I'm not sure where to put this in a style. Based on the ABV it's certainly not an american/london porter, and it didn't taste like cutthroat aged with Brett. This seems to me to be a baltic porter aged with brett, to produce a pretty gimmicky, yet very palatable beer.

L: Dar, dark brown, bordering on black. Good amount of fluffy cream-colored head.

S: Soured fruits, followed by lesser porter smells. The brett here is really overpowering ... very little porter comes through at all, and when it does it's late to the party.

T: Brett and sour right up front, fading into a creamy sweet porter underbelly. Taste balances far better than the smell.

F: Perfectly thick.

D: Damn good, if a touch on the gimmicky fad-wagon. I too, seem to be a sucker for brett.
