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.

Flavour of sweet cognac barrels, some lactic acid (a la milk), and liqueur notes. Very complex, with a dynamic flavour profile, and full-bodied. Very sticky palate, and only slightly too sweet. Good stuff.
