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 draught in a small tulip, muddy brown, like a dark spiced rum. Modest khaki head leave slight laceing.

Aromas deliver as promised with cherry and berries. Funk comes out as well, but is secondary.

Nice sweet/tart flavors follow the aroma. Long sour finish.

Alcohol is less prominent than 7.3 suggested and carbonation is on par for the style.

Very enjoyable with Belgain friets, and worth finding again.

Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers The Festival 2014 held at Crafted in San Pedro, CA.

Date bottled: 10/16/13.

Pours a murky super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, funk, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, earth, and funk flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of funk bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid but mild funk presence all around.

Serving type: bottle.

I was reading the sour bible while having a craving for a spectacular brett based beer while reading. I decided to peek into the cellar and noticed this brew was a year old today(Now yesterday). Last time I had this beer was early winter of last year and rated this beer poorly for the sharpness of the brett at the time. This baby needed some time to really show off what it was capable of.

A: While undoing the cage I gave a slight twist and there was some serious pressure inside this 275 ml bottle. This ebony goddess pours midnight black following the name with a huge three finger head that takes a minute to dissipate leaving a off white millimeter head that retains for over thirty minutes.

S: Spectacular earthy nose with a slight spice note.

T: Follows the nose with a nice earthy brett character that takes over the beer. If I was not looking I would not know it was pitch black. The only sign is a slight sweetness towards the end.

F: Medium body that is fully carbonated

Overall: This was a complete WOW beer considering what it was a little under a year ago. I wish I grabbed a few more bottles. Damn what a year in a bottle can do with brett.
