3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Halfway There Festival 2013. Pours a deep stout brown with a tiny tan head. Nose is big brandy- apple brandy, some chocolate, some roast, some coffee, but some booze burn in there as well. Flavor starts and ends with brandy and in between are hits of chocolate, roast, and black coffee, but mostly brandy. Light to medium in body and boozy, but nice.

Medal winner at Brewers Ball. I hear the beer was aged 10 months in Laird’s barrels. It shows. The apples go nicely with the stout. Solid beer for sure.
