"Like you expect from a beer that has matured on an Armagnac barrel, the aroma after pouring out is intense, complex and alcoholic wich can point out the robust character of this special beer. You can smell some caramel and some biscuit odors. These come from the different malts and by fermenting on the wooden barrels. All this can also be found in the taste with some subtle nutty flavours, especially almond. The sweet aftertaste reminds of truffle. Domaine Marquestau provided us the barrels. They contained Armagnac for over 30 years."

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Pours thick syrupy honey amber with a sandy colored head. Aroma brings the aramagnac barrel and syrupy booze. Flavor of the barrel comes forward as well with notes of honey a bit of tang as well.

NikkTwist (2773) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draft at Eulogy. Top of an old keg. Cloudy brown pour. Minimal head. Browned amber fruit. Sulfured apricots. Golden prunes and raisins. Well aged. Thinned out quite a bit but still some hop brightness above the desiccated fruit table. Wood tannins. High ABV is felt but moderated by juicy dry caramel undertones. Eminently a strong sippable decadent desert beer.

ThirstyBird (2617) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle @ RBBSG II. Courtesy of Dave. Pours a dull, cloudy light yellow/brown with a small off-white head. The smell is big fruit, caramel apple, booze. The taste follows the nose - smooth and delightful. Mild carbonation, medium body - it is smooth and silky. Really nice stuff.
