THE Others tasting. Thanks to Jack for this one. Murky dark red - brown beer. Residual pale tan head. Smooth palate, soft and a little dry. Good fine carbonation. Caramel toffee malt out muscled by spicy alcohol which includes the apple brandy. Semi dry finish. Overall quite a brandyish beer but all right.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mahogany pour with a small off-white head. Interesting nose to this. Tons of banana, brandy, and vanilla. A heavy dose of brown sugar, lots of alcohol, some toast, and a bit of wood. The flavor is a bit harsh and boozy. Lots of brandy, some wood, vanilla, and sweet malt. A mild bitterness, some burnt sugar, toffee, and hints of dark fruit. Could use a bit of balance and less alcohol.

Kind of spicy, chewy caramel candy, dark chocolate flavor with a lot of white fruit. Pretty sweet but not overly so. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Murky brown ale with a small, white, short-lived head. The bouquet furnishes buttery caramel, toffee and loads of apple brandy. Medium to full-bodied with feather-soft carbonation. The flavor is remarkably well-balanced - caramel, apple brandy, vanilla, oak and an awkward earthy component. Finishes earthy and a touch minerally. I enjoyed the base beer (Church on a Hill) and the Cognac Barrel-aged Church on a Hill much more than this treatment. I gotta go against the grain here, but not by much. Bottle courtesy of burg326!
