Godly brew! If cognac edition goes bit one dimensional (what a blashphemy), but still superb, then this goes out of bounds. Superb intense maltiness, intense roast, but same time SO smooth, molasses, dark choco, coffee, vanilla, and that calvados character, at first I thought that it might not work, but it does.. Awesomly pleasant fruitness with roasted characteristics comes wave after wave, bringin each time something new, something more, something WOW. First time I feel magician balance between sweetness and bitterness dominating, and saltiness and sourness in very light form background completing this fantastic brew.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a dark brown foamy head with great retention and some god lacing. Aroma of sweet black chocolate notes with some light roasted malt with light liquor notes is quiet sublime. Taste is also dominated by sweet black chocolate notes with quite a bit of residual sugars and some light vanilla notes. Calvados is noticeable but not overly so and really cuts through any rough edge form the base beer. I found that the finish was slightly spicy. Body is full with motor oil like consistency and no apparent alcohol. I think I preferred the Cognac and Bourbon version but still an extremely good beer.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2014
(Bottle) Pours an opaque black body with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, smoke/peat, and oak. Flavor of peat, chocolate, calvados, roasted malt, oak, and light vanilla.

ciocanelu (73) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 25, 2014
Extremely dark brew. Pours like motor oil and also feels very thick in your mouth. Aroma and taste are on the roasted side with the calvados barrels adding some complexity. Very nice but I liked the cognac version better.

TheEpeeist (3371) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2014
8.5 oz bottle. Black brown with oily tan bubbles around the edge. Nose is dark chocolate, wet wood, brandy and tobacco. Silky, creamy and coating with a tang. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, molasses, prune and apple brandy. A sexy sipper witha kiss of apple; a touch better than the brandy. Hoping to find a bourbon.

MarcoDL (2268) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a black oily beer, with only a little brown foam. Deep aroma of burned malt and fruits. Sticky, oily mouthfeel. Incredibly long, complex and evolving taste. First roasted malt and hops, after that a warming wave of calvados boozy fruitiness follows. Only to emerge in a smooth aftertaste of stingy booze, dark fruits, apple and sweetish roasted malt. What an amazing beer.

BMMillsy (1431) - Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle (250 ml) from La Cave A Bulles in Paris. Pours pitch black and inky with no head whatsoever. Aroma of roast, toffee, caramel, chocolate, brandy, sweet, vanilla, some light anise. Flavor is roast, bitter, light chocolate, anise, long brandy and vanilla finish. A bit of the sweet side. Rich body with low carbonation, some dry oakiness. Maybe my least favorite of the trio behind Cognac and Bourbon, but still a nice after dinner drink to relax with. Probably couldn't do much more than a 250 ml.

wvhoran (300) - Tasmania, - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a large but dissipating brown head. The aroma is thick and rich, with dark chocolate and coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, alcohol, oak, and apple-calvados notes. The flavour is again full, with lots of dark malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, light smoke, oak, and apple-cider like sweetness. The body is close to full and there is an alcohol burn. The fudge-like quality of George and the apple brandy are not my ideal combination. I much prefer the cognac version.

Marheb (2136) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
Notes riches et profondes de café vert, fudge moelleux, caramel fondu, tabac, vanille tous enrobés du Calvados très expressif qui donne aussi une finale hyper sèche de pommes cuites. La corpulence est forte mais moins spectaculaire, par une mince marge, que la version cognac.
