Picked up a bottle of this for $7.99 marked down from 12.99. Into a tulip.
A - Very deep dark brown with a 1/2 inch of mocha head that pulls back to just a layer of head.
S - Smells of pure funk, tons of brett with sour apple and vinegar goodness. Has some oaky barrel character and some fruity notes but mostly sour notes.
T - Well it's not overly sweet like some people note but not overly sour or overwhelming. I actually enjoy it mostly funky sour like some apple vinegar tones with some sour cherry twang, and plums with some oak finish.
M - For such a high ABV it drinks medium bodied with a constant sour twang.
Overall I was impressed with this one not so much to buy again but it was a good one off. Not too sour or sweet or even dry it drank rather good.

This pour was very unusual in the coloration, which appeared orange brown and translucent during the poring, but in the glass, it looked very deep red, bordering on black. The head was about two fingers thick at first, and then dissipated down to under one finger thick. The smell of the beer was very strong, and was wafting away from the glass without the need to bring it to the nose. There was strong oak barrel smell, along with the brett, which probably lurked in the nooks and crannies of the same. The taste was keeping up with the funky theme, with sour highly aged taste reminiscent of a Flanders Red. This is an intentional effect, as the aging process involved in this beer and the Belgian style is very similar. When other beers say funky, they usually add a bit of Brett character and call it a day. This one goes for the full "funk you" treatment. I love the resulting creation. The ABV is listed at 9.5%, but it is not evident at all, so make sure you be careful when sampling this. Beautiful beer.
