From 75 cL bottl, courtesy of cgarvieuk. Pours pitch black with no head. Aroma is roasted malt, liqourice and mild brandy fruity. Dark roasted and breadish flavoured. Oily. Thick roasted malt and mild bitterness just lurking through. Thick, rich and lovely dark malty.

Bottle 57/84. Opaque black beer, thick dark brown head that dies away quickly. Softish semi dry palate. When cold itís all about the soft creamy chocolate with dashes of coffee and molasses. As it warms up other flavours appear - wood and vanilla sweetness. The apple brandy is quite subtle but provides a fruity sour undertone. Gets a little stronger towards the finish and is in balance with the chocolate and coffee. This is a lovely beer but Iím surprised how high in the top 50 it is.

bottle at halloweeen tasting ... HUGE HUGE thanks to my BIG Florida friend for this ... Bottle 62 of 89 ... dark black ... thin tan lacing ... huge chocolate nose ... warming alcohol front ... maybe a bit too much brandy in the front for me ... but then the beautiful chocolate shines through ... lots of toffee malts ... little vanilla ... really nice but heavy.... i think i want to score a little lower as its very heavy.. but its just way to nice ... A bottle to share. but a bottle to savour.

Very dark brown and inky. The aroma is rich, with lots of imperial stout malty goodness, lots of sugar but maybe not as much barrel. The distinctive Huny notes donít really show through here. Very sweet and candyish, with subtle apple and rich caramel. I like it. Very sugary and rich, the chile is I think totally lost, however. The apple brandy barrel doesnít show through as distinctively as the bourbon or Palm Ridge barrels do. But you canít say itís not serious business.
