Tap at ACBF. Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma holds notes of tart dark fruit, roast, and chocolate. Flavor is marked by cherry, brett, chocolate, and some roasty bitterness. Good but a bit thin, and not all that complex.

Nearly opaque, dark brown color with a light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, some cocoa, light brett, and a touch of smoke. Taste of much of the same, the brett was light. This did finish dry.

On draft mid out and back bike ride at IH Media. Poured a dark near black with choco brown edges on a sunny day. Choco tan colored head and spotty lacing all the way down. Aroma was chocolate, roast, and some funky earthiness. The flavor was roasty milk chocolate, bret funkiness, cellar earthiness, citrus cherries in the after taste. Mouthfeel was full but cut thinner by the acidity. Nice Belgian Stout, would like to drink next to JP.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Ithaca Ale House Memorial Day weekend 2011. Served in a goblet.
Pours a medium to dark brown color with a good tan head that stuck around as a thin cap for awhile before fading and leaving some spotty lacing. The nose carried some slight roast along with chocolate and a bit of brown sugar. Beyond that, a moderate amount of funk, though that didn’t really come into play until the flavor and finish. Good funky presence in the taste along with some brown sugar and slight roast. Interesting combo that I really enjoyed. Medium body and a somewhat-dry finish. Good brew.
Serving type: on-tap

Tap @ Goodbar. Nose is a bunch of raspberry & bitter dark chocolate, a bit tart. If you didn’t tell me this was a brett beer I wouldn’t know it. Flavor follows with raspberry & really nice dark chocolate, with some chalky sour cherry juice. If you gave this to me blind I’d say it was a well aged baltic porter. I’ll echo Kramer - this is like the NG olde english porter, but way better done.
