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.

A: pours dark brown to black with a tan head with excellent retention. Amazing looking beer.

S: that's where the amazing ends, except that it smells amazingly average. Dark malts come through a bit, but it mostly smells like smarties.

T: it's bad. This tastes like a campfire and sweet tarts. Sour along with some dark malts come through a bit, giving this beer slight redeeming taste.

M: way too frothy for a wild ale. Feels like a Guiness on nitro.

O: terrible experience overall. I had to use a Sam Adams Rebel IPA as a chaser to finish this. To sum it up: this tastes like a Smarties factory caught on fire while the brewery next door was coolshipping a beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Thanks to angrybabboon for sharing the bottle.

Appearance: Dark dark brown almost black. Head is a loose creamy khaki. Nice streaks of lacing. A bit bubbly on the pour.

Smell: Soft layers of Brett funk. A bit earthy with some damp musty elements. A touch tart with a mild almost lactic element. Sweet roasted malts. Hints of dark chocolate, coffee bean, and cocoa. Caramel malt sweetness. A touch medicinal with a phenolic element. Some bready sweetness.

Taste: Mildly roasted malt. A touch of chocolate malt coupled with cocoa and some coffee bean thrown in. Brett adds some soft funk with a mild tart edge. Some earthy and damp yeast. Super clean for Allagash thanks to the stainless steel. The missing oak is noticeable. A touch of lemon thrown in the back.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light body with a moderate carbonation. A touch crisp with a clean, super clean for Allagash, finish.

Overall: Deep dusk.

Roasted and mildly bretty. Soft and mild for Allagash. The oak would have helped.
