at the end. Taste is similar to a wwb series but tarter from the wood. Taste is dark grapes and malt into light brett funk rounded out by peaches, pear, bourbon and tartness. Nothing over the top but once again a great brett beer that no one else could make. Wishing he did a normal ueast run of this.

Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing. Pours a deep brown/black color with tan head. Brett funk, bourbon, and alcohol burn aromas. Quite tart, some sour flavors. Big difference between the aroma and flavor. Very interesting.

Bottle @ JetsonFest III. Pours a clear, dark brown appearance with a thin brown head. Moderate alcohol, toasted malty, light chocolate, a bit funky, a bit boozy whiskey aroma. Flavor is cola, chocolate, caramel, funky tropical fruity, and moderately boozy. Fairly tart, puckering finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasting courtesy of dschiller. Pours a dark brown, closer to black with an off white head. Big sharp sour aromas with some fruits (raisins and dark cherry) as well. Flavors are vinegar, roast, and then some dark cherry, raisin and plum-like flavors with just a dash of semi-sweet chocolate. Palate is a little thin, perhaps from the brett induced carbonation that lifts the weightyness of this beer just a tad. Overall, this is one of the best in this style that I have sampled, great drinking experience.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks again, Aaron. Almost black in color with a khaki head. Big vinegar and dark fruit. Quite sour. Lemon, bourbon, roasted malt, citric acidity, raisin, and cherry. There’s a very strong vinegar flavor to this. Lots of balsamic notes, some cherry, raisin, and plum. Roasted malt, bourbon, lemon, and some oak. Quite dry and puckering.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml. Corked and caged bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, light beige head, with extensive lacing, over a brownish black (SRM 35) body....nose is light bourbon, chocolate, barnyard funk.....taste is hints of sweet, cocoa, barnyard funk, light balsamic, finishing with a lingering mildly acid bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds a light acid tingle. This is a lovely experiment. The Baltic Porter malt backbone, combined with the Brett create an almost Flanders Brown in both aroma and flavors. The bourbon, balsamic, barnyard funk and light cocoa work remarkably well. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Bottle, 02/20/2013. Pours nearly black, creamy tan head with great retention and lacing for the style, sticking around for over several minutes. Aroma of chocolate raisin cookie, caramel, tart dark fruitiness with roast porter notes, bourbon. Taste is light chocolate malts, tart cherries and roast character, lactic and bitter in the finish, bourbon in the aftertaste. Medium body, smooth. My favorite of the series.

375ml bottle thanks to Aaron. Pours a deep dark brown with a thin tan head and some lacing. Aroma is funky, Brett, sour cherry. Medium on the palate with light, soft carbonation. Flavor is sour, cherry, light bourbon, vanilla, more Brett, with a light sour bourbon finish that lingers for a while. Interesting.
