Notes/Commercial Description:
Midnight Brett is chocolate brown in color, brewed with 2-Row, Midnight wheat, raw wheat and rye malt. It was hopped with a blend of Perle, Glacier and Simcoe hops. The beer was fermented with our house strain of Brettanomyces in stainless tanks. The finished beer has the aroma and flavor of fresh berries, sour cherries and a slight roasted character. The finish is pleasantly tart and fruity making this beer very drinkable.

I was reading the sour bible while having a craving for a spectacular brett based beer while reading. I decided to peek into the cellar and noticed this brew was a year old today(Now yesterday). Last time I had this beer was early winter of last year and rated this beer poorly for the sharpness of the brett at the time. This baby needed some time to really show off what it was capable of.

A: While undoing the cage I gave a slight twist and there was some serious pressure inside this 275 ml bottle. This ebony goddess pours midnight black following the name with a huge three finger head that takes a minute to dissipate leaving a off white millimeter head that retains for over thirty minutes.

S: Spectacular earthy nose with a slight spice note.

T: Follows the nose with a nice earthy brett character that takes over the beer. If I was not looking I would not know it was pitch black. The only sign is a slight sweetness towards the end.

F: Medium body that is fully carbonated

Overall: This was a complete WOW beer considering what it was a little under a year ago. I wish I grabbed a few more bottles. Damn what a year in a bottle can do with brett.
