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.

Pours a coppery-amber color with a voluminous white, creamy looking head. Good lace left behind.
Smell is nicely sour, oak and cedar, malt and the scent of a bandage just out of the packaging (that's not a bad thing). A good balance.
Taste is very tart, sour, acidic with a vinegar/bandage mixture following close behind the initial taste with a smokiness bringing up the rear. Balance is heavy to the sour until it becomes an aftertaste. Still sour but the smoke steps up then.
Light bodied, similar to a wheat, with an aggressively tangy effervescence. Not a smooth kind of beer, more of a palate wrecker without being a hoppy bastard. Can't see having it again but glad I did once.

Appearance is a cloudy muddy straw color with a finger of head that lingered for quite some time and then left nice lacing in its wake. The nose was more like a wine than a beer – sour grapes dominate. The flavor follows the nose for the most part. In addition to the wine-like flavor, there is an earthy tone that probably comes from the peat. There are also vague hints of scotch. The finish is mildly tart.

The body on this offering is light and refreshing and it certainly has promise. The problem is that this beer is a little too all over the place. Sometimes less is more and simple is better; this is one of those situations.

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.
