2.62/5  rDev -23.2%

Pours a darker fluffy thick creamy 1.5 finger head that fades semi slowly with nice thick lacing, super dark black beer. 4.25

Nose is infected, second beer from this brewery that's infected... wild Brett, not a great Brett either, a bad Brett, a bit of a black cocoa in the background, some dark caramel, cocoa dust, biscuit, that's about it. 2.5

Taste brings more infection again, Brett funk, bad Brett again, some black malt, cocoa and black malt, a little caramel, black caramel, roasted char. Mostly just infection though, I'm surprised it didn't erupt out of the top. Finish is a bit sticky sweet, little caramel and roasted black malt, and more Brett infection. 2.5

Mouth is med bod, lots of small bubble carb, again infection like and surprised it didn't erupt, little sticky. 3

Overall I'm really sorry I bought any beers from this brewery. I have 2 more, and if they are infected I'll definitely have to contact the brewery and tell them as this is just bad! 2

4.11/5  rDev +20.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours smoothly with a noticeable head. Black body with deep tan head. Smooth with slight carbonation, somewhere between a lager and porter. Strong smell, but somewhat generic. Strong coffee taste, slightly alcoholic but not overly so. Very smooth feel, lingering on tongue. Overall recommended.
