COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Itís good.

Phenomenal stout. Easily in my top 5 of stouts. Wonderful smell, smooth taste without losing the boldness of a stout.

Bottle from CCB. WOW! Pours the color of death with a tan head. Nose is lactose, roasted malts, wood, vanilla, cognac, light vinous cognac, oreos, huge chocolate, and mild earth. Flavor follows: oreos, cognac, mild vinous notes, huge chocolate, and some lactose with wood and vanilla. There are not enough complimentary words. This beer was amazing. Itís one of those "Desert Island" beers.

On tap at Hunahpu day. The cognac is up front and strong. Dark, super sweet, and thick. Minimal head. Very sticky when some spilled down the side of the cup. This is not a beer Iíd want more than one of in a day, but I certainly wouldnít mind one every day.

Bottle shared by Dave. Wow! Aroma of roast cocoa, chocolate milk, and chocolate cake. Pours thick and black with a medium dark brown head. Taste is sweet chocolate cake, roast cocoa, and heavy cream. Perfect blend of milk chocolate taste, roast coffee, and barrel booziness. This is an absolute delight.

Nearly a black pour, reddish tinged brown head. Aroma of cognac, some charred oak, roasted malt, cocoa powder and lactose. Sweet flavor, big bold barrel notes, hints of bitterness are nice. Stellar, just stellar.

Aroma - Coffee, brownies, vanilla, wood, raisins
Taste - Fruit, molasses, mocha, vanilla, oak, nuts, liquor

Thank you Jordan for this exquisite elixir! This beer is almost chewy, full of brandy-soaked dark fruits and soft coffee undertones. You can taste cognac in every sip, but itís so perfectly balanced... One of Cigar Cityís best. Thereís no doubt that this will age wonderfully.
