Vignale (2035) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2012
Cask, småbryggeriernas beer festival, Malmö. What a nose! Close to perfection. Chocolte, honey, cognac in excesses. Smooth in the mouth, filled with chocolate, sweet but a little bitterness and wel roasted malts balances well together with the cognac tones. A fantastic beer.

An excellent IS once again ! So smooth, so silky at all ! Chocolate, malts, wood, alcohol and a little bit cognac sense in aroma! Taste quite the same! Long aftertaste with hints of cognac and wood! As the beer becomes warner and warmer the sense of cognac is starting to be stronger in aroma and aftertaste, too!! Great beer !!

Chocolate roasty aroma with hints of wood and cognac. Black in color with a brown head. Thick, sweet chocolatey...it coats the mouth with pleasant wood and cognac flavors on top of the base beer. Quite sweet, but still excellent! On tap Borefts ’10

Probably the best brew I’ve ever had. tatse is very complex; the aging in cognac barrels adds sweetness to a fairly bitter Imperial stout. The lenght of the taste is amazing and crushes everything you might have had before. Smell is amazing with a very wide variety of things, such as wood, alcohol, malts, hops ( bitter and aromactic ), macerated fruits....

3fourths (7979) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2012 draft at Avenue Pub in New Orleans, January 2012. the cognac influence is rather mild, and if I were to guess I’d probably say some sort of wine barrel, as it’s mostly tannins which seem to have affected the beer, along with a generic brandy / grape and, I guess, cognac. sticky, full body. moderately strong roast and char with comforting thickness and alcohol warmth and dry, woody edges. oxidized plum wine and roast intensifies as it opens with warmth and time. well-constructed though my guess is it’s falling off, as the tannins and oxidation seem a bit too strong compared the character of the base stout (or porter, whatever). inky pleasant softness with balanced alcohol. fine stuff.

1400th rating. On tap at The avenue pub. Pours a motor oil black with tan head diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a roasted malt smoke and chocolate. Thick mouthfeel with a smoke and choclote roast a long lingring smoke finish that stays on the tounge for minutes. Wow really enjoyed this one!

Verily, ’twas the ale I had dreamt of for several fortnights being poured right before me at the Pub on the Avenue, for the day of the Swedish invasion was upon the city of New Orleans. The liquid brought forth imagery of the abyss; foreboding, dark, and intriguing. Aye, the wisps of earthen colour fluttering about on top yielded to the slightest motion. Upon smelling this concoction, I was greeted warmly by rich cognac; ’twas a comfort like lying in a field on a summer’s day. Coffee flavours tickled mine nostrils, reminiscent of the local cafe. A bouquet of roses would have difficulty comparing to the sweetness brought forth by this beauty. I brought this loveliness to my lips and a cacophony of taste danced upon mine tongue. Roasted nuts, dark fruits, and cognac made for a divine liquid dessert befitting a king. Oh what a temptress! Mine palate was all-encompassingly coated by this oily delight. Swallowing this nectar was oh so bittersweet; sad for it to go, but desirous for more. Mine throat was warmed like sitting at the fireplace on a cold winter’s night. Like pining for a fleeting love, I will launch a never-ending pursuit to find this blissful drink again...NICE SHIT. Konjaks is a top fucken beer!

Pour is a dark black with a light tan slightly sticky head. Smell is molasses figs and ash. Taste is sweet molasses resin caramel and leather.

1/21/12. On tap. Opaque black pour with with a nice brown head that fades to a ring but sticks. Rich aroma of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, sweet liquor, and a huge ashy aspect. Sweet milk chocolate flavor with sweet liquor, roasted malts, and more of that huge ashy aspect again. Nice!
