comes through nicely. The roasted malt comes through at the end. The chocolate is there, but well hidden. Medium body and medium/low carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FatPhil (10841) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 24, 2015
750ml bottle - thanks VastActiv!
I had the honour of opening this bottle - it opened with a lovely resonant pop, but not even a hint of a gush, not even a worm - nicely done. (In contrast to the Hill Farmstead gusher earlier.) Beautiful - almost black, but with a large tight off-white head, persistent and sticky. Big bretty aroma. Nice roasty body, burnt but soft. Brett working well here, adding character, but not sharpness (again, in contrast to the Hill Farmstead). Mellow bretty roast finish. A fairly simple recipe, but a well-thought out one, and very well executed. Alcohol well covered too. Nice one - I’ll come back to this at the end if there’s any left. (There was :-) )

Draught @ Monk’s Café, Philadelphia, PA
Pours dark reddish brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, funk, brett, some fruitiness, tartness and wood. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter with a light sour with a long slightly dry, fruity, brett, funky and woody finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
