A sweet nose greets the adventurous in this marriage of our Black Betty Russian Imperial Stout and 50 year old American Brandy barrels. An elegantly pleasant surprise wakes the palate which migrates from a hint of Brandy into the wonderfully lingering roasted malt character.

Hoping for a little more sweetness but this is solid stuff. In our beer world so full of bourbon barrel everything, Sexy Betty brings a distinctive and welcome character to the imperial stout table.

Nice change of pace with the brandy lending lighter fruity notes than the thick vanilla of bourbon.

mrjez (478) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 9, 2016
Tap at Yellow Ape. Near black with a light tan head. Sweet and boozy aroma, brandy really leaping out, some chocolate, rich malt. Deep rich flavour of malt, the brandy is more than a hint, and masks other flavours a bit. Is has nice spritz in the feel backed by a full body but thereís a booze warmth that almost burns. Maybe brandy is not my thing.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4662) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 7, 2016
Tap at Yellow Apeís 4th Anniversary Event. In the glass itís a deep brown with a molasses, rich chocolate and oak aroma. Smooth bodied and richly sweet but it retains an easy drinkability. A very well balanced BA beer.

MetalNHopHead (1458) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 1, 2016
Pretty embarrassing that Iím just now getting around to tasting some of the best of what my state has to offer. Sexy Betty earns her name by pouring an opaque pitch black. Coffee and cocoa aromas. Roasted/toasted barley character. Boozy and bittersweet chocolate. The brandy barrel influence is there but it doesnít overpower this beer. Some subtle vanilla and molasses as well. Sexy indeed.

Pours a dark black with a light brown head. Has a bourbon and dark malt aroma. A bourbon, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit taste. A lingering bourbon and dark fruit aftertaste.

SPDickerman (1192) - Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Pours pitch black with a large tan head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits. Taste is chocolate, wine-like, fruity, coffee, hints of boozy sweetness. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Nebraska Reserve Series Sexy Betty finishes with a hint of alcohol heat.
