4.09/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Quite a challenge to remove both cage and cork - had to use "the rabbit" to get it out; and for what, as there is no carbonation in this beer whatsoever; anyway, this pours a headless fudge brown with ruby highlights

Smell: Chocolate and funky dark fruit; balsamic vinegar with oak and Bourbon undertones

Taste: The dark fruit presents itself first, with the acetic tartness building; after the swallow, the chocolate, funk, oak and Bourbon emerge; the finish is tart and puckery

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with no carbonation

Overall: Hard to believe this is 100% Brett as the acetic character is much stronger than the funk; anyway, quite an interesting beer that takes a while to capture all of its subtleties

Thanks, JMBSH, for the opportunity
