(Served in a teku)
A- This beer pours a get black body with a deep tan head that is supported by lots of microbubble strands. The beer is a slow motion gusher and the yeasty trub streaks up the sides of the glass.

S- The full galaxy hop aroma comes through during the pour and is followed by a mellow but bright pungent hop aroma that reminds me of opening a fresh bag of hop pellets.

T- The green bright hops flavor is woody with some full brett flavor of white cheese rind and some great earthy saison yeast ester flavors to follow. There is a tart hint in the finish that grows a bit as it opens.

M- The light mouthfeel has a full crisp fizz with no alcohol heat.

O- The full woody bright green hops are pungent and delicious with a big brett character that can stand up to them. The taste really blends as the two characters grows together. Very sessionable.

Bought in San Antonio. Brought home in my luggage. No bottle on date. Poured into a chalice.

A super unique brew in my book. One of a kind! Just the aroma is almost enough for me. Almost a black IPA but with the funk. 5.0

A – Pours a black/reddish tinged opaque with a two-finger mousey tan head. Almost classic Belgian lacing. 5.0

S – Slightly sweet, spice, funk, some pear, yeast (fruity, spicy). 5.0

T – Funk & spice. Some bitterness in the finish. 4.75

MF – A bit velvety/creamy, medium bodied, dry lasting finish, a bit acred (-), some fizz. 4.25

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Not really easy to categorize this one. It is basically a funky congregation of stuff going on.
It looks nice and dark with a large foamy tan/brown head and all kinds of different bubble sizes.
It smells a little citrusy, a little roasty, a little funky and a little sweetness.
Some roast and happiness in the taste upfront and the funk blends in well. Slowly the hop flavor and bitterness subside and the funky sharpness can standout before finishing with a bit if the bitterness again.
Good, lively mouthfeel.
Again, just a very interesting beer that doesn't go too far in one direction, but also doesn't become muddled. I call it a winner.
