What the brewers say

“God's Eye is a wild porter crafted with Pilsner, Blue Ballad, and Chocolate Wheat malts, flaked oats, flaked rye, and Midnight Wheat, then aged on blackberries for undertones of chocolate-covered berries and jammy red wine. God's Eye is fermented and aged in oak barrels for several months with our wild yeast culture and then bottle conditioned.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “The rich roasted and toasted quality blends well with mild Brett/Pedio funkiness, medium lactic sourness, and subtle berry esters from the fruit. Chocolate and roasted malts bring a fun complexity.”

Flavor: “The rich roasted quality blends well with the blackberry and Brett funk of straw/hay/musty cellar. The berries play a complementary role and add tartness. Finishes dry.”

Overall: “A dark ale with some funk flavored by dark berries. There’s an interesting interplay of Brett funk and very dark roasted malt. Complex and endlessly interesting. I would enjoy a small tulip of this beer.”
