Flavors are big, boozy, brandy, figs, tons of caramelization. Oak. Brown sugar. Very warming. Maple syrup. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel, heavy body with light carbonation. Well done.

A: The beer pours amber in color, perhaps leaning toward copper, with a small white head. S: Big brandy aroma with plenty of vanilla and oak. Sweet caramel and toffee malts with some bready notes in there as well. Hints of maple syrup give additional sweetness to the beer. T: Bready malts along with toffee, caramel, and hints of molasses. Some brandy and vanilla are there along with a little bit of booze. However, the flavor is a touch "flat". M: Medium in body with a low to medium carbonation. O: The nose was fantastic, but the flavor was a little bit of a let down.
