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.

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.
