COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Veritas 011 is a Barleywine aged in McCall Cognac Barrels for 11 months. We added some fresh nectarines over the summer and hit it with a splash of Brett Clausenii.

It is not sour and may only develop a bit a fruity Brett qualities over time, so we aren’t expecting a full blown sour ale. ABV is 12.85%.

douglas88 (7233) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle at RBSG thanks to Jer. Pours a cloudy dark orange color with a medium white head. A big sweet malty nose, fruit and oak. The flavor is heavily a sugary sweet English style BW, huge dark caramel and dry wood, some fruity sweet elements. The Brett is adding tropical fruit and dust, just awesome.

Bottle thanks to Jer. A: Cloudy brown/gold, no head. N: Fig, leather, oxidation, metallic elements, caramel, and toffee. A bit of cognac in here, but no noticeable nectarine at this point. T: Broken down sweetness that’s cloying. M: Medium oily body, some alcohol. O: Thinking this one was better fresh. Seems to be oxidizing pretty heavily at this point; I really wouldn’t want this again.

hayduke (3767) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 23, 2015
This was a bottle from the vertical tasting of Veritas at the RBSG. Pored brown with no appreciable head. Nose is ripe fruit and the brett presence is there. Medium plus in body. The flavor is brown sugar, raisins, and vanilla, and some fermented fruit. Some alcohol shows in the sweet finish. This has been my least favorite in the series. I think I could have done without the brett.

mcberko (9323) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark murky brown with no head. Nose brings out murky stone fruits and funky brett. Flavour is cloyingly sweet, with stone fruits, oxidation and candied sugar. Not really that complex. The brett is awkward here. Very strange beer. It’s cool to sip but I wouldn’t want much.

December 27, 2014 - bottle shared by Brett, bottle 205. Brown pour with limited bubbly head. Aroma was fruity, red wine, toffee / caramel and some alcohol. Taste was very sweet initially, then fruity and finished with a mildly tart alcohol. I had wanted to try this for a while so thanks big time to Brett!
