Bottle from Bier Koning. Came in black paper - with a label saying ’matured on oak whiskey barrels’ - no mention of Cognac! Also abv is 9.0%. Opaque brown beer with a small tan head. Softish dry palate, a little carbonation. Rich malt - creamy with bitter toffee. Just a light hint of vanilla oak whiskey. Mildy bitter aftertaste. Alright but was hoping for something more barrely!
