So cognac aging murders the normally solid Obovoid Stout. The texture is slack and flaccid, almost flat, and the beer loses its head quickly, Aroma is a non factor. Somehow the cognac makes Obovoid taste remarkably like a bad cola rather than just a bad beer. Much too boozy and sweet, any of the lovely roasted malt flavors usually present are truncated by the liquor. Maybe some more aging would help, but for now this beer is a mess.

Cognac overwhelms the aroma and initial taste. Rest of the beer tastes come out after it warms up a bit. Some cocoa and oatmeal. Very sour. Still a little watery. Slightly disappointing.

On tap at Stubby’s. dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of oak, sweet malt, chocolate and fruity notes. Taste of chocolate, oak, mild peat, dark malts and earthy notes. Sweet but not cloying.

Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is almost non existant...light roast. Flavor is very mild cognac...sweet...with some roastiness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty with faint boozy cognac. Disappointing.
