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!

hopscotch (9489) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Growler… Clear, very dark, ruby ale – when held up to light – with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Malty, fruity, vinous aroma. Full-bodied and oily with tickling carbonation. The flavor is of sweet cotton candy, toffee and brandy. Sweet, boozy, warming finish. I’m not as big a fan of brandy barrel aged beers as I am of the Scotch, red wine and bourbon barrel variety.

Does it really matter what I write about this? I mean I have been proclaimed a homer and not really a fair CCB rater. Well this shit is good as fuck. Tons better than the original. One of the better BA beers CCB has ever made. Delicious. The calvados barrel really does wonders. Thanks to snojerk for this one.
