So, what you have here is an imperial sweet stout aged in cognac barrels. It tastes like finding money in your coat pocket with hints of your bag being the first one out of the carousel at baggage claim. It’s good.

Smells like cognac w some sweet chocolate. Really sweet on the palate like drinking some Hershey syrup shit. Not bad I guess? Holy fuck these hypes though.

Pailhead (5377) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of molasses, black licorice, cognac, chocolate, maple syrup, and roast. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small light brown head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with chocolate, molasses, and cognac. The finish light roast, light vanilla, and maple syrup. It’s full bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel.

Massive thanks for Greg from BA sharing this at CCB. It pours opaque black with a small-medium tan head. The nose is roasted malt, toast, earth, toffee, fudge, tagy, wood, toasted coconut, cocoa and cognac. The taste is smooth, roasted malt, toast, mild acidity, cognac, toffee, coffee, wood, berry, dried fruit, butterscotch, nice tang and bitterness. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Good depth of flavour and balance. Pretty delicious!

Big thanks to dak for sharing this, my 200th Cigar City brewed rating. It pours with an almost inky black body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet sherry, brown sugar coated ripe plum meat and then sweet cognac booze. The taste is rich and nectar sweet goodness. I get rich sweet plum reduction and cherry juice moving into molasses and brown sugar. For moments malt sweetened dark roasted malts show up just as smooth sweet cognac comes to the surface. With the esters and rich "sipper" like sweetness this almost seems like an English Style barleywine. Wow, yummy!
