3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ SD Taproom. Deep coffe brown with a small beige ring. Nose of Brett, dry oak and some dried dark fruits. Flavor is similar to nail polish with some dark fruits and again dry oak. The nail polish notes are not necessarily bad, tasty one from Karl.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a rusty brown with a slight halo head.
Nose is mostly just acrid and unpleasant.
Taste is pretty bad, you can taste hints of whiskey, no RIS roast or body at all, very thin, medicinal, very vinegary, hints of sourness and tart, if someone told me this was an RIS that was hit with brett I would tell them to GTFO. No funk i expect from brett. My hopes were a little too high because I love a soured stout, but this one just falls flat on its face.

On tap at downtown Johnnie Browns with DaSilky1. Thick body. Boozy. Some Brett. Some light sourness. Black color. A little weird, but still good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Downtown Johnny Browns during SDBW: Pours dark brown, thin to no head. Nose has notes of chocolate cake, cola, spice, molassis, toffee, booze, bourbon, and vanilla. Flavors are boozy and somewhat tart around the edges, with roasty malts, cola, and christmas spice. Palate is somewhat flimsy though and it seems to fall apart after a while.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on tap at DTJB at their Barrel Night for SDBW. The description pulled me in; A RIS aged in Whiskey Barrels with Brett added. This guy pours a free flowing flat black with no real head. The aroma is soured whiskey. The flavors hit hard with an acetone flavor the disappears in time to taste a nice dose of whiskey. As the beer warm the overpowering acetone dwindles and a warm dark chocolate flavor emerges with the roasted malts and oak. The mouth is medium to full bodied with a good creaminess. An interesting beer that is much better warm!
