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.

Bottled on 10/31/14

This beer pours with lots of head that stays around forever. The beer itself is black and mostly totally opaque but with some reddish around the edges.

The nose here is a bit tart and funky up front with a touch of light coffee undernearth.

The beer itself is a bit of coffee, very light, and some roasted malts. Nothing too overpowering. This then fades a bit and there is a hint of sweetness (a touch of chocolate?) and also just a hint of some brett on the aftertaste. The brett here seems to be really only in the nose, pretty much a somewhat bland, fairly light tasting, stout otherwise. Probably the worst of the Allagash "limited releases" that I have tried so far.
