Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Mild pop off the cork.

Is this a chocolate milk shake or what? Deep chestnut brown, and thick looking milkshake chocolate body, with some slight tan bubbles rising on the sides. Head is creamy if a bit forced on the pour, and two fingers chocolate light tan brown in color. Cocoa like top, with a one finger puck. This looks like something poured at a diner.

The bouquet is really interesting but a bit hidden and muted. Mild senses of balsamic vinegar. A touch of pepper. Wine like Rodenbach cherries a bit, and a faint hint of milk chocolate. A bit odd but quite unique.

Palate is very interesting and unique. First sip and mid palate fills with a sour fruit angle that comes off more towards dark berried black or mountain, with a mild acid and tarness. Caramel and chocolate malts bring a little bit of sweetness and then there is a big mix of roast bitterness and carbon char. The swallow brings the hops, there's some pine and earth mixed in there that really lingers, matching some brett like dryness to go with it. Mouthfeel is solid, nothing spectacular, but with a creamed simple malt backbone, and nothing weak. THe balance between sour, hop, and malt sweetness is really well integrated, but slightly challenging.

THis easily one of the most complex beers I've ever had to date. Flavors are all over the place but strangely not out of balance, but this is going to be a very jarring beer for others I would imagine.
