Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Firestone Walker snifter.
A: Pours a dark rich brown to mahogany in color, translucent. Forms a one-finger eggshell head with visible carbonation on the low side.
S: Funky, barnyard Brett, some cognac, toasted malts, and oaky tannins.
T: Funky tartness, oak dryness, cognac that doesn't dominate, and roasted malts. Near the finish is an almost fruity (cherry?) sweetness (possibly from cognac ethanol). The flavors remind me a bit of a cherry cola in overall impression. Some lemony citric tartness integrated as well, which increases as the beer warms. Sweet and tartness linger into the hang, which finishes dry overall.
M: Medium body, moderately low carbonation sensation, and has low alcohol burn.
O: This was a different beer, but really tasty. Not overly funky or tart, but balanced in its own way. The cognac flavors were unmistakeable, but well-integrated into the beer. Nicely done, and highly recommended. I am curious as to what the Brett will do over some years in the cellar.

750ml bottle, split
This is a very lovely beer - lots of grape jam, raspberry, oak, tart summer berries. Very vinous in nature - wine, berry, and wood all in harmony. I really enjoyed this and if I see more, i'm buying it. Great collaboration effort
