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.

On tap at taproom in patchogue

Pours just like the name...midnight black with a tiny ring of bubbles. Smells like tart grapes with a little bit of plums. Taste is not as sour as the nose let's on, more funky with a slight sour grape twing. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side with soft carbonation. Overall this beer blew me away, I hope more of this makes it into my market.

A - pours dark brown but crystal clear with a great tan head, great lacing, head lasts

S - tart cherry, funky but a bit muddled with the dark malts

T - delicious - roasty, slight coffee flavor blended with Brett barnyard and dryness. Some rich malt / fig flavor which disappears quickly due to carbonation level. Taste is less sour than aroma would suggest.

M - great carbonation, very dry

O - lots of intangibles in this special beer. Very well down, great Brett beer. Glad I have 5 more!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: The dark brown liquid arrives showing off plum highlights; a perky head leaves occasional splashes of lace behind

Smell: A range of sweet and tart jam fruits (grape, black raspberry and cherry) dominate the aroma with some leathery Brett tones underneath

Taste: The jam fruit flavors detected in the aroma jut forward bringing subtle sweet and tart elements; by mid-palate, the leathery Brett arrives, adding some additional sour tones; the finish shows off the oaky vinous character but every element of the beer is held in check

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Tremendous subtlety in every direction makes this beer stand out; the barrel aging here was handled with great deftness

Caught this on tap at Nocturnem earlier today. They had some left over from the Allagash Tap Takeover last night and so I gladly obliged myself to a glass.

A - Black in color with a minimal tan head.
A - Funk, Dark fruits, some slight oakiness and roast
T - Wow. This was everything I expected it to be and more. The funky, bretty notes are definitely there and provide a pedestal for the well-incorporated dark fruit aspect in the flavor. Raspberry and black cherry nuances arrive in what I can only assume are those derived from the wine barrels they used. Some oak character and dark malt also reside in the flavor profile as well.
M - A very smooth and delicate brew with a nice balance in soft carbonation and even mouthfeel. The set-up allows the above mentioned flavors to wash right over the palate effortlessly. This drinks somewhat light and hides the alcohol well.
O - Would buy the shit out of this if Allagash put this into bottle production. Such a great funky stout and the flavors here are interwoven so well. Enjoyed this immensely and highly recommend it.

Thanks to joefuzz for the tip on this one. Decided to head over to the tap room for lunch to see what the hub bub was all about. Showed in a snifter. Maroon purple with minimal head. Smell is grape and dark fruit. Nice sweetness. Really smooth, easy drinker. Not really all that sour, but good tartness on the finish. Word is this might go to bottles, paint me excited. Great sour for those who don't love overly sour beer. Will be interesting to see what time does to it if it does get bottled.

look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Served in a balloon glass. Deep brown color with a tan head that moves off quickly and shows red highlights throughout the beer. Nothing special really.

The aroma is very interesting, hinting at berries and sour funk in the profile. I get notes of vinegar, blackberries, and blueberries in this beer. The aroma is also quite potent. Really good.

Sour up front, but not aggressively sour. Blueberries, blackberries, and boysenberries are all very prominent and mix with the dark malt characters. The dark malts roasted flavors are only there in the background and even then not much. Really tasty beer. Not much alcohol present. The sour is not overwhelming, the beer is quite fruity, and it turns out to be a great tasting beer.

Full body and decent carbonation. Fluffy, dry, acetic finish.

I typically don't like dark sour ales but this has really made me think otherwise. Quite a good beer. It's drinkable yet complex. It reminds me of Dannon Mixed Berry yogurt. That is how much of a fruit profile this beer has. This one surprised me. Good one.

Bottle shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff!

The beer is dark brown with an everlasting beige head that leaves copious lacing behind. The aroma brings smoke, malt, molasses, leather, dark fruit, funk, oak. Well balanced and flavorful. Dark saison character. Complex and intriguing. A fun beer. This was really solid. I'd definitely have this again.

Have had this several times but review from 03/07/14 notes. 12 oz. pour in tulip at One Mile House in NYC.

a - Pours a dark brown color with one inch of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of sour cherries and tart dark fruits, brett, citrus, fruity pebbles cereal, roasted malts, chocolate, oak, oranges. Nice nose, very good mix of some dark malts with brett and sour fruits.

t - Tastes of lightly sour dark fruits, cherries, brett, oranges, citrus, roasted malts, chocolate, light tang. Taste is a slight step up from the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation

o - Overall I like this one quite a bit though not as much as Golden Brett. Light fruity pebbles in the nose especially, but a good mix of brett sour fruits and roasted notes. Well worth checking out.

Poured on tap into a tulip glass.

Super dark red body, hinting towards black. Foamy cap of mocha tan white, with a collar to match. Noticeable small carbonation.

Nose smells sweet fruit dominant. Welch's grape juice, mild little funk, good balance of sweetnees and funky character.

Sharp mild fruit sweetnees, good brett and funk mid palate almost with a nice woody roast character. Smooth wet feel, with moderate carbonation. Juicy quality slightly a bit, with grape and hints of dark red fruit, raspberries, cherry and so forth, mild pepper.

Real neat fun beer, like this sweet light fruit and brett mix.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The beer pours a fairly creamy and vigorous light tan head that does not dissipate quickly and appears to last quite a while. The beer itself is a dark black with hints of dark, ruby red that adds a nice shade to the black. The smell is very good and certainly worth writing about. The beer has a strong funk (tart) smell from the Brett in addition to hops, a bit of the roast, all of which to form a cherry smell when it warms up. Some of the raw wheat gets through and combines well with the Brett but easily gets lost if you are not looking for the wheat. The roasted character also comes out a bit to make the combined smell similar to berry. The hops do not seem to be very present if at all. The taste is a bit different from the smell but still similar in some respects. The funk is still the strongest flavor but is less sharp than it is in the smell. Rather, the funk (tartness) seems to mix with the other flavors and comes out a similar flavor to cherries. The light roast also makes an appearance and the hops are make an appearance in the aftertaste. The beer feels bubbly and smooth but not crisp, which makes it an easy but unique drink. Overall, a very good beer and one that I will get again if I can swallow the price tag.

Poured from a 11.7 oz. formerly corked and caged bottle into a Allagash branded cervoise glass

Pours a dark cola brown topped by an extremely fluffy three finger cream colored head. Exceptional retention with tons of lacing. Whiffs of dark cherries, accents of dark chocolate, balsamic vinegar, and mixed berries on the nose. Opens with dark chocolate and caramel joined by dark cherries, blueberries, and other dark fruit notes. Finishes fairly dry with tart cherries, a bit of balsamic vinegar, light oak and mild rye spice. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation silky smooth and creamy. Really wonderful, unique brew. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.

A: dark brown-black, essentially opaque body; two fingers of tan foam head left some lacing down the glass

S: roasted berry and dark earth, hints of brett funk slipping through

T: subdued currents of dark, tart black cherry, and smooth roasty but toasty grains - this beer drinks like a mellow IPA - the dark malts weave some voodoo magic on the palate - super-smooth integration of diverse malts and hops, tweaked with a subtle tart berry flavor; modest funky notes of brett's work in the beer round out the taste and tie all the elements together

M: full yet light-medium body, smooth and slippery, super easy to drink, soft and soothing

O: this was a fantastic drink, full of flavors and feels that will satisfy most BAs - part wild ale, dark ale, and pale ale, with a great malt bill including rye, wheat, and barley, and an assembly of complementary hops. I don't know what wild ale fans expect, but I thought this a beer particularly worthy of even non-wild ale fans' attention, as it was (IMO) a style-transcendent beer. Probably be too limited to get out there to everyone, so don't pass up on a bottle if you see it.

4.19/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Super carbonated pour: three finger creamy tan and bubbly head. Brew is extremely dark, solid black but thin-appearing. Lacing is good. A lot of yeast stays behind in the bottle.

You can smell tartness and funkiness as soon as you pop the cork, and it only intensifies as you pour. The Brett comes across as a hay or barn funk lemon sharpness. Darker fruit is present behind, with soft cherries, red grapes, and prunes. Sweet and tart. Not subtle, but complex and balanced.

Flavor is delicate in all respects, and follows the nose in different degrees. Rye and wheat also make their presence known, mostly on the back end. Cherries and prunes are balanced against light funk with an impression of mild aged cheddar. A bit of wood comes through. Beer has some bitterness, but if the hops are represented in the flavor profile, it's only in a dry, grassy sense.

Medium to medium-light body, with a nice lingering effect, and a cleansing dryness on the back end. Almost no sting, but it doesn't come across the slightest bit flat.

This is an impressively complex and tasty wild ale. If anything, I expected more tartness, especially from the aroma. This is really a wonderful beer, and I wish there were more of it to go around.

@ Tyler's (Raleigh)

Very dark brown with a soft-looking, beige head. Smells different than I expected...Brett, tart, juicy berries, grapes, and leather. No roasted malt character to speak of. Flavors are similar with Brett, more dark fruits like blackberries, grapes, and plums, and some very light phenolics in the back. Fluffy, tart, medium body. Drinks lighter than its strength. Another tasty beverage from Allagash.

Poured from a 375 mL bottle into a BA goblet. Moderate hand. Date bottled: Oct. 16, 2013.

A: Very dark red-brown. Essentially black viewed straight-on. 1/2 finger of off-white head. Ok retention. Light lacing.

S: Equal parts earthy funk and lactic/citric acid sourness. Darker notes of roasted malt. Trace cacao. Dark fruit, cherry. Minimal acetic acid. Licorice.

T: Roasted malt intermingled with musty brett and a relatively light tartness. Dry finish. No significant alcohol presence. Lightly metallic in the aftertaste, but overpowered by a tasty combination of dark fruit, smoky malt and lingering tang.

M: High carbonation with moderate-light body. Bit prickly early on, but smooths out nicely as it goes.

O: Very nice, well-integrated brett elements coupled with roasted malt makes for an interesting and rather delicious brew. Glad I picked up a second one to get a bit of age on!

Prost!

375 ml bottle poured into a Jolly Pumpkin Goblet
Bottle date: Oct 16, 2013.

A: Light tan head made from medium to small bubbles that are quickly dissipating to a thin rim of lacing. Color is black but thin looking, nothing like a stout but still dark as hell. A beautiful dark cherry red glows through when put against a light source.

S: Aroma hits you in the face with a huge fist full of tropical Brett. Slight funk is kinda there but smell is mostly ashy roast like a wannabe dark saison. I do enjoy dark saisons but they all have a slight ashy roastiness to them and this has that as well. The Brett is getting more prevalent as it warms and while keeping a distance from the glass. Quite funky almost old gym sock like aroma but kinda enticing in a weird beer geek way.

T: Dry and right away you get a distinct ashy roast that is nor chocolaty or coffee like in its roastiness. Its that typical roast you get in dark saisons. Very much like the nose but not as funky as the nose leads you to think. I've had this on tap and was more funky than this bottle. Maybe as it warms even more it will gain some funk. Nice and bitter finish though and also has some fruitiness in the aftertaste that is most likely the tropical Brett notes that are in the nose. Good brew.

M: High carbonation makes up for the otherwise thin mouthfeel. Slight roast and bitterness lingers for a while but fades into an almost dark fruit but mostly tropical Brett. Nice funk is beginning to develop but is not too obvious. Aging will be great on this bottle, wish I had picked up a few but was the last one left.

O: A nice example of a brett beer and perhaps one of the only examples of a dark brett beer. Its refreshing since its not a dense beer like a stout. The color is just that, color. It happens to be dark but roast is negligent minus a slight ashy character but is typical for non roasty dark beers. Worth a try.

On-tap at Alewife, Long Island City, NY

A: The beer is nearly black in color—dark red is visible near the bottom of the glass when it is held up to a light. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface, a collar around the edge and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dark, sour cherries are present in the nose.
T: The taste is a little sour and has flavors of black cherries but there are also strong notes of dark malts. The sour cherry flavors linger through the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a lot to moderate amount of carbonation. Faint bits of tartness are noticeable.
O: You wouldn't expect this to be a wild ale from its appearance, but it has a nice amount of sourness that's not overpowering and interesting contrasting flavors of dark malts.

Bottled Oct. 16, 2013

A: Pours a very dark brown with 2+ fingers of head that slowly fades down to a decent cap that leaves behind some good lacing

S: Quite a bit of restrained funk right off the bat, with some notes of sour cherry, barnyard, berries, and very lightly roasted malts

T: Roasted malts start things off, along with a light Brett barnyard funk. Very lightly acidic and sour, which is quite the turn from the nose. Light fruitiness comes in mid-palate, bringing along the berries and stone fruit as well. Finishes with lingering fruitiness and a hint of acetic acid

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and dry

O: A very nice and interesting AWA. While the nose suggests a bit more funk and sour notes, the taste is very subdued in those areas. Nice to sip on and let the complexities of the Brett come out as it warms. The roast also makes it quite interesting. Certainly worth trying

Allagash tulip

A: Pours a dark brown but with reddish hues. Towards the bottom of the glass I'm seeing some more burgundy or reddish colors. Tight bubbled head. It's a lighter head. Sticking around. Not leaving a ton of lacing.

S: Very interesting. Light cocoa. Almost like powder. Some light sour funk coming through. Not overwhelming barnyard. Dry tannic oak.

T: First thing you get is form of that Brett funk. Then that light cocoa powder. The oak dryness. Light spice from the yeast. Prickly carbonation. Dryness on the close. Lingering flavors.

It has been some time since I have reviewed a beer, a long time. So here goes. This beer was served at room temperature.

A - the initial pour produces a large head, very dense and creamy looking. The head dips down a creates a bit of a caldera with lacing left behind. The sheeting is almost guiness like. The color is very deep dark brown and opaque. Not black, you can see translucent brown where light hits it.

S - very fruit forward. Berry aromas, more on the fruity side of brettanomyces aromas, slightly phenolic and medicinal at times. Some hay and very light barnyard funk do make an apperance. Unlike other reviewers I think the aroma is less laudable then the taste.

T - interesting. A little messy truthfully I think, but a few things stand out as good. Cocoa and chocolate marry with some spicy rye flavors and a hint of coffee. The rye malt also marrys very well with the brettanomyces. Rye and brett play well together. There is a clear brett flavor that equates to cherry and or berry that lingers and creates a long after taste.

M - the wheat gives this beer nice fluffy-ness and mouthfeel. Unlike a lot of brett beers it is not thin or watery. The bottle conditioning is soft and appropriate. There is however a lingering brett and chocolate like aftertaste that I find somewhat off putting, kinda.

O - this beer has some good things going for it, but the one thing that really detracts from this beer I believe is how damn successful Allagash is at creating American Wild Ale. Stacked up against there other offerings this one falls a little short. HOWEVER, I still think this beer exhibits something that other breweries have yet to master...nuance and balance. Allagash have mastered nuance and balance in there wild ales and while this is not there best effort it is better than many wild ales I've had because of the balance and nuance. I think this beer is rated unfairly low because there is a preconceived notion of what an american wild ale should taste like...or maybe I'm just an allagash fan boy.

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.

Bottled 10/16/2013.

A: Pours a very dark brown with some red highlights. Tall, fizzy, effervescent light brown head. Great head retention and big fluffy chunks of lacing.

S: Sour fruits mainly. Berries, cherries? A bit wheaty. Tart cherries.

T: Not as sour as the aroma. Lots of tart dark berries. Raspberries, blackberries in particular. Cherries for sure. Get some mild chocolate in there to help sweeten it and balance the sourness - especially towards the finish. A bit earthy too, again towards the finish and the aftertaste. Wheaty aftertaste with some oak (is this barrel aged? I don't think so, I must be mistaking oak for something else).

M: Medium bodied, smooth, lightly tart.

O: Interesting sour. Sour berries and some roasted malt. It's borderline like a light sour stout. But more grainy than you'd expect from a sour stout. Hard to define, doesn't really conform to any standard or have any comparisons that I can make easily.

Pours brown within white head and nice lace left behind. The nose starts with strong Brett character which brings funk, lemon, and spice to the nose. This is followed up with some roasted notes and mild chocolate character. The Brett notes seem to work nicely with the roasted malts. The taste features notes of Brett, fruit, funk, and chocolate intertwined. There is a slight tartness at the beginning, but that is overshadowed by roasty malt notes. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation. Overall, I like the combo of dark malt and Brett. I think the two strong flavors do a nice job of balancing each other.
