Great aroma with malt, fruit, Brett. Huge frothy tan head with loads of lace. Flavors like nose, but very low carbonation gets in the way of it being too good. ClarkVV (7099) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 25, 2017

Sizable dark beige head atop steadily recedes to ring atop a clear, amber-golden-chestnut body.
Lots of clove, anise, cinnamon and black pepper phenolics give way to raisin, caramel, vanilla and strong, heavily spicy, phenolic Brett primary notes which are always bizarre and very different than when used supplementary or purely in secondary/bottling. Rich, rum raisin, long apple brandy and moderate alcohol linger on the finish.
In the mouth it's rich, fruity, malty and full of a very strong, spicy, one-two phenol and booze punch, on the finish. Raisin, vanilla and caramel are quite sweet, with moderate bread and fruit alongside it. Just too much for me. Probably too young, I guess, but as is, there's no finesse whatsoever. Just malt, booze and phenol. Texture shows softness and slickness from the malt with low-to-moderate carbonation, somewhat engaging.

Aroma is raisin and a grassy/herby- mix. Appearance of redish brown in color with a creamy, white head . Taste is a medium cherry and strawberry sweetnes. Oily texture and the finish is pretty dry fidelis83 (2567) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 20, 2017
Pours a clear dark amber to brown with a two finger, creamy tan head. Aroma is dark and plummy stone fruits, dark sugar, licorice, chocolate, light nutty notes, a hint of toffee, light earthy and bready yeastiness. Flavor is chocolate, licorice and sweet stone fruits up front, then some chewy toffee, caramel and nutty notes, a hint of grilled and tart peaches, some hay, earthy, wet leaf funk and light spicy, chocolate and earth to the slightly acidic finish. Medium to heavy body, kinda chewy feel medium, somewhat blanketing blanketing carbonation with a surprisingly mild (I’ll call it medium) intensity for the style and a pleasant, slight acidity to the finish. Really tasty, maybe not top marks for complexity in the style, despite the disparate sounding base beers, but it wins some points for being really tasty and approachable and fairly easygoing, despite the description. Definitely a beer that I’d call greater than the sum of its parts... I can’t really give it any more points in any one focused category, but it deserves a couple extra ticks in "overall", I could definitely drink this often.

Draft. Dark brown pour. This is sweet and raisiny, not a huge amount of brett but rather vanilla and clove. Ok for a booze bomb. IPAMeister7 (89) - - AUG 6, 2017

Draft at the brewery. Pours bronze with thin, off-white head. Spicy aroma. Stone fruit and raisins with some spiciness. AirForceHops (8285) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 29, 2017
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear mahogany color, no head. Aroma is dark fruits, Belgian yeast, and mild Brettanomyces. Flavor is sweet dark fruits, booze, and some Belgian yeast notes. Brettanomyces is just a mild hint toward the finish. Very good. Nicely different.
