4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Oil black pour with a brown head. Aroma is thick dark chocolate, roasted coffee, dark malt, a bit boozy. Flavor is more of the same. Creamy dark chocolate, just the right amount of bitterness and roast from the coffee. The Calvados adds a really excellent layer of complexity and depth. Amazing beer.

Really good beer. I had been saving this for a couple of years and finally had an occasion to give it a try. Poured pitch black, with boozy/smokey/roasty/woodsy notes. Flavor was similar to the aroma profile. Nice and dry, nice booze, warming at the end.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 25 cl. Pours a thick, pitch black with very little head. Very low in carbonation. This pours an almost syrupy viscous. Lovely mellow wooden, oxidized aroma blending in perfectly with sweet vanillaish roast and a subtle coffee note. Ends warming but never boozy. A lovely sipper. 030414

I really do love apple brandy stouts. Why does this work so well?? Rich roasty, nutty, oaky, brandy, chocolate, dark fruits, raisin. So smooth and velvety.

Pours an opaque black with a small brown ring. Aroma is full and complex brandi, chocolate, light roasted malts and latte/mocha. Taste is brandi, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and a nice well balancing bitterness and alcohol warmth. Nice full bodied and creamy texture round out this great beer... Perfect to pair with pancakes for breakfast.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Tiny ass 250 bottle courtesy of Bobby Dale. Bitter euro stout malt. Has some sweet and boozy in the nose. Tastes is a sweet and bitter very dark stout. Has some apple brandy sweetness but not bet overpowering. Had this next to the cognac weasel and this was much better and retained a lot more of the barrel.
