While waiting to get my allotment, I purchased one for onsite consumption in a snifter.

A - dark (yep)

S - Roast and dark fruits. Bourbon and funk. Chocolate and funk. Lots going on here.

T - Holy smokes this is complex. You get roast from the stout and a nice complimentary tartness. Finishes with chocolate and the brett and barrel character opens up as you go on. Jam-like. Awesome. Where is the 15% by the way?

M - Crazy drinkable for 15%. Dry for sure. Goes does dangerously easy. Has a some surprising carbonation for being so big.

O - I love this for its complexity and can't wait to see how the brett character changes overtime. Definitely share with a friend. At 15% it is way more drinkable than it should be. Enjoy this one slowly.

A: murky dark

S: from the tap at release, smell a faint roasty; poured from bottle last night, this was FUNKY!

T: from the tap at release, the stout character is prominent, with a fruity note; poured from bottle last night, this is a dark wild ale, with a stout character, and some kind of spice. Very peculiar

M: like it from the bottle as far as mouthfeel. The wild acidic tingle with that high ABV combined

O: Definitely feel like we made the right choice and head straight up to Asheville instead of Charlotte.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Small khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Strong yogurt. Vanilla. Chocolate. Very odd aroma.

Taste - Lightly tart. Like a plain yogurt. Dark chocolate and coffee. Bourbon comes through. Bright finish. Some vanilla.

Mouthfeel - Doesn't taste anywhere near 15%, whatever that means. Medium heavy body.

Overall - A little sluggish and very odd. We all decided the flavor is like a fresh sheep's milk cheese.
