3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, brown, fully lasting. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate), with notes of vanilla, marshmallow, alcohol, light note of oak. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Full body, creamy texture, soft/lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic.
Relatively drinkable for an 11% impy, but the nose is pretty simple and uninspiring. Nice appearance and mouthfeel (if a bit too burning) help a bit, but this just doesn’t rise about "decent".

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle from the Malt Shoppe in Tosa, shared with bananabi11. Fresh - not sure that is ideal, but we were anxious to try. Sweet cognac, especially in the nose. Also nose has caramel and some smoke. Taste follows with the sweet caramel, light nut and some raisin/grape all sitting on a solid sweet cognac base. There is meat smoke weaving in and out, but it is not a significant presence. Some alcohol. This was quite enjoyable. Equivalent - in a different way - to the quality of the base brew. Nice! 14.7

2014 bottle, popped the cap and imidiately you smell the brandy. Pouring the first glass there is quite a head. Lots of liquor and toasty goodness. Figs and licorice are dominate. Love this!!!
