This year’s expression is a stronger version of the usual Dark Matter recipe aged on Brettanomyces lambicus in Maker’s Mark Bourbon barrels for 14 months. Each bottle has been waxed and sequentially numbered 0001-1525.

Tasting notes: Leather, coconut and vanilla lactones, subtle hints of aged balsamic vinegar, robust salted caramel backbone. Moderately acetic, cigar-case aroma. Light carbonation to allow slow fermentation in the bottle over many years. The intense oak is expected to mellow with ageing while the Brett will move the beer in the direction of cherry pie flavours over the course of one to two years.
