The brett hasn’t made this a sour beer, it’s rounded off, given a great aroma, with a sweet cherry pie flavour. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, prickly and very drinkable.

magicmn (120) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 4, 2015
Very dark black colour, looks like oil what i reallly like:) Low carbonisation. Aroma is coffee, bit roasted plus very light soar tones. TAste is full of special roassted malts notes - coffee, chocolate, roasted bread plus bitter enough. Full body but its like dry version of RIS. REally inteesting but i cant feel any brets in taste.

Bouteille 33cl merci à Pierre. BB 06/2033. De couleur brune foncée, col fin moka doré au verre. Arôme offre peu en terme de brett à proprement parlé. Par contre ce dernier accompagné de cette base maltée conséquente donne un bouquet original qui rappelle bien le bacon avec des notes de cigares et fumé. Palais est malté, caramel et grillé le tout sur de belles notes fumées. Le brett reste quant à lui assez discret. On ressent plus une influence laissant penser au fumé et presque au bbq. Le fini malté est centré sur un profil chocolaté, grillé, carapâle.

Countbeer (5236) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Thin brown head, more of a lacing, on top of a black beer. Aromas of roast, manure, dark chocolate, nettle, liquorice, wood roast, spices, some hints of rubber and herbs. Flavours of brett, roast, good bitter, some berries, wood roast, some liquorice, hint of coffee and some A good bitter imperial stout with a somewhat crispy/fresh brett tone which is quite nice, but than soon the bitter darkness takes over. Aftertaste is pretty strong bitter, roast, some wood roast and some coffee with a rubber/brett dark chocolate touch. Low carbo, creamy thick almost oily close to silky mouthfeel, full body and a sticky oily bitter texture... Damn this is good bitter, interesting brew, pretty nice!

harrisoni (14979) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle from the brewery and drunk at home. Black beer lasting tan head. Bretty aroma. Some choc some tar some molasses then a lot of dry brett. Hides abv well. It’s likeable to me. some milkiness. I like the dark choc and a little bit of espresso coffee. Brett is good. I liked the mix of dark choc and brett. Good.

Palate: Thick smooth rich texture, medium thick body, average/prickly carbonation, abrupt rich malty, biscuity, chocolate finish. Comments: Good, glass lace but should have probably aged it.

Gary (1630) - west London and, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Bottled: a Bretty nose , with licorice. Roasted malts. Chocolateb. Deep ass beige, with beige foamy head. On the palate, sweet rich texture like fudge covered chocolate. Notes of toast. A Bretty acidity is there in the spirit but a mix match really, as a Brett fan! A decent beer epithet way. .r8. Smooth on cheapskate, winery and st, complex and interesting. A point more for crazy texture.

Bullit (4159) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 9, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of Noize, thanks! Bottle date june 2013. Black coloured with a light brown head. Nose is initially roasted malts and chocolate, immediately followed by brett, manure, musty. Interesting. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, brett, horseblanket, farmyard. Develops in a roasted, very bitter drink, towards being gritty. Finish is fairly bitter.

skortila (4816) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2014
Bottled. 33cl full sample. The aroma is very roasty, almost charcoal. Initially I only got charcoal, no funk, got this just after a few sips. Black coloured beer with athin, beige lacing. The taste is moderate bitter and the bitterness lingers. It is complemented with some nice funky tones and a very roasted malty, full body. I don’t agree with the flavour text, that it is very drinkable. It is very tasty, but no; it wouldn’t score high on the sessionista list. This beer is pretty weird initially, even unbalanced, but when used to it after say half a glass, it showed its elegance. (And no, that’s not because the 12% starts kicking in; it was my first and only beer this evenening) No beer for the ordinary tickers. :-P
