12oz glass at the PW tap takeover at Beer Revolution. Barrel-aged with Brettanomyces.

This beer appears a muddled dark bronzed amber hue, with one finger of faintly foamy, kind of wispy off-white head, which leaves but a few specks of remote islet lace around the glass as things slowly ebb away.

It smells of musty, sharply metallic yeast, acrid, shaved-woof barrel notes, nutty caramel malt, a mild orchard fruitiness, and a soft leafy, earthy hoppiness. The taste is thankfully more malty up front, with a sort of medicinal dark fruitiness, and some candy-bar caramel/toffee essence, all while the astringently funky esters hover and tsk as you might expect. A bit of whisky-soaked wooden stave graininess flits about around the edges.

The carbonation is lightly rendered, and just a tad frizzy, the body a decent medium weight, and haltingly smooth. It finishes off-dry, the caramel malt and enlivened vanilla barrel-borne notes facing a reduced sour yeast and bacterial infection character.

Once again with this brewer, as with many others, an already outstanding offering is turfed by the barrel treatment process, and to a lesser degree, the Brett - everything is thinned out to a certain measure, adding little to the overall enjoyable nature herein. Nice to see experimentation at hand, but hardly something I'd endeavour to drink again.
