Draft. Amber beer with a low off-white head. light malt and cognac aroma. Nice cognac flavor with light malt and light oak. Medium bodied. Long lasting cognac lingers with malt and a light yeastiness.

Draft @ Bistro Barrel Aged Festival. Pours a hazy, dull dark copper color; thin head with minimal lacing; a touch messy. Lots of sour mash and cognac notes in the aroma; lots of slightly sour alcohol / cognac barrel character; overripe apples. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: loads of overripe apples, light alcohol; lots of honey, sugar, and dense malty sweetness integrated into soft cognac notes; solid, softly integrated barrel notes. Lengthy finish: toasty, light sugar, nice touches of honey and basic sweet yellow fruits.

caramel pour with no head nor carbonation. Influences are fruit, cognac and a touch of oxidation.

marcus (9231) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
On tap at Bistro Barrel Aged Fest. This apricot colored beer poured with almost no head and a sour oak aroma. The flavor is funky and fruity and a bit sour with a warming alcohol trail.

On tap at the Bistro in Hayward for the Barrel Aged Fest. Very murky golden-orange in color with minimal head. Aroma is dominated by cognac. "The Ladies Man" would like this. Some sweet malt and apple in there too. Flavor is very good if boozy with cognac, pale malt, caramel, and light fruity esters. Low carbonation, medium body, and some alcoholic warmth. Overall a nice beer, or beer-courvoisier hybrid maybe.
