I haven’t done a beer run in forever. I’ve really been trying to drink down the 5 beers that are still in my beer fridge that I haven’t reviewed. But, since there was football on, I had to grab some beer for my sister. Since I had an extra hand, I saw that this gem had just come in and I knew it was coming home with me. Despite the price point ($19.99 for the bomber), I’ve never seen a bad review on it, plus I needed a dose of brett. Let’s see how it fared.
Style: American Wild Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We brewed a stout (no, not Black Tuesday, this one is only 5% abv if you can believe it), but we then decided to throw it into oak barrels…and added our special blend of souring bacterias and yeasts. The result is a perfectly tart yet awesomely dark and roasty sour stout. Not a style you see too often – and in our opinion, not a style you see often enough.”
Random: I’m having a craving for a good burger. I haven’t had one in forever.
This brew poured with a three finger tan head that dissipated very slowly. It left decent lacing behind on the glass. The body was an inky almost black color with no visible carbonation due to the color. The nose had big notes of brett with warm oak and some cocoa. The first sip was really tart with huge notes of brett. As it opened, some roastiness came through at the end of the sip with coffee and cocoa. The flavor profile was really nice and well-done. The body was on the thinner side with heavy carbonation. The finish was long with brett. This beer was just divine really and I easily finished the bomber. If you see it, definitely grab one. It’s a really shining star of The Bruery lineup.
