Pours dark brown and quite cloudy, murky. There's a small-medium beige head. It's a hot day, so that might have had an impact, but the head faded pretty quickly to nothing. Now, it's just a glass of liquid, the color of mud. The aroma is rather nice. You can almost ignore the roasted barley aspect. Citrus and floral hops and a whole bunch of fruity brett stuff going on. The brett and hops are kicking up peaches, grapes, pineapples, tangerines, roses, lavender, mint - these lists always sound made up, but it's just what comes to mind as I sit here navel-gazingly writing down what comes to mind. Anywho, there's also darker malt fruitiness, which is nice enough but already seems unnecessary. Unfortunately, that fruity dark malt note has an even bigger impact on the taste. It starts off with light fruit flavors from the hops and brett, but then deeper malt flavors - still quite fruity but it's the fruitiness of brett working on roasted malt - start to kick in. It sorta picks up a metallic flavor, though I think that's just the dark malt being odd. Light bitterness. Mouthfeel is heavier than I'd like. The beer just never dries out enough to get all that light. It just tastes like a really nice brett IPA spoiled by some dark malt. ABA, Black IPA, etc. isn't my favorite style, but I've found a few that I've liked. The roasted malt flavor just doesn't work for me with this one, though.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Mild pop off the cork.

Is this a chocolate milk shake or what? Deep chestnut brown, and thick looking milkshake chocolate body, with some slight tan bubbles rising on the sides. Head is creamy if a bit forced on the pour, and two fingers chocolate light tan brown in color. Cocoa like top, with a one finger puck. This looks like something poured at a diner.

The bouquet is really interesting but a bit hidden and muted. Mild senses of balsamic vinegar. A touch of pepper. Wine like Rodenbach cherries a bit, and a faint hint of milk chocolate. A bit odd but quite unique.

Palate is very interesting and unique. First sip and mid palate fills with a sour fruit angle that comes off more towards dark berried black or mountain, with a mild acid and tarness. Caramel and chocolate malts bring a little bit of sweetness and then there is a big mix of roast bitterness and carbon char. The swallow brings the hops, there's some pine and earth mixed in there that really lingers, matching some brett like dryness to go with it. Mouthfeel is solid, nothing spectacular, but with a creamed simple malt backbone, and nothing weak. THe balance between sour, hop, and malt sweetness is really well integrated, but slightly challenging.

THis easily one of the most complex beers I've ever had to date. Flavors are all over the place but strangely not out of balance, but this is going to be a very jarring beer for others I would imagine.
