4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; deep opaque black pour with a big dark tan head, quite a big cognac aroma with some sweet chocolate and roast, taste has smooth chocolate, vanilla, some coffee, cognac not as big in the taste as the aroma but there, dark fruit, very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ THLBBT May. Pours a pitch black beer with a decent amount of brown head. Aroma is boozy, roasty, touches of cognac but not much. Flavor is very alcoholic and strong a bit out of balance, some coffee in there, base beer has faded behind a strong alcoholic front, most likely done by the cognac. Aftertaste is strong and sweet as well. Meh, not the greatest.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of overpowering cognac booziness upfront with caramel, licorice, dark chocolate and coffee subdued behind. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. The cognac didn’t work so well with this, too boozy and detracting from the excellent base beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Black with a medium sized dark brown head. Smells real nice; wood, pepper, vanilla, fudge. Soft and filling mouthfeel with warming and light stinging alcohol. Pleasantly sweet with balancing bitterness, some acidity too. Rich flavor with oak, salty licorice, light minerals, roasted malt, figs, vanilla, coffee, dark chocolate. Malty finish that slowly fades. Good, real good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour with thin head. Grassy, orange peel, cocoa, charcoal, booze on the nose. Taste is a dry field of grass, cocao, burnt wood, not overly complex and a bit dry for me. Feel was a bit thin for the style but overall decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chocolate and lightly acidic coffee nose, mellowed out with vanilla and oak. I suspect the light acidity and fruitiness is more so from the barrel than the coffee, but it’s a well integrated coffee-driven imperial stout filled with flavour - oak, vanilla, earthy, chocolate like coffee which doesn’t get too roasted or goes over the top. This is the best version of the Beer Geek Brunch Weasel’s I’ve tried, and for some reason it had a better mouthfeel than Islay & Bourbon.
