Notes / Commercial Description:
Midnight Brett is chocolate brown in color, brewed with 2-Row, Midnight wheat, raw wheat and rye malt. It was hopped with a blend of Perle, Glacier and Simcoe hops. The beer was fermented with our house strain of Brettanomyces in stainless tanks. The finished beer has the aroma and flavor of fresh berries, sour cherries and a slight roasted character. The finish is pleasantly tart and fruity making this beer very drinkable.

375mL corked and caged bottle poured into a snifter. 10-16-2013 date.

(A)- Pours a very dark brown; almost pitch black color. Minimal tan froth.

(S)- Smells a bit like jerky. Slight smoke meets some dry, slightly funky Brett. Subtle raisins and dark fruits.

(T)- Slightly funky, but with that meaty jerky character from the smell. Brett is present but subtle. Finishes strongly of raisins.

(M)- A good carbonation level. Its just a bit odd with the jerky character to this; kind of throws it off for me.

(O)- This is a bit of a weird one for me, was not expecting this dried meat aroma and smell to the beer overall. Might benefit from time, but its a strange beer considering Allagash made this.

A nice-looking beer. In a teku glass the beer was a dark brown, nearly black, color. The tan head was a bit sticky and lasted to the end of the glass.

Sweet fruit and sour cherry aroma. Some roasted malt.

Nice taste. Berries, sour cherries. A little bit of chocolate and a little bit of funk.

It's alternately sweet and sour. A beer to savor.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: brown in color, 1/4 inch head, clear, moderate carbonation

Smell: chocolate, dark fruits, and sour mix

Taste: dark and sweet milk chocolate, lots of balck cherries, light blueberry, and sour mix

Mouthfeel: sour with a slightly sweet start and a dry semi-bitter finish, moderate carbonation, light bodied

Drinkability: Really enjoyed the sour cherry and dark chocolate combination. Glad I was able to find this on draft. I would certainly pick this up again. One of my new favorite beers from a brewery that I like.
