Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2011
2009 bottle shared at the 6th annual Richmond Industry Gathering, 11/27/11. I was told by the guy who brought this it is the brett version, but I’m not seeing much sign of it. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Big toffee aroma with citrus hops. The taste is toffee malts, citrus hops and very faint brett. Might even miss it if you weren’t looking for it. Medium-full bodied.

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2010
12oz bottle pours a translucent, orange amber with very little beige head. Aroma of butterscotch, caramel, coconut, vanilla. No brett in the nose. Flavor is sweet, boozy, vanilla, coconut, butterscotch. No brett in the flavor. Finish is full bodied and sticky. No brett anywhere, which was a tad disappointing. If I wasn’t expecting brett I might have really liked this. It was good as it was, but I wanted the brett.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Andy - thank you sir! Dark amber color, no significant head or lacing. Aroma of whisky, figs, prunes. Taste is similar. Not much sourness. Tasty.

ryan (3187) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - APR 10, 2010
Very similar to the regular. Lots of bourbon in the nose. Just a touch of cherry and berry in the taste. Very nice, just doesn’t have the brett.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 9, 2009
9th rating for this beer.12oz bottle from Big Bad Joe at H24. Sweet, malty, lots of dark fruitiness. Has a dark copper color, not much head, but it was thin and a little off-white. More sweetness, figs and other dark fruits, slight hop bitterness as well, this is very well done and very tasty, too bad Joe only has half a case left. (973)

TheBeerGod (5047) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Sample from a bottle in the VIP tent at WBF Raleigh on 5/2/09. This beer and the Lost Abbey beer pretty much made the VIP costs worth it. From a 12 ounce bottle. Cloudy copper with a short tan head. Nose is strong oak, caramel, alcohol, light Bretty notes and sweet malts. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, vanilla, molasses, more oak and soft Bretty notes. Body is silky smooth and medium overall. Ends with more caramel, oak, vanilla, light funk, sweet, chewy malts, and molasses. Awesome stuff! Multiple samples. This was our goto beer in the tent.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2009
Draft at Capone’s. Pours ruby ruddy brownish with nose of oaky, woody, sour mashy and figgy fruit, leathery malt, vanilla, brown sugar, slight funk. Tastes spirity, complex, with a palate pounding cognacy malty flavor, plus woody, oaky, brown sugary, figgy, and cherry/blackberry notes late. To me, this one tasted like a slightly funky version of the regular Millennium, which is just fine by me. I feel this one is a bit low on the rating scale, and that pisses me off a little bit.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
Draft @ Capones. Nice reddish color with a sweet and sour oaky aroma - lots of sugar, citrus, and vinous fruits featured. Flavor starts sweet with some burnt sugar and oak and settling nicely into some sour funk. Quite interesting, though not as good as Iron Hill’s bretty Barleywine by any means.

adrian910ss (2277) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2009
On draft at Capones. Pours a slightly hazy orange caramel with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of candied sugar, malt, dark fruit, oak wood, and vanilla. Taste of candied sugar, malt, dark fruit, vanilla, oak and bourbon. Very minimal Brettanomyces detected. Maybe age will bring this flavor out more, but kinda hard to tell its here.
