22. Thanks d! Pours a murky dark brown with a scant tan head. Big sweet cookieish nose, lots of almonds and biscotti and vanilla. Big tangy overripe fruit over that. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Tangy skinny plums, almonds, vanilla, and a bit of funk on the mid palate. Minerally finish.

Bottle. Muddy dark brown color, small tan head, delicate lacing. Aroma of cobwebs, dust, vanilla, dusty insides of antique furniture. Taste is wrinkled pruned, shriveled dates and normal raisins, with moderate funk. Looks like some age has done this one right.

22 oz bottle from the brewery. I wasnt really able to produce a head on this one. Has a turbid brown appearance. Not really impressive looking, but average, I guess. Smell is of brett, and a subtle oak. I smell raisin, too, but not much of it. Flavor is a soft leather, and chocolate, with a brett bite that doesnt really meld well with the overall theme, if there ever was one. The raisin, fruit flavor jumps in at the end, and adds an interesting dimension to this beer. Im digging it at times, and not, at others. Overall, a decent beer with a relatively nice brett bite, but as others have pointed out, I dont really feel that this is/was necessary. Decent stuff, but not fantastic.

Bottle thanks to, "AKfaust". Colour... medium brown with no head. Nose... definitely some funk here as well as sweet oakiness. Palate... a bit more funk on the palate and a somewhat smoky aspect that inter-plays fairly well with the malt thought there is a sirop-like aspect that isnt sitting well with me. This doesnt seem to me like and old ale. I cant help but wonder if this wouldve been better without the brett funk. This ale just seems to be unsure of its identity.

22 oz bottle. Hazy copper/brown with a small fizzy off white head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, musty oak and some dried fruit. Flavor is sweet malty caramel malt, tanic oak and a light funky brett. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly syrupy mouth feel. Im not a huge fan of this beer, its another beer that would probably be better without the brett.
