From 08/26/10 notes. Had at a local DC tasting.
Commercial Description: "A second fermentation in American Oak using Brettanomyces, a wild yeast, gives this beer a distinct complex and earthy character. ESG has been developed by our brewers for special occasions and will only be available through our tasting room for the time being (11% abv)."
a - Pours a dark brown color with 1 inch of tan head and no carbonation evident.
s - Smells of brett, sour dark fruits, raisins, hint of oak, and caramel malts.
t - Tastes of sour fruit, some brett/funk, plus roasted malts, chocolate, vinegar, raisins, and figs.
m - Medium body and no carbonation.
d - I thought the smell and taste were kind of all over the place, but it worked very well. I enjoyed the classic porter signs with some brett added to it. Would love to try again sometime.
