Had this one at the UDRBM, 31-07-2010. Brown colored brew. Sour, brett aroma. Flavor is sour, some malts. Not bad, not outstanding.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle from two sources, BlackForestCO (thanks Jake, your bottle is still unopened) and Sam from H24, thanks for bringing this to our fantasy football draft. Rating #87. Pours a super dense dark brow with a thin light tan head full of tight tiny bubbles. Slight hard candy sweet aroma, light sourness and a toasty underlying scent that was hard to pin down, very interesting. Light tartness, but very silky at the same time, light carbonation and more of sweet toasty malt that I got in the aroma, not bad. (1349)

Bottle. Trade with Daknole. Thanks a bunch.! It pours dark brown with a medium creamy off white head. The aroma is loads of caramel, some acidic and loads of barley. Sweet but very nice. Sweet roasted flavour with lovely notes of dark fruit and barley. Fantastic!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 10.0%. Roasted aroma, hint of vanilla and tartness. Clear dark brown colour. No head. Good sweet flavour, some vanilla. Dark sugars. Good alcohol level. Nice. Does not taste Bretty, but I am sure the Brett helps balance the beer. Too strong. Would have scored higher with me with lower ABV.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Plovmand. Pours a reddish brown with a tiny off-white head. The aroma has very sweet roasted malts and nuts, very vague whiff of Brett. Solid body, low carbonation with nuts and caramel, licorice allsorts. No real bitterness. Disappointingly little Brett here. 140810

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 mL bottle, corked & caged...fairly fresh 2010 sample from the Rare Beer Club: extremely dark brown body, with reddish-tan highlights at the edges. Off tan head that lingers in a thin film across the top and gathers slightly thicker at the edges. Lightly smokey, bretty aroma with raisins, ginger, and nutty malts. Thick, gooey palate, overly ripe plums and currants form a sticky cream throughout the mouth. Though I am not a huge fan of the mouthfeel, the flavours are solid - deep, robust nuttiness combined with a subtle, sour brett and creamy dark fruit. Really nice...I am excited for the possibilities of this one over the next couple of years.

Bottle shared by JCB. Thanks Jason! This was pretty weak. Could not smell or taste any brett character at all. Might of helped this brew, but I’m not really sure. Pretty run of the mill brown ale with more alcohol, light char, a bit of cocoa. A big meh.
