wonderful smell of hay and barnyard with a touch of smoke underneath, the taste follows the smell somewhat. lots of funk and peat/hay flavors and just a little bit of smoke and tart finish, plenty of carbonation and a drinkable mouthfeel this really is a fantastic bottle of beer

Brewed with peat-smoked malts and aged in Scotch barrels with brett.
Tasted at "Super Kegs" at The Diamond in Greenpoint, Brooklyn

Nose: peaty bretty band aids 

This beer is precisely as bretty as it is peaty. The two flavors never connect, but that's cool because you can drink this beer either way. It's two beers in one!

Like one of those optical illusions that can be seen as either convex or concave, but never both at once.

Not sure I'd say the dimensions are both quite world class, but I couldn't detect anything "off", and I found this incredibly fun to drink, and surprisingly refreshing considering the strength.

I can't go into detail on terminology, but I can say that I'm hunting for this beer wherever I can find it because it's the most unique and delicious beer I've ever tasted. It's loaded with smokey flavor, meat, and yet it ends refreshing. I highly recommend this and I have to say, it's my favorite beer.

A-Pours a brownish orange color. Hazy. Barely any head. Not a ton of lacing either. It pours like it has some body to it.

S-Aroma is really neat. It's very, very pleated. Also some serious funkiness hanging around in there as well. A sweet lining holds the peat and Brett together. The Brett gives off a nice herbal/medicinal/eucalyptus aroma.

T-Definitely some cured meat. Bonfire. A ton of peat. Funky, musty and somewhat sour as well. The Brett is heavy and pretty tasty to boot. I'm really surprised by how well the Brett/peat combo works together. A nice woody oakiness lingers as well.

M-A bit prickly with nice body. Almost tannic. The flavor (especially the smoked, salted meat component) really hangs around for a while.

O/D-Really cool. Wasn't expecting to enjoy this beer. It was a hit with me. Wild, sour, funky, meaty and peaty. Some how it works!

16 oz. served in a tulip at Max's Taphouse in Baltimore. From notes.

A: Pours a dark copper color with a finger's worth of white-colored head. The head on this is beautiful - it's extremely creamy, with fantastic retention to boot. A nice ring of lacing is left behind.

S: Holy. Friggen. Peat. While the peat is very strong - perhaps even too strong for some - the lesser notes of peat (like burnt rubber) are nicely hidden. Letting it open up will give it some additional notes of brett funk and tart lemon. It's hard to explain why, but it just works.

T: It starts off with some lemony tartness, which quickly transitions to an assload of peat flavors. A slight vinous characteristic appears on the back end. This is very very VERY peaty - somehow, everything stays balanced. It's the whole art of adding one extreme flavor to another extreme flavor, and hoping they somehow coexist. Usually that idea falls flat on its face; but in this one, Ducato pulled it off, and the end result is fantastic.

M: This has a tannic feel befitting a sour ale. It remains light on the palate, and could even be called refreshing. Wait, there's no "could be" about it, it IS refreshing. Carbonation is pretty much medium.

O: Not for everyone at all - I was with someone else who ordered this, and he absolutely hated it. Me, I absolutely loved the sour/peat interplay going on here. This is so deliciously unhinged in the best way, and you bet I'll be looking for this one again.
