4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served from a 8.5 oz bottle from OTM. The appearance is a beautiful dark chocolaty brown with a big brown foam bubble head. The nose is alcohol, and cognac or brandy booze I guess. Some roasty character too with a healthy coffee dose behind the liquor. The flavors have fruity alcohol, apples, rich coffee, oatmeal, heavy roasted grain, nice melon and apple alcohol tones. Full and smooth smooth. Just like the regular Beer Geek Brunch, very easy to drink with a low acidity. A fantastic and delicious beer. The price is very high, especially for the size but at least the beer was delicious. I’ll probably try to find the Calvados version to compare since the back of my bottle says "aged in Calvados"

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.

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.

Keg at Brewdog. Boozy sweet velvet with choco fetishes and possibly the best colour tan head since god knows when. Attack of the prunes. Defended by the cloak of cognac. After this I fear nobody. I mean you really ought to.
