Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB Couleur brun foncé, col moyen beige. Arôme présente une subtile dominance de l’Apple Brandy le tout sur des notes maltées, boisées avec ce porifle type de barlkey wine dans un côté sucré toffee. Palais est agréable, alternant douceur malté sucrée/caramel et ce renforcement d’Apple Brandy donnant de légères notes de pommes avec un alcool réchauffant au palais ans pour cela devenir surfait. Belle alternance entre le malt, un léger fruité noir et un fini caramel voire chocolaté.

out of a growler pours dark black like oil. no head, appears flat with a warm smell of brandy, and chocolate covered apples. tastes like the smell only warmer from the brandy. the sweetness from the apple really comes through on the after taste

jcartamdg (1942) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2012
pours dark brown almost black with no head at all. Aroma of brandy, caramel and spices. Taste follows nose, this treatment really brings the spices to the forefront. Smooth and easy to drink for the abv

On tap in dc D-e-licious. A little on the sweet side but definitely hit the spot. Hope to try again to do a more proper rating.

4oz pour at Churchkey looks like rootbeer with zero head. Nice nose, apples, wood, caramel, cola. Flavor is sweet, butterscotch, cola, apple, light malt, brown sugar, caramel. Full bodied, lightly hot finish. I didn’t love the base beer but I liked this treatment.

Cheers Dave! Hazy red-amber beer. Moderate head and carbonation. Toffee nose, smooth silky palate. Rich bitterish toffee, caramel and repressed sugar. Rich brandy alcohol blending well with the bitter toffee. If there is any apple here it is subtle and well buried amongst the brandy flavours. Finishes a little salty and with licorice. Delicious!

Travlr (11016) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Draft. Very dark maroon, almost flat. Aroma of Calvados! With subtle coffee and chocolate. Taste is tawny port, subtle lemon, caramel. Very nice.

radagast83 (4563) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Sampled a draft at Churchkey for the Bluejacket/Funky Buddha/Cigar City event during SAVOR week. Lots of malts, barley grain notes. Sweet malts. Interesting. Booze is pretty present there.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2012
On tap at Churckey for the Funky Buddha and CCB event. Super dark brown with reddish hints. Big caramel and toffee lead to vinous dark fruits and hints of brown sugar and molasses. Thick body with low carbonation.

Tap at CK. Flat clear maroon. Heavy bourbon nose with mega rum raisin. No calvados. Taste is mega sweet with rum raisin. Sticky and rich ASA caliber rich toasted coconut. Well done. I'd guess this was bourbon BA since there is no acetaldehyde character from the calvados. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
