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. deyholla (12933) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2017

Keg @ Surly. Deep amber pour with a small head. Bretty nose. Barnyard funk complements some caramel and plum. Burnt brown sugar. Some earthy, leathery character, too. Somewhat discordant mix of flavors. Earthy, dry Brett with sweet caramelized dark fruits. Strong carb. Full body. AirForceHops (8416) - 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. ClarkVV (7294) - 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.
Pours barely translucent caramel with a thin beige head. Aroma features tart pomme fruit and a hint of fresh malt. Flavor offers toasted malt, caramel, cinnamon and tart pomme tones. Mouthfeel delivers good body and fair fizz. Don’t be surly, enjoy.
