Thanks to rudzud for acquiring this set and splitting it with me, and thanks to Alec for it in the first place.

Light fizzy head, super dark brown color.

Nose vinous and sour funk, nice Brett funk, sour dark malts, nice Brett in general, no cocoa or roast, cherry flesh but muted and bitter like.

Taste sour funk, soured dark malts, Brett funk, lacto creamy feel, little metallic, mild dark malt in general, cherry flesh, mild bitter roast like malt.. Finish mild flemmy sour like acid feel, sticky, more sour dark malts.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, lighter carb, slick feel, boozy too.

Overall bleh. Not a great blend, the components just don't come together well.

Split with JLindros. As always, thank you Alec for the VIP set.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown hue with a thin white head.

S - Aromas of cherry pit, dunno, malts, off fruits ..Hmmmm...

T - Taste is lots of off flavours, malt sweetness, chocolate, roast, off flavours of funky cherry, off roast, really odd funk, ugh.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, alcohol hidden well bit is heavy syrupy.

O - Overall this beer was a mess..Really bad and jumbled.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Very dark, nearly black. Biggest head of the Box Set so far. Looks genuinely nice.

Smell - Smells like a schwartzbier. Slight bretty aroma with lots of chocolate.

Taste - Brett character is strongest. Chocolate comes through behind it, mostly bitter dark chocolate. Lots of brett acidity coming through. Kinda bland.

Mouthfeel - Buckets of brett. Dry and medium light bodied. No head. Overly carbonated.

Overall - The least exciting so far. Boring beer with some brett.
