Beer added by: Jason on 01-09-2013

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.

3.77/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: dark Brown almost black, with large white head. Head dissipates fairly quickly.

Aroma: Some fruit, cherry, pepper, chocolate, wood and light smoky nose, some brett

Flavor: light dark fruit and chocolate, some pepper/spices (rye?), oak, roasted malt flavor on the side of smoked, finishes dry with some tartness. Very light Brett. Some bitterness, but very low.

Mouthfeel: medium body, high carbonation

Overall: Drinkable, Very heavy on roasted malts and rye which gives an impression it was barrel aged. Very light sour beer, could have been more. Worth a taste, but probably won't have again.

A nice-looking beer. In a teku glass the beer was a dark brown, nearly black, color. The tan head was a bit sticky and lasted to the end of the glass.

Sweet fruit and sour cherry aroma. Some roasted malt.

Nice taste. Berries, sour cherries. A little bit of chocolate and a little bit of funk.

It's alternately sweet and sour. A beer to savor.

4.36/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: brown in color, 1/4 inch head, clear, moderate carbonation

Smell: chocolate, dark fruits, and sour mix

Taste: dark and sweet milk chocolate, lots of balck cherries, light blueberry, and sour mix

Mouthfeel: sour with a slightly sweet start and a dry semi-bitter finish, moderate carbonation, light bodied

Drinkability: Really enjoyed the sour cherry and dark chocolate combination. Glad I was able to find this on draft. I would certainly pick this up again. One of my new favorite beers from a brewery that I like.
