Tap at Pigs Ear 2012. The blurb on this beer sounded amazingly interesting, taking a russian imperial stout and adding brett. The beer is jet black in colour, and has a somewhat boozy malty aroma. The taste was surprisingly smooth, at the rounded end of the imperial stout universe rather than the extreme bitterness/roasty end. I couldnt detect too much impact from brett. Overall a pleasant (but almost boringly so) imperial stout.
