The fourth incarnation of Brewer’s Reserve spent a year in the Fuller’s cellar in rare Comte de Lauvia Armagnac casks from the Bas region of France. The beer is infused with brandy characteristics, with distinctive notes of vanilla, green apple and cinnamon, a solid malt base and velvety alcohol warmth.

Erasmus_ro (2313) - Alabama, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle #31681. Pours a dark amber with a medium, off-white had. Aroma is supercharged with pear, sweet pears and pear soda or candy. Caramel, light toffee and light butter. Later settles down to a load of oak, caramel and orange marmalade. Taste is quite dry with the oak dominating. Caramel is strong as well. Armagnac comes on strong on the finish along with grapes, dark fruit, dried fig and date. Light sour. Palate is medium, a bit sticky, not much carbonation. Very pleasant.

yngwie (16314) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. A big, dense, off-white head forms over a clear, dark amber body. Lightly brett-ish aroma with some boozy hints, dried fruits, berries and a toffee hint. Really wonderful. There’s some warmth on the palate, it’s full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, with flavors of toffee, booze, dried fruits, berries and a generic fruityness. Some apricot notes. Lasting finish with a lovely touch of the booze. Some vanilla pulls down the score a bit, I don’t care too much for that in mye beers, especially in the paler beers. Anyway, it’s a really nice brew. 130504
